After a college career at the University of Missouri and Southern Illinois University, Hudson was not selected in the NBA draft. Since beginning his professinal career in 1998, he has played for the Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando Magic, and the Minnesota Timberwolves. He has averaged 9.3 points per game throughout his career.
Hudson also has a musical side. "T Hud," Hudson's nickname and stage name, has three rap albums and around 800 songs to his credit. A drum machine usually accompanies him on road trips. "I have my own label ? Nutty Boyz Entertainment ? and I have three artists (that I manage)," the Wolves' hip-hop guard has said in an interview.
Troy Hudson has not received much playing time in the 2005-06 season, however. In part due to injuries and other setbacks, he is currently having a down season, while he still produces music.
