Solomon, who has played overseas since 2002, was a standout guard for Clemson from 1998-2001.
Solomon played the past two seasons in Istanbul, Turkey for Fenerbahce Ulker. He averaged 17.8 points per game in the regular season and 20.5 points per game in Euroleague Top 16 play. Solomon was the fourth-leading scorer in all of Euroleague last season.
He played in 2002-03 with Aris Thessaloniki in Greece. In 2003-04, he played for Hapoel Jerusalem in Israel. Solomon played in Turkey in 2004-05, before returning to Israel to play for Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2005-06. While at his last stint in Israel, Solomon played alongside current Raptor player Anthony Parker.
Solomon was a first-team All-ACC selection as a sophomore in 1999-2000, the last Clemson player to earn the honor. As a senior, he was second-team All-ACC. He led the ACC in scoring at 20.9 points per game his sophomore season, and was fourth in the league as a senior at 19.7 per contest.
Solomon finished his career with 1,431 points in three seasons, a figure that ranks 11th among Clemson's all-time scoring leaders. He ranks third in school history in three-point goals with 214, which included back-to-back seasons of at least 90 made from beyond the arc.
He turned pro after his junior season at Clemson and was a second-round choice (#33 overall) of the Memphis Grizzlies. Solomon spent the 2001-02 season in the NBA and averaged 5.2 points per game in 62 appearances with the Grizzlies.
