Darrell Antwonne Arthur (born March 25, 1988) is 6'9", 230 lb (100 kg) American professional basketball player for the Memphis Grizzlies of the NBA. He plays the power forward and small forward positions. Arthur played for the University of Kansas in college for two seasons, including the 2007–2008 national championship team. Arthur was originally drafted by the New Orleans Hornets in 2008 but after two trades ended up with the Memphis Grizzlies, with whom he signed on July 8, 2008.[1]


High school career

In high school he guided South Oak Cliff High School to back-to-back Texas 4A state titles in 2005 and 2006 and was the tournament's MVP both years. However, it was later determined that the school illegally changed player's grades to keep them eligible and the titles have since been forfeited.[2]

Arthur was a McDonald's All-American in 2006.

College career

Arthur's uniform number in college was 00, making him the first Jayhawk to wear that number since Greg Ostertag. Following his freshman season (2006–07), he was named to the Big 12 All-Freshman team.

Arthur was the starting power forward on the 2008 National Championship team. He also was a member of the All Big 12 first team.

Professional career

Arthur was selected by the New Orleans Hornets as the 27th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, but was promptly traded to the Portland Trail Blazers for cash. The Trail Blazers then traded Arthur to the Houston Rockets for draft rights to 25th overall pick Nicolas Batum. Soon afterwards, the Rockets traded Arthur to the Memphis Grizzlies for draft rights to the 28th overall pick Donté Greene.[3]

On September 3, 2008, Arthur and fellow former Kansas Jayhawks teammate Mario Chalmers were excused from NBA's Rookie Training Camp following a marijuana-related incident.[4] Police responding to their hotel room following a fire alarm at 2:00 a.m. claimed that the room smelled strongly of marijuana but none was found and no charges were filed. Fellow NBA rookie Michael Beasley was also reported to have been in the room at the time, but was not asked to leave camp.[5][6] Beasley was later fined $50,000 for his involvement in the incident[7] Arthur later released a statement denying any involvement with marijuana.[8] Arthur was later fined $20,000 by the league for missing the rookie camp, but was not fined or suspended for any drug-related violations.[9]


Arthur is the first cousin[10] of fellow NBA player Quinton Ross.[11]
