With the Vietnam Basketball Association (VBA) making its way into its 2018 preseason at the end of May, the Ho Chi Minh City Wings have announced via Facebook that the team has signed former NBA development league (NBA G-League) player Quinton Doggett.
The 6’9″ American forward played three seasons of NCAA Division I basketball at Southern University, where he averaged 13 points, eight rebounds, and two blocks per game during his senior year before going overseas to play for Team FOG Næstved in Denmark. After his 18 game stint in the Danish ranks, Doggett continued his overseas career in Portugal, playing for Galitos for one season in 2013-2014.
With Galitos missing the playoffs during his one season stay with the team, Doggett traveled back to the United States later that same year and was drafted by the Idaho Stampede with the 36th overall pick in the second round of the then NBA D-League draft.
Quinton Doggett appeared in eight games in the developmental league, where he averaged 7.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game, while shooting 52 percent from the field. After his short stay in the D-League, Doggett once again found himself going overseas, playing at various clubs which include Colegio Inmaculada in Peru, Dynamo Kyiv in Ukraine, Montevideo Basketball Club in Uruguay, Sebaco and Bufalos de Managua in Nicaragua, Qatar Sports Club Doha in Qatar, Indios de Mayaguez in Puerto Rico, and just finishing his stint with Al-Ahli in Bahrain.
With six years of experience as a pro playing around the world, City Wings rookie Corey Cilia, second-year player Henry Nguyen, along with a bevy of local players should have a lot to learn from Quinton Doggett once he joins the team in Vietnam’s largest city.
