Steve Colter

Chicago Bulls
6-3 175 Guard

Became a Bull after the second round of the 1986 draft when the Trail Blazers traded him for the rights to Larry Krystkowiak (28th pick) and second-round picks in 1987 and 1992... Doesn't look like much... Maybe that's why so many teams passed on him in the 1984 draft and allowed the Blazers to grab him with the No. 33 pick... A good wind would blow him him away... If he turns sideways, you can barely see him... All right, enough of the funny stuff, this toothpick with legs is a solid point guard, Needs work on his shot... Better from three-point range than from in close... But he can run the offense and finished with 113 steals last season, ranking second on team... Born July 24, 1962, in Phoenix... Had a quietly effective four-year career at New Mexico State... Invited to the U.S. Olympic Trials in 1984... It was his rapid development at the point-guard spot that pushed Darnell Valentine to the bench and eventually allowed the Blazers to ship him to the Clippers... A real bargain at $112,500.
