This belongs in the phantom nba career list.

Here is the Piston all-time roster:

The claim for Dew gets even worse than what you posted.
Check this from Toledo Scott h.s.' website:

Then, there was Jimmy Dew, who trained as an educator; but also completed a successful career with the Detroit Pistons. At nearly seven feet, his presence as principal calmed troubled waters that had arisen. Avey Dixon, a 1964 graduate and teacher at Scott until 2007, says that, "he re-instituted home visits to draw in parents, began Visiting Day for incoming students, obtained college scholarship money from Fifty Men of Toledo and created a new job training program. Scott also became the first high school in the city to have its own radio station, WAMP."
