Amateur career

He attended St. Edward High School in Lakewood, Ohio. He starred alongside Sam Clancy Jr., leading St. Edward to the 1998 Ohio High School Athletic Association State "big school" basketball championship during their senior year. Logan won the Gatorade player of the year award in his senior year. He would graduate in 1998.

He attended the University of Cincinnati becoming one of the best players in the country in his junior and senior years. In his senior season, he averaged 22.0 points per game, 12th best in the country. He is Cincinnati's second all-time leading scorer with 1,985 points (behind Oscar Robertson) and second in assists with 456. He was named First Team All-America by the Associated Press and First Team All-Conference USA.[1] In July 2009, Cincinnati announced that Logan would be inducted into the UC Athletics Hall of Fame in February 2010.[2]

Pro career

Despite strong performances in his senior year, Logan slipped to the second round of the 2002 NBA Draft, where he was drafted by the Golden State Warriors with the first pick of the second round (30th overall). It is believed Logan fell to the second round mainly due to concern about his height. Although his listed height was 6'0", Logan was probably closer to 5'10". As a result of being a second-round selection, the Warriors refused to offer him a guaranteed contract, while Logan and his agent argued that he should have been offered a guaranteed contract since he was in fact the 29th player taken in the draft (this was because the Minnesota Timberwolves had to forfeit their first-round pick). After a bitter contract dispute with the Warriors, Logan did not sign a contract. His draft rights were later traded to the Dallas Mavericks. In 2006, he played in Poland (Znicz Jarosław), and the next year in Israel. As of 2009, Logan has never been on an NBA roster and has yet to appear in an NBA game.
