Coach Chuck Daly

Detroit Pistons

Turned down contract offer early last season during feud with GM Jack McCloskey, then signed two-year agreement after team was eliminated from playoffs... Will get about $200,000 per season... Still has plenty of cash left over from his settlement after he was fired during first year of contract with Ted Stepien's Cavaliers... Wanted to return to Philadelphia as head coach, but Pistons wouldn't let him... "Daddy Rich" is among best dressers as coach... Also does color work for several TV outlets... Born July 20, 1930, in St. Mary's Pa.... Was given much credit for helping Billy Cunningham make transition from playing to coaching 76ers while an assistant... Graduated from Bloomsburg St. (Pa.) College, where he averaged 13.1 ppg over two seasons... Had eight-year collegiate coaching record of 151-62... Didn't get his first head-coaching job in pros until age 51... Has 150-137 regular-season record after a 46-36 finish in 1985-86.

Earl Cureton

Detroit Pistons
6-9 215 Forward-Center

Outstanding in exhibition games during the summer of '85, leading some to believe he was about to blossom last season... He didn't... Since he played the most he ever did, his rebounding total was a career high, but he wasn't consistent enough to make the Pistons stronger off the boards... Still thinks he's better than he is... Will make $235,000 on the last season of his contract... Born Sept. 3, 1957, in Detroit... Was 58th player chosen in 1979, going to the 76ers out of the University of Detroit... Journeyman player who is capable of decent part-time production... Able to help a team if it doesn't need to rely on him heavily.

Relevant Stats:
8.6 ppg, 50.5 FG%, 6.3 rpg

Chuck Nevitt

Detroit Pistons
7-5 225 Center

Signed as free agent past the midway point of last season and stayed around, but didn't do much to earn his keep... Born June 13, 1959, in Cortex, Col.... Was raised in Marietta, Ga.... His tallest-player-in-the-league status was forfeited to 7-7 Manute Bol of the Bullets last season... Still hasn't grown into his body... One wonders why teams keep trying to make a player out of him... It's true that you can't coach height, but you can't coach coordination, either... A swell guy, but there have to be a hundred players more deserving of an NBA chance... No. 63 pick overall by Houston in 1982... Was a bench-sitter at North Carolina State and is a bench-sitter in the pros... Made approximately $120,000 last season.

Relevant Stats:
1.7 ppg, 34.9 FG%, 1.1 rpg

Tony Campbell

Detroit Pistons
6-7 210 Forward

Showed some of the ability that prompted Pistons to draft him 20th overall in 1984, out of Ohio State... Had high game of 20 points last season... Figures to develop into good shooter if given more playing time... Born May 7, 1962, in Teaneck, N.J.... Gets $165,000 this season, the last on his contract... Lack of size continues to hurt him, because it means he can't play in the power slot... Plays behind Kelly Tripucka at small forward and can't handle the ball well enough to become a big guard... Might do better elsewhere, where he'd get a chance to prove whether he can play.

Relevant Stats:
7.9 ppg, 48.4 FG%, 2.87 rpg

Rick Mahorn

Detroit Pistons
6-10 250 Center-Forward

Second straight failure for the Pistons in search for power forward... Acquired from Bullets for first failure, Dan Roundfield, and Mike Gibson prior to last season, he began 1985-86 as starter but lasted only 12 games in that capacity... Enforcer of the first degree... Pistons wanted him to hit the boards as well as opponents, but he averaged only 5.2 rpg... Prince off the court and the devil personified on it, where he asks no quarter and gives none... Somewhere along the line he lost what seems to be a decent shooting touch... Needs to put his mind to rebounding more if he is to stay around the NBA... Will make $506,000 this season... Bullets made him 35th pick overall, out of Hampton Institute in 1980... Was a better football player prospect than a basketball prospect in high school... Born Sept. 21, 1958, in Hartford, Conn.

