Powell went undrafted in the 2003 NBA Draft and played in Europe. He played in two games in the 2003–04 season with Lokomotiv-Rostov in the Russian Superleague, before finishing the season with Scafati Basket of the Italian Second Division. In the 2004–05 season, Powell averaged 15.9 points and 11.9 rebounds per game with JuveCaserta Basket in the Italian Second Division. Powell then worked out for numerous NBA teams, and was eventually signed by the Dallas Mavericks, who were looking for a power forward to develop behind star Dirk Nowitzki.
At the beginning of the 2005–2006 season, Powell was in the D-League and put up solid numbers until he was called up to the NBA, where he played only in "garbage time," when the game had already been practically decided. But, after injuries to starting small forward Josh Howard and backup power forward Keith Van Horn, he began to get more time when Nowitzki was in need of rest.
He was traded on July 23, 2006, along with Darrell Armstrong and Rawle Marshall to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Anthony Johnson. He had a guaranteed contract for the 2006–2007 season with the Pacers.
Golden State Warriors
On January 17, 2007, Powell was dealt to the Golden State Warriors along with teammates Stephen Jackson, Šarūnas Jasikevičius, and Al Harrington for Troy Murphy, Mike Dunleavy, Ike Diogu, and Keith McLeod.
Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles Lakers
After starting center Andrew Bynum went down with an injury, Powell began to play a substantial amount of minutes, and had his best pro-season yet. However, with Bynum's return, Powell saw almost all of his minutes cut. On June 14, 2009, Powell won his first NBA championship, in a 99–86 victory over the Orlando Magic. On June 17, 2010, Powell won his second straight NBA championship, in an 83–79 Game 7 victory over the Boston Celtics.
San Antonio Spurs
After playing in China, Powell signed to play in the Swiss 2nd Division with Neuchâtel Basket. However, he left before playing a game for them. On March 29, 2012, Powell agreed to a deal to play with Brujos de Guayama of the BSN, Puerto Rico's professional basketball league.
New York Knicks
On September 18, 2015, Powell signed with the Milwaukee Bucks. However, he was later waived by the Bucks on October 21, 2015 after appearing in four preseason games. On December 3, he signed with San Lorenzo of Argentina.
