From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jamal Wesley Sampson (born May 15, 1983 in Inglewood, California) is an American professional basketball player. He is a power forward-center.

Sampson attended the University of California, Berkeley, playing only one season, and was selected by the Utah Jazz in the second round (47th overall) in the 2002 NBA Draft, and was traded along with Ryan Humphrey to the Orlando Magic for Curtis Borchardt. The Magic then traded Sampson to the Milwaukee Bucks for Rashard Griffith.

After barely playing with the Bucks, Sampson was signed by the Los Angeles Lakers, appearing in only 10 games. He was later selected by the Charlotte Bobcats in the expansion draft in 2004, and signed as a free agent with the Sacramento Kings in 2005-2006. On July 28, 2006, Sampson signed with the Denver Nuggets and played a further 22 NBA games.

Sampson was waived by the Dallas Mavericks, on October 22, 2007, during the NBA preseason.

In 2009, he signed with the Smart Gilas developmental team in the Philippines as the team’s candidate to be a naturalized player for future international competition.[1]

He is the cousin of 1983's number one NBA draft pick Ralph Sampson.[2]
