Mike Mcgee

6-5 190 Guard

Became a Hawk on draft day, when Lakers traded him and rights to first-rounder Billy Thompson and second-rounder Ron Kellogg... Was jerked in and out of the Laker starting lineup throughout five-year stay in LA... At times, you wonder why he's not in the CBA... Shooting is his forte, but he slumped to .463 last season... Born July 29, 1959, in Tyler, Tex., the home of football star Earl Campbell... Grew up in Omaha, Neb.... A virtual scoring machine during his days at Michigan State, where he played one season with Magic Johnson... Lakers made him No. 19 pick overall in 1981 and had big plans for him, but he never got more than brief chances to play... Maybe things will be different in Atlanta.
