Abstract from Wikipedia : Victor Joe Alexander (born August 31, 1969) is a retired American professional basketball player who was selected by the Golden State Warriors in the first round (17th pick overall) of the 1991 NBA Draft after playing collegiately at Iowa State University. At 6'9" and 265 pounds, he played as a center and power forward. Alexander played five seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA), mainly for the Golden State Warriors from 1991 to 1995. The Warriors traded him to the Toronto Raptors with other players for B. J. Armstrong in 1995, but he never officially played for the Raptors. Toronto traded him first to the Cleveland Cavaliers (he failed the physical and the trade was rescinded) and eventually to the New York Knicks. The Knicks waived Alexander before he played for them. He had a brief stint with the Detroit Pistons during the 2001–02 season. In his NBA career, Alexander played in a total of 286 games and averaged 8.9 ppg. Alexander also played overseas for top teams in Greece (AEK Athens BC and PAOK BC), Israel (Maccabi Tel Aviv), Spain (TAU Ceramica) and Russia (CSKA), participating in many Euroleague games. His performances with CSKA earned him an All-Euroleague First Team selection in 2003.
