Professional career[edit]

Maxey began his professional career in 2001 with Ferro Carril Oeste in Argentina where he averaged 22.3 points and 5.3 rebounds per game before returning to the United States where he signed with the Pennsylvania ValleyDawgs. He then played in Finland, the NBA Development League, Hungary and Mexico before returning to Argentina in 2006. He played the next three seasons in Central and South America before moving to Australia in 2009 where he played for the Gold Coast Blaze during the 2009–10 NBL season. After earning Australian NBL Best Sixth Man honors, he joined the Wellington Saints where he helped them win championships in 2010 and 2011. Over the next two and a bit years, he spent time in Japan, Colombia and Uruguay before returning to New Zealand in March 2013 as he teamed up with the Nelson Giants for the 2013 New Zealand NBL season.[1] In September 2013, he re-joined Union Atletica Montevideo and played 12 games for the club before leaving in January 2014.

On March 26, 2015, Maxey signed with the Toowoomba Mountaineers for the 2015 Queensland Basketball League season.[2][3] He led his team to the quarter-finals with a fifth-place finish and an 11–6 win/loss record.[4] On August 18, he played for the QBL All-Stars in an exhibition match against the LSU Tigers men's basketball team, scoring five points in a 91–88 loss.[5][6] Four days later, the Mountaineers were knocked out of the playoffs, losing their semi-final match-up to the Mackay Meteors. Maxey helped the Mountaineers go from last on the ladder in 2014, to a semi-final appearance in 2015.[7] He appeared in all 19 games for the Mountaineers in 2015, averaging 26.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.4 steals per game,[8] on his way to earning All-League Team honors alongside teammate Jeremy Kendle.[9]
