Professional career

Haislip was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks as the 13th pick of the 2002 NBA Draft. During his rookie year Haislip was inserted into the starting line-up for the final nine games of the 2002‚Äď03 NBA season. When the playoffs started he was relegated to the bench. He remained a bench player with the Bucks for his first two seasons until being placed on waivers on November 4, 2004. He was signed by the Indiana Pacers during the 2004‚Äď05 season in order to fill the team's gap at power forward, due to the 15-game suspension of Jermaine O'Neal.

He started playing for √úlkerspor in the 2005‚Äď06 season. In March 2006, he left the team without authorization and returned to the United States due to "family issues", according to a teammate. He was selected to the TBL (Turkish Basketball League) All-Star Game and also participated in the Slam Dunk contest, which he won. He signed with Turkish Basketball League powerhouse Efes Pilsen in August 2006.[2]

Haislip returned to the U.S. with Pilsen in October 2006, when the team played a pair of exhibition games against NBA teams. Pilsen played the Denver Nuggets in Denver on October 11, and played the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on October 13. Haislip scored 13 points and added 9 rebounds against the Warriors.[3] On July 13, 2007, Haislip signed with the Spanish ACB club Unicaja M√°laga.[4]

Haislip was signed by the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA on July 5, 2009.[5]
