He’s baaaaaaaaackkkkkkk! Quincy Douby (Brooklyn, NY) has played in several professional leagues including the NBA, the NBDL, and the Chinese Basketball Association. If he wanted to stay in China, no one could blame him because in his three seasons there he had the following scoring averages; 32.0, 31.6, and 30.9 points per game! Throw in the fact that he set a league record with 75 points in one game and it’s easy to see why he might have been even more legendary in China than at the RAC.
However, I’m sure a shot to return to New York was something he simply couldn’t pass up. Starting in his first appearance with Westchester, the Knicks D-league affiliate, Douby scored 6 points with 2 steals, 2 assists, and a rebound. The Westchester Knicks beat Canton for their 3rd straight win. Hopefully we’ll see enough magic for a return to Madison Square Garden where Douby was famously triple teamed by Villanova in the 2006 Big East tournament.
To make room, the Knicks previously let go Dane Miller who had been drafted by the NBDL earlier this year. Miller has not played this season and remains a free agent.
The other former Rutgers swingman taken in this year’s D-league draft, J.J. Moore, plays for the Long Island Nets. In two games this week he has 10 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals.
Kadeem Jack is averaging 7.3 points and 2.5 rebounds per game for the Reno Bighorns. Last Thursday he chipped in 12 points and 6 rebounds but Reno lost to the Spurs anyway.
We at On The Banks will do our best to update Scarlet Knights in other professional basketball leagues around the world as well. The primary focus is on players who finished their careers at RU.

Knights in the pros flashback ... November 18, 1969.
Bob Greacen, the first Rutgers player to appear in the NBA, had the first double digit game of his career with 14 points at the sport’s highest level. In the game, the visiting Bucks fell against the San Francisco Warriors at the Cow Palace. The Merchantville, NJ native would play one more season in the NBA, winning an NBA title as a Buck in 1971.
