Joey Joseph Graham (born June 11, 1982 in Wilmington, Delaware) is a professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association. He was selected 16th overall in the 2005 NBA Draft by the Toronto Raptors, after his senior year at Oklahoma State University. Much anticipation is heaped upon him as he was chosen with one of the two first round picks acquired from the much maligned Vince Carter who was traded to the New Jersey Nets during the 2004-2005 season. Joey started his rookie season as a Raptors starter, playing as small forward and was given difficult tasks such as guarding much more experienced players such as Carter, Antawn Jamison, Tayshaun Prince, and LeBron James. After five games of mediocre performance, he was moved out of the starting lineup and replaced by the 5-year Raptors veteran, Morris Peterson. For his entire rookie season, Graham averaged 6.5 points per game.
