Basketball career[edit]

A McDonald's All-American, the 6'5" shooting guard Glover was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the 20th overall pick of the 1999 NBA Draft, from Georgia Tech. He played for the Hawks until February 2004, posting career-high averages in 2003–04: 10 points, four rebounds and two assists, with the Georgia team failing to make the playoffs.

After being waived by the Hawks, Glover played with the Toronto Raptors, then appeared in seven regular season games with the San Antonio Spurs, during the 2004–05 season.

On December 5, 2005, he was waived by the Houston Rockets (no competitive games played), and played overseas in Turkey, Lebanon, Israel and the Dominican Republic before retiring.

Glover created the Dion Glover Foundation in 2000. A non-profit organization, it operates only on the support of charitable contributions and donations for educational, medical and scientific purposes, all being devoted to youth aid and development.
