John Garfield "Toby" Bailey (born November 19, 1975 in Los Angeles, California) is an American professional basketball player, in the shooting guard position.


College career

Bailey played four years of college basketball at UCLA, being part of the Bruins squad that won the 1995 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. All of the team's starting lineup - himself, Ed O'Bannon, Tyus Edney, George Zidek and Charles O'Bannon[1]- went on to play in both the National Basketball Association and overseas.

Professional career

Bailey was selected by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round (45th overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft, and played for two seasons with the Phoenix Suns, averaging 3.3 points per game in 73 regular season games.

After his NBA career, and following a brief spell in the ABA, he moved on to Europe, successively representing Fillattice Imola (Italy), Panionios BC, Aris Thessaloniki and AEK Athens (Greece), Telindus Oostende (Belgium), Köln 99ers (Germany) and Ricoh Manresa[2] (Spain).

Bailey returned to the U.S. after nearly one decade away from the country, signing in 2009 with the Los Angeles Lightning of the International Basketball League.
