During his rookie year Haislip was inserted into the starting line-up for the final nine games of the 2002–03 NBA season. When the playoffs started he was relegated to the bench. He remained a bench player with the Bucks for his first two seasons until being placed on waivers on November 4, 2004. He was signed by the Indiana Pacers during the 2004–05 season in order to fill the team's gap at power forward, due to the 15-game suspension of Jermaine O'Neal.

He started playing for Ülkerspor in the 2005–06 season. In March 2006, he left the team without authorization and returned to the United States due to "family issues", according to a teammate. He was selected to the TBL (Turkish Basketball League) All-Star Game and also participated in the Slam Dunk contest, which he won. He signed with Turkish Basketball League powerhouse Efes Pilsen in August 2006.[2]

Haislip scored 13 points and added 9 rebounds against the Warriors.[3] On July 13, 2007, Haislip signed with the Spanish ACB club Unicaja Málaga.[4]
