After an all-conference career at Texas Christian University, Nailon was a second round (43rd overall) pick of the Charlotte Hornets in the 1999 NBA Draft. He has played for the Hornets (in separate stints for both Charlotte and New Orleans franchises in 2000-02 and 2004-05 respectively), the New York Knicks (2002-03), Atlanta Hawks (2003-04), Orlando Magic (2003-04), Cleveland Cavaliers (2003-04) and Philadelphia 76ers (2005-06). He holds NBA career averages of 8.6 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. His international experience includes playing for Adecco Milano in Italy (1999-00), Bnei HaSharon in Israel (2006-07), Lokomotiv Novosibirsk in Russia (2007-08), Al-Riyadi in Lebanon, Leones de Ponce (2009) and Piratas de Quebradillas in Puerto Rico.

In the 2006-07 season, Nailon led Bnei Hasharon to the Israeli Cup final, shocking the everlasting champions, Maccabi Tel Aviv, in the semifinal (eventually losing to Hapoel Jerusalem in the final).
