Adonal Foyle
Adonal Foyle (6'10''-F-75, college: Colgate) has decided to end his NBA playing career after 13 years.

The 35-year-old center chose to retire after a right-knee injury often prevented him from practicing with the Magic during the 2009-10 season.

'It just never really quite got back to where I could feel like I could keep pushing it and do what I wanted to,' Foyle told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday night. 'Basically, I never really got back to that place where I felt like I could make a contribution. My thing has always been that the game has really been too good to me to really be around it if I can't give anything to it.'

Foyle appeared in 733 regular-season games during his career, which he spent with the Golden State Warriors, the Magic and the Memphis Grizzlies. He averaged 4.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.

Because of his retirement, Foyle said he likely will resign his position as first vice president of the National Basketball Players Association within the next few days.

The Magic's director of player development position is vacant, and Foyle could be an ideal fit for the job.

But aside from continuing his humanitarian work he founded the nonprofit Kerosene Lamp Foundation in 2005 to help children Foyle said he hasn't considered what he'll do next.

He said, 'Right now, I just want to finish this part of my life and then really try to figure out how to journey to the next spot.'
