Curtis Alan Borchardt (born September 13, 1980) is an American former professional basketball player. He is a 7 ft 0 in (2.13 m) tall center.
Borchardt played high school basketball in Sammamish, Washington (then Redmond), for Eastlake High School. He then attended Stanford University, where he was an honorable mention All-American as a junior in 2002.
Borchardt was selected 18th overall in the first round by the Orlando Magic in the 2002 NBA Draft but was traded to the Utah Jazz. Injury-prone in college, this continued as he sat out his rookie season. He made his Jazz debut in the 2003-04 campaign. He was dealt to the Boston Celtics as part of the largest trade in NBA history - a 13-player, 5-team deal on August 2, 2005. He was not included on Boston's roster in 2005-06 but played with them in the preseason, scoring seven points in seven games.
He moved to the Spanish League club Granada in December 2005. In 2009, he joined the French League club ASVEL.
In 2012, Borchardt signed with Blancos de Rueda Valladolid of Liga ACB.
Awards and achievements:
His wife, Susan King Borchardt, also played college basketball at Stanford University and later played professionally for the Minnesota Lynx in the WNBA.
