The 6 ft 11 in (2.11 m), 265 lb (120 kg; 18.9 st) center was selected out of the University of Kentucky by the Charlotte Hornets with the 19th overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft, after withdrawing his name from the previous draft.

In the early morning hours of June 23, 2001, Magloire's half-brother, 19-year-old Justin Sheppard, was shot and killed on the footbridge that spans the ravine around Rosedale Valley Road between Bloor Street East and Glen Road near Sherbourne subway station in Toronto. Like Magloire, Sheppard was a promising basketball talent at Eastern Commerce, and was supposed to begin a scholarship at a Maryland prep school that fall. Magloire helped post a CAD$50,000 reward, but to date, there have been no arrests and the killing remains unsolved.
