Haislip was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks as the 13th pick of the 2002 NBA draft. During his rookie year Haislip was inserted into the starting line-up for the final nine games of the 2002–03 NBA season. When the playoffs started he was relegated to the bench. He remained a bench player with the Bucks for his first two seasons until being placed on waivers on November 4, 2004. He was signed by the Indiana Pacers during the 2004–05 season in order to fill the team's gap at power forward, due to the 15-game suspension of Jermaine O'Neal.
He started playing for Ülkerspor in the 2005–06 season. In March 2006, he left the team without authorization and returned to the United States due to "family issues", according to a teammate. He was selected to the BSL (Turkish Basketball Super League) All-Star Game and also participated in the Slam Dunk contest, which he won. He signed with Turkish Basketball League powerhouse Efes Pilsen in August 2006.
Haislip returned to the U.S. with Pilsen in October 2006, when the team played a pair of exhibition games against NBA teams. Pilsen played the Denver Nuggets in Denver on October 11, and played the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on October 13. Haislip scored 13 points and added 9 rebounds against the Warriors. On July 13, 2007, Haislip signed with the Spanish ACB club Unicaja Málaga.
In September 2010, he signed with the Spanish powerhouse Caja Laboral. In December 2010, Caja Laboral opened disciplinary proceedings against Haislip because he left the city without permission from the club. He was suspended without pay. The contract was terminated by mutual consent on January 5, 2011.
In March 2012, he signed a two-month contract with Champville SC, and became the highest paid foreigner in the history of the Lebanese Basketball League. Together with his teammate Fadi El Khatib, they won the Lebanese championship for their first time. Champville didn't renew his contract the following year.
