Keith Adam Van Horn (born in Fullerton, Californiamarker) is a retired Americanmarker basketball player. Van Horn graduated from Diamond Bar High School and played for the University of Utahmarker. In his professional career, he played for the New Jersey Nets, the Philadelphia 76ers, the New York Knicks, the Milwaukee Bucks and the Dallas Mavericks.

College career

Among Van Horn's collegiate accomplishments is being the first player in the Western Athletic Conference to be named Player of the Year three times (1995, '96, '97), being the second player in WAC history to make first-team all-WAC four years, and being the leading career scorer in Utah and WAC history with 2,542 points. In February 2008, he was among 16 players named to the University of Utah's "All-Century" basketball team.

Professional career

Van Horn was drafted as the second overall pick in 1997 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, however his rights were immediately traded to the New Jersey Nets along with Michael Cage, Lucious Harris and Don MacLean in exchange for the draft rights to Tim Thomas and Anthony Parker, and player contracts of Jim Jackson and Eric Montross. His best season as a pro came in his 2nd year in the league, when he put up a career high 21.8 scoring average as well as 8.5 rebounds per game. He was an important part of the New Jersey team that won the Eastern Conference championships, but eventually swept by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2002 NBA Finals.

On August 6, 2002 Van Horn was sent to his original team, 76ers, along with Todd MacCulloch for center Dikembe Mutombo. After spending one year with Sixers, he was traded to the New York Knicks in a four-team deal that also included the Atlanta Hawks and the Minnesota Timberwolves. His stint with Knicks was short, on February 16, 2004, he was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-team trade.

In order to make room for the signing of free-agent-to-be Michael Redd in the coming offseason, on February 24, 2005 Bucks unloaded Van Horn's contract to the Dallas Mavericks for expiring contracts of Alan Henderson, Calvin Booth and cash. He spent one and a half season with the Mavericks and failed to win the finals for the second time in his career, this time lost to the Miami Heat 4-2 in 2006 NBA Finals.Following that season, he took a year off, in order to spend time with his family. Although he had shown no intentions of coming back, after 1.5 years from his unofficial retirement, on February 19, 2008 Van Horn signed a three-year deal (only first year guaranteed) with the Mavericks only to complete a blockbuster trade that sent Jason Kidd from New Jersey Nets to Mavericks. In the original deal, Devean George was included, however he vetoed the deal not to lose his Bird rights. Since the Mavs had not renounced his rights and he had not signed the official retirement papers yet, Van Horn was able to be included in the deal instead of George after signing a contract. That contract would earn him 4.3 million for less than half a season of work. As expected, Van Horn didn't play at all for the Nets. He was waived by the Nets on October 23, 2008.
