Glenn "Doc" Rivers

6-4 184 Guard

Missed 28 games with broken hand... Accepted responsibility as on-court leader after being tentative... Streaky shooter who needs work... Missed all 16 three-point shots in regular season, but was 3-for-6 in playoffs... Finally stopped asking people not to call him "Doc," out of respect for Julius Erving... Usually relieved by Spud Web, presenting drastic change in style... Good defensive player, he is also fearless where rebounding is concerned... Born Oct. 13, 1961, in Maywood, Ill... Was thought to have made a mistake when he left Marquette a year early to become 31st overall pick by Hawks in 1983... Made $155,000 last season and completes contract this season at $200,000 with possibility of $10,000 in bonuses.

Relevant Stats:
11.5 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 8.4 apg
