Renaldo Major ● 6 feet, 6 inches ● 210 pounds ● Guard/ForwardRenaldo Major is a rare five-year NBA D-League veteran. One of the most consistent players over the last half decade, Major was named All-NBA D-League Honorable Mention in 2012. In his five years in the NBA D-League, four of which came with Dakota and one last year with Bakersfield, Major never averaged less than 12 points per game or shot worse than 50 percent from the field. The 6-foot-6 forward is also an elite defender, having won NBA D-League Defensive Player of the Year in 2006-07. His leadership and maturity immediately becomes an asset on any team that he suits up for.
After a strong 2006-07 campaign that also saw him get a NBA Call-Up with Golden State and win a NBA D-League title with Dakota, Major had to sit out the entire 2007-08 basketball season with a heart condition. During a physical with the Denver Nuggets, the team’s physicians found a heart murmur and further tests revealed a loose valve in his heart. Major returned to playing for the 2009-10 season, but he has not been back to the NBA since.
Prior to the NBA D-League, Major starred at Fresno State for two years and South Plains College before that. He also had stints in the CBA and the USBL. He is an Illinois native.
