Joe Alexander SF NO Nov 30 '12
Joe Alexander has signed in China with Liaoning.
Remember Alexander? He was picked eighth overall by the Bucks in 2008, ahead of Brook Lopez, Roy Hibbert, JaVale McGee, Serge Ibaka, Ryan Anderson and Nicolas Batum, among others. Needless to say, that pick didn't exactly work out.

Joe Alexander's one-year contract with the Russian team Krasyne Kaylya Samara will not include an out clause to return to the NBA this season.
Alexander has largely been a bust since being selected eighth overall in the 2008 draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. He'll likely attempt to return to the NBA once the labor dispute is resolved, but he's a fringe player who may or may not find his way back into the league. Similarly to Gerald Green, Alexander's athleticism hasn't translated into his finding success.
