Kerry Kittles2002-03 Playoff Stats: 20 G, 20 GS, 10.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 2.0 APG, 1.5 SPG, 0.3 BPG, .395 FG%, .413 3P%, .762 FT%, 13.4 PER
Following his most efficient season as a pro in 2002-03 (18.3 PER), Kittles would spend one more season as a Nets guard. After seven seasons in New Jersey, the Nets traded the Villanova all-time leading scorer to the Clippers for a second round pick in the summer of 2004. The 2005 second round pick was then traded to the Golden State Warriors for Clifford Robinson. The Warriors used the pick to select Chris Taft, a player that never logged a minute in the NBA. Of note, the 2005 draft also produced current Nets Deron Williams (3rd overall to Utah) and Andray Blatche (49th overall to Washington) as well as “prototypical center” Johan Petro (25th overall to Seattle).
Kittles would spend one injury-plagued season with the Clippers before retiring in 2005. Since his retirement, the 8th overall pick in the 1996 draft has gone on to earn an MBA from his alma mater, Villanova, as well as some scouting work for the Nets.
Rumors that the Knicks have asked Kittles to come out of retirement have not been verified.
