Jermareo Davidson is a professional basketball player from the USA and plays as a power forward. Davidson attended the Joseph Wheeler High school and helped his team win back-to-back state titles. He held the school record for total rebounds and blocks.
Davidson went on to the University of Alabama and in his junior year, put his name in for the NBA Draft to see where he stood. After finding his status, he pulled his name out of the draft and went back to college for his final year. Davidson lost his girlfriend Nicole Murphy to a car accident in his senior year at the University of Alabama. The couple was on their way to meet Davidson’s brother, Dewayne Watkins in the hospital. Watkins had suffered severe gunshot wounds. Davidson lost control of the car and although he was ejected from it during the accident, Nicole was not so lucky. Tragedy was doubled for Davidson as he lost his brother to the gunshot injury a month later.
Davidson appeared in the 2007 NBA draft and was picked by the Golden State Warriors at 36th overall. The very same day, he was traded out to the Charlotte Bobcats along with Jason Richardson in exchange for Brandan Wright, the 8th pick from the Draft.
Davidson was named to the NBA 2007 Summer League All-Pro Second Team where he was joined by his Bobcat teammate Jared Dudley.
In 2007, the Charlotte Bobcats offered Davidson a new 2-year contract however, just a year later, he was released to become a free agent. In January 2009, Davidson initially signed a 10-day contract with the Golden State Warriors but after the Warriors waived off DeMarcus Nelson, there was space for Davidson in the roster.
Davidson then played for the Idaho Stampede in the NBA D-League and was one of the more prominent players with a 16.1 points per game average as well as 10.8 rebounds, all in just 15 games.
