Elliot Lamonte Perry is a retired American professional basketball player. The 6'0" point guard from Memphis State University, was selected with the tenth pick of the second round by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 1991 NBA Draft. He played ten games in 1991-92 for the Clippers before being waived and subsequently signed for the rest of the season by the Charlotte Hornets. He then moved on to Continental Basketball Association for two years before returning to the NBA, most notably with the Phoenix Suns where in 1994-95 he was voted runner-up as the NBA's Most Improved Player. He rounded out his NBA career in 2002 with his hometown Memphis Grizzlies for whom he played just two games after signing a 10 day contract. He scored 11 points in the 2 games. Perry is also known as "Socks" because of the high long socks he wore during his college and NBA career. A quick and slashing player in college, his ability to alter his shot in mid-air to draw a foul from his defender made him very dangerous to defend. Lack of quality supporting players forced Perry to carry the U of M team on his skill.
