BIOGRAPHY: Giles had a checkered college career that began full of promise when he signed a letter of intent to play at Miami. But Hurricanes coach Perry Clark was fired, Giles enrolled at Kansas in 2004 and played sparingly over two seasons that featured a slew of personal problems. After his freshman season, he was reportedly part of a group involved in a fight near campus that resulted in the stabbing of three people, including one of his teammates. Before his junior season began at Kansas, Giles allegedly dragged a former girlfriend into a hallway and hit her in the head. He admitted to police that he dragged her across the floor, but denied hitting her. Soon after the incident surfaced, Kansas coach Bill Self dismissed Giles from the team, also citing his poor academic work. Giles also owed $4,000 in child support payments to the mother of his one-year-old son. After sitting out a season, Giles re-surfaced at Oregon State, originally joining without a scholarship. He lasted only 10 games with the Beavers, fouling out six times and logging an average of only 18.1 minutes. Giles was dismissed from the team on Jan. 21 after a series of missed practices and meetings in a season in which Oregon State went 0-18 in Pac-10 play. Despite all of his personal problems, Giles has an NBA body and a 7-foot-4 wingspan. Primarily a shot blocker, Giles has some offensive ability as well, but hasn't been on the court much to showcase it. Since being kicked out of Oregon State, Giles has been working with former NBA player Jerome Kersey to prepare for the draft. Given Giles' tumultuous history, though, it is hard to envision an NBA team even willing to use a second-round pick on him.
