Johnny Rhodes last seen in ABA

Johnny Rhodes (1992-96) was last seen playing for the ABA's Maryland Nighthawks in 2004-05.

It looks like he played for the CBA's Yakima Sun Kings in 2001. And he was a Harlem Globetrotter for parts of 1999-2000. I've seen evidence from secondary sources that he has played all over the world in the past few years, for CBA, USBL, and ABA teams in the US, and internationally in Japan, Syria, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and Italy.

Johnny is hard to track down. He may have gone by "John Rhodes" at some of his international stops. Also complicating the search, there is a different John Rhodes who was a former player and is a current assistant coach at Ohio University.
