Obie Trotter used to play for Szolnoki Olaj for two seasons before the club joined ABA League (2010 - 12) and was the key member of the team in 2011/12 season, when they achieved the greatest success in club's history and qualified for the EuroChallenge Final Four Tournament, which they have organized.

Back then, he was averaging 17.3 points, 4.5 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. Excellent performances earned him a lot of attention from the clubs throughout the Europe and in the summer of 2011 he received Hungarian citizenship. Since then is a member of their national team, for which he played also in the Qulifying Round for EuroBasket 2013. The same year he moved to Russian team Nizhny Novgorod, while he started this one in Triumph. He now returned to Szolnok and signed the deal until the end of 2014/15 season with the Hungarians.

Trotter is the third reinforcement for Szolnoki Olaj during this season, after they previously signed with Justin Holiday and Strahinja Milošević. This is an important addition to the team, which is trying their best to exit the danger zone at the bottom of ABA League table, where they are located after 17 rounds.
