Power forward for the Washington Wizards, Drew Gooden was born on September 24, 1981 in Oakland, California. Gooden is a 6'10", 250 lbs. power forward from the University of Kansas. Gooden declared himself for the draft after his impressive junior year. Out of the University of Kansas, Gooden was selected as the 4th overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2002 NBA Draft.

His most successful season was 2002, where he led the nation in rebounding and was named NABC national player of the year. The Jayhawks went 33-4, including 16-0 in Big 12 Conference play to win KU its first conference championship since 1998. The Jayhawks also advanced to their first Final Four in the 2002 NCAA Tournament since 1993; however, they lost to the eventual national champion Maryland Terrapins in the semifinal. For being named NABC player of the year for 2002, Gooden's jersey was retired in 2003, at halftime of a KU home game with Kansas State in what would have been his senior year had he not foregone his senior year for the NBA.

As a professional, Gooden has established himself as a solid power forward, consistently bringing down double digit numbers in points and rebounds. He is also considered a good guy on and off the court, named one of the "Good Guys in Sports" by The Sporting News.

On February 26, 2014, Gooden signed a 10-day contract with the Washington Wizards. On March 8, 2014, he signed a second 10-day contract with the Wizards. On March 18, 2014, he signed with the Wizards for the rest of the season.

On July 18, 2014, Gooden re-signed with the Wizards. In the team's season opener on October 29, 2014 against the Miami Heat, Gooden was named the starting power forward in what was his first of just seven starts for the seasons. He subsequently scored a season-high 18 points and did not top that mark for the rest of the season.

On July 13, 2015, he again re-signed with Washington
