|Career highlights and awards|
Vaught played at East Kentwood High School in Kentwood, Michigan, a suburb of Grand Rapids, and helped lead the University of Michigan Wolverines to the 1989 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship.
Vaught was drafted in 1990 by the Los Angeles Clippers. For a short period in the mid 1990s, Vaught was one of the most consistent forwards in the league, averaging 16.2 points and approximately 10 rebounds per game while missing only four games between 1994 and 1997. Injuries sustained in 1997 hampered his career, and after that he never played more than 51 games in a season. Vaught closed out his career with a series of brief stints with the Detroit Pistons, Dallas Mavericks, and Washington Wizards. He had a well earned reputation as an outstanding rebounder (especially on the defensive end of the court). He twice finished among the top ten overall and top ten defensive rebounders.
