Quinton Lenord Ross (born April 30, 1981) is an American professional basketball player.

High school and college[edit]

Ross led Dallas's Justin F. Kimball High School to the state finals, but they lost in the championship game.

He went undrafted in the 2003 NBA Draft after graduating from Southern Methodist University, where he majored in economics. Ross averaged 14.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 119 games played over his four-year collegiate career. He finished his career at SMU as the school's fourth all-time leading scorer with 1,763 points,[1] and was named all-Conference USA first team in 2003.[2]

Professional[edit]

He was the final player waived by the Clippers before the start of the regular season. Following that 2003 preseason in which he averaged 5.4 points, 0.8 rebounds, and 0.8 assists in five games with the Clippers, Ross signed with Telindus Oostende of Belgium for one season (2003–04).[3] During his time overseas, he averaged 16.7 points and 4.8 rebounds. Ross signed a four-year free agent contract with the Clippers on August 16, 2004.

On January 17, 2007, Ross scored 24 points in a win against the Golden State Warriors.[4] His previous career high occurred on May 18, 2006, against the Phoenix Suns in game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals, when he scored 18 points.[5]

On September 26, 2008, Ross signed a contract with the Memphis Grizzlies.[3] His first[6] cousin[3] Darrell Arthur was his teammate on the Grizzlies. On July 8, 2009, Ross signed a contract with the Dallas Mavericks.[7]

On February 13, 2010, Ross was traded to the Washington Wizards along with Josh Howard, Drew Gooden and James Singleton for Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood, and DeShawn Stevenson.[8]

On June 29, 2010, Ross was traded to the New Jersey Nets for Yi Jianlian and cash.[9] He was waived by the Nets on March 31, 2011.[10]

During the 2012–13 season, he played in France.[11]
