Scott Hastings

6-10 235 Center

Became more of a thug than anything else... Dragged down Celtics' Danny Ainge in playoff game and got kicked several times for his trouble... Was ejected in Game 5 after flagrantly fouling Greg Kite... Obviously knows roughstuff is only way he can stay in NBA, where he earned $180,000 last season... Has been a pro for four season and has yet to average more than 4.5 ppg... Born June 3, 1960, in Independence, Kan.... Knicks chose him 29th overall in 1982, out of Arkansas... Went to Hawks along with $600,000 for guard Rory Sparrow in February 1983... He's cheap insurance against injuries to Tree Rollins and Kevin Willis, but his cheap shots have to stop.

Relevant stats:
3.4 ppg, 2 rpg, 40.9 FG%
