Stone currently plays professional basketball for the Iraeli Premier League. 

He played college basketball at the University of Missouri and Southeast Missouri State University.

The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree: Stone's father James Bradley played basketball at the University of Memphis and was drafted to the NBA in 1979 by the Atlanta Hawks. 

His mother Sharon Stone shared how proud she is of her son's success with WMC Action News 5's Jerica Phillips.
