Charlotte and New Orleans

He was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with the 19th pick of the 2000 NBA Draft, and filled a reserve role for his first two seasons in which he averaged 6.5 points in 16.8 minutes per game. In 2002–03, the Hornets' first year in New Orleans, he started all 82 games, averaging 10.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.

During the 2003–04 season, Magloire averaged 13.6 points and 10.3 rebounds per game while starting all 82 games, and was named to the Eastern Conference All-Star Team. He became only the second Canadian All-Star in the NBA, after Steve Nash. Magloire played well, leading the Eastern All-Stars with 19 points,[2] along with 8 rebounds in 21 minutes of action.

Milwaukee

Jamaal Magloire with the Milwaukee Bucks

On October 26, 2005, he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Desmond Mason, a 2006 first-round draft pick and cash considerations.[3]

Portland

On July 31, 2006, during the off-season, Magloire was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers for Steve Blake, Ha Seung-Jin, and Brian Skinner.[4]

Although Magloire has averaged nearly 10 points per game throughout his entire NBA career, he did not score over nine points in a single game during his first 20 games as a Trail Blazer. In fact, only eight times did Magloire record over 11 points during 81 regular season games in 2006–07.[5] Magloire finished the season with an average of only 21 minutes played per game, down from 30 minutes played in the previous two seasons. Magloire became a free agent in the off-season.

New Jersey

The New Jersey Nets signed Magloire on July 17, 2007.[6] In the 2007–08 season, he played limited minutes, averaging only 1.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. Magloire was waived by the Nets on February 22, 2008.[7]

Dallas

The Dallas Mavericks signed Magloire on February 26, 2008 to back up center Erick Dampier after former Maverick center DeSagana Diop was traded to the New Jersey Nets in the blockbuster trade involving point guards Devin Harris and Jason Kidd.[8]

Miami

Magloire signed with the Miami Heat on August 30, 2008 for the veteran's minimum after nearing the luxury tax threshold.[9] Magloire provides additional depth and experience at the center position. He was upgraded to starter on Monday, January 26, 2009 vs. the Atlanta Hawks.[10] NBC 6 Sports in Miami reported that Magloire has re-signed with the Heat for the 2009–10 season. Details of the contract were not readily available. Magloire has been valued as an enforcer during his tenure with Miami.

Personal

In the early morning hours of June 23, 2001, Magloire's half-brother, 19-year-old Justin Sheppard, was shot and killed on the footbridge that spans the ravine around Rosedale Valley Road between Bloor Street East and Glen Road near Sherbourne subway station in Toronto. Like Magloire, Sheppard was a promising basketball talent at Eastern Commerce, and was supposed to begin a scholarship at a Maryland prep school that fall. Magloire helped post a CAD$50,000 reward, but to date, there have been no arrests.[11][12]
