Kevin Willis

7-0 245 Forward-Center

Thought to be a gamble when Hawks made him 11th pick overall in 1984, but Michigan State product is developing rapidly... Third-leading Hawk scorer last season, he was second to Dominique Wilkins in playoff... Underutilized against Boston... Terrorized Larry Bird, but didn't see the ball consistently enough for the mismatch to change the series' outcome... Born Sept. 6, 1962, in Los Angeles... Became more and more vocal as season went along and projects as possible team leader... Needs to learn to pass ball when he's double-teamed instead of forcing shots... Will make $250,000 this season.

Relevant Stats:
10.8 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 0.55 apg
