Chris Ray Wilcox (born September 3 1982 in Raleigh, North Carolina) is an NBA player with the Seattle SuperSonics. He previously played basketball for the Los Angeles Clippers and University of Maryland, College Park. He attended Whiteville High School in Whiteville, North Carolina, where he led the basketball team to the 2A State Championship, which they won in 1999. He then transferred to Enloe High School in Raleigh. In his four seasons in the NBA, Wilcox is averaging 7.4 points and 4.3 rebounds. His best season was in 2005-2006 split with the Clippers and Sonics when he averaged 8.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.
On the morning of June 27, 2005, Wilcox was stopped by police in Columbia, Maryland, when he was struggling to stay in his lane on southbound U.S. Highway 29. Wilcox passed a sobriety test, but he then admitted that he had a gun in his car, and he was detained. On August 9, in nearby Ellicott City, Howard County police were found to have illegally detained Wilcox, and the gun charges were dropped.
Wilcox was traded on February 14, 2006, to the Seattle Sonics in exchange for Vladimir Radmanovic.
On April 4, 2006, Wilcox recorded a career-high 24 rebounds in a win over the Houston Rockets. Wilcox's rebound total was the most by a Sonic player since Jack Sikma grabbed 25 at Utah on February 10, 1983.
One of Maryland's most athletic and most exciting players, Chris loves to dunk and block shots, and became a fan favorite at Cole Field House during his freshman campaign. The sophomore talent blended with the Terps' deep interior players as a team player and helped the Terps to their first national championship in school history.
