For Marquise Gray, the desire to play professional basketball has faded away. After a successful seven-year overseas career, the 30-year-old decided to retire after last season. His basketball journey landed him in Israel, Turkey, Poland, Mexico, and Japan. He also enjoyed a brief summer league stint with the Detroit Pistons in 2009. But after all that traveling, the former Michigan State player decided to return to his roots. He settled in Flint Township to begin the second phase of life.
