Following his college career, Craven played for the Dallas Mavericks summer league team before continuing his career overseas.[5] Craven has played professional basketball in Turkey, Venezuela, the D-League, and France.[6] He spent the 2008-09 season with Stade Clermontois BA of the French League and averaged 19.6 PPG to go along with his three steals per game.[1]
