Keyon Latwae Dooling (born May 8, 1980) is an American retired professional basketball guard in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and attended the University of Missouri. Before joining the Grizzlies in 2013, he played for the Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, New Jersey Nets, Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics.

Professional career[edit]

A 6'3" (1.91 m), 195 lbs (88 kg) point guard from the University of Missouri, Dooling was selected by the Orlando Magic with the 10th overall pick of the 2000 NBA Draft, and traded on draft day to the Los Angeles Clippers along with Corey Maggette, Derek Strong and cash for a future first-round selection.

Dooling signed with the Miami Heat for 2004–05, and returned to the team that originally selected him in the draft, the Orlando Magic, in the 2005 NBA off-season, where he was used as a backup guard, at both positions, during his three-year stint. In a January 11, 2006 game against the Seattle SuperSonics, Dooling and eventual teammate, Ray Allen were involved in a scuffle that suspended Dooling for five games and Allen for three.

In July 2008, Dooling was re-signed by the Magic then traded to the New Jersey Nets. In his first season with New Jersey, Dooling became a component to the team and flourished in the Nets' new "dribble-drive" offense. He posted career highs in points, assists, and minutes per game.

On July 19, 2010, Dooling signed with the Milwaukee Bucks.

On December 9, 2011, Dooling and a 2012 second-round pick were traded to Boston Celtics in exchange for the draft rights to Albert Miralles.[1]

On July 31, 2012, Dooling re-signed with the Celtics.[2]

On September 20, 2012, Dooling was waived by the Celtics.[3][4] He then became a player development coordinator for the Celtics,[5] but on April 3, 2013, he officially came out of retirement and signed with the Memphis Grizzlies.[6] On April 6, 2013, the Grizzlies assigned him to the Reno Bighorns of the NBA D-League.[7] He was recalled the next day.[8]

He retired for the second time in 2013 to become a life coach in the NBA and the NBA D-League.