Relevant Stats:
4.9 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 45.5 FG%

Vinnie Johnson

Detroit Pistons
6-2 200 Guard

Maybe he read his own press clippings from 1984-86 playoffs... Launched too many long-range rockets, whether or not he had the hot hand... Was tried as a starter for a dozen games, but didn't the part... Best suited for reserve duty, because his streak-shooting ability still confounds opponents, but he has to get his game back under control... Gets a dollar raise to $491,667 this season... Born Sept. 1, 1956, in Brooklyn, N.Y.... Drafted No. 7 by Seattle in 1979... Average of 13.9 ppg was second best of career... Among the strongest of guards, he can't be moved by opponents, but he can be posted up... Baylor product is one of eight children... Needs to pull the reins on his game... Acquired from Sonics for Greg Kelser in November 1981,

Relevant Stats:
13.9 ppg, 46.7 FG%, 3.79 apg

Additional Info: Vinnie's the older brother of former Spurs player and current Dallas Mavericks coach Avery Johnson.

Joe Dumars

Detroit Pistons
6-2 190 Guard

"He's legit," said Chuck Daly, and no one can doubt that after this guy's performance last season... Started 45 games and amassed 390 assists, which cut into Isiah Thomas' total... Good shooter who handles pressure well... Drafted 18th overall by Pistons in 1985... Born May5, 1963, in Shreveport, La.... Brother David plays for USFL Birmingham Stallions... Gives Pistons insurance should Thomas go down, but also presents problems for them since he's not much bigger than Isiah, making Detroit backcourt vulnerable to post-up moves by bigger opponents... Good free-throw shooter who seems to know what should be done and when... As he matures, he should develop into an outstanding pro and prove to be one of the steals in last year's draft... Pistons will pay him only $120,000 this season.

Relevant Stats:
9.4 ppg, 48.1 FG%, 4.76 apg

John Long

Detroit Pistons
6-5 200 Guard

Continued his fall from favor, losing his starting spot to Joe Dumars... Did sign a new contract that paid him $350,000 after some long-term bickering... Born Aug. 28, 1956, in Romulus, Mich.... Attended University of Detroit... Pistons made him 29th player chosen in 1978... Played for Dick Vitale, who was his college coach before moving to the Pistons... Broke Dave DeBusschere's scoring record at Detroit... One of the game's better free-throw shooters... Maddeningly accurate set shot can torture opponents, but he seems to lack the mobility to succeed in Pistons' fast-break approach... Didn't get much of a chance to wipe out image as poor pressure player.

Relevant Stats:
10.0 ppg, 48.2 FG%, 85.6 FT%

Monday, August 22, 2005

Kelly Tripucka

Detroit Pistons
6-6 215 Forward

Averaged 20 or more ppg for fourth time in five pro seasons... Last year was his first injury free campaign since he was a rookie in 1981-82... Pistons drafted him 12th overall in 1980 out of Notre Dame... Will earn $900,000 again this season... Born Feb. 16, 1959, in Bloomingfield, N.J.... Son of former Notre Dame quarterback Frank... Still called selfish because his defense isn't great and he's not exactly a tenacious rebounder... But he puts fannies in the seats, scores well and is a great free-throw shooter... For a guy who supposedly doesn't jump worth a darn, he was an awfully good high jumper in high school, where his best was 6-6... Also threw the javelin 211 feet.

Relevant Stats:
20.0 ppg, 49.8 FG%, 85.6 FT%

Bill Laimbeer

Detroit Pistons
6-11 250 Center

Battled for rebounding crown all season and thought he had it locked up when his season ended the day before Charles Barkley's did... Barkley needed a bundle of rebounds to pass him and, on last day of season, Laimbeer received call from Pistons' PR man telling him that the 76ers-Bullets game had gone three OTs and Barkley had edged him... Sank into instant depression... When he was told it was just a joke, he didn't laugh... Opponents don't laugh when they play him, either... The next time his feet leave the floor will be the first time, but he knows all about positioning, so he won rebounding title with 13.1 average... Still has no inside game on offense, but no one has found a way to stop his 18-foot jumpers from falling with incredible regularity... One of league's least-popular players because of his penchant for acting his way into drawing offensive fouls... All-around ability can't be questioned... will earn $630,000 this season... Drafted No. 65 overall by Cavs in 1979, out of Notre Dame... Played one season in Italy... Born May 19, 1957, in Boston... Acquired from Cleveland with Kenny Carr for Phil Hubbard, Paul Mokeski and two second-round picks in February 1982.

Relevant Stats:
16.6 ppg, 49.2 FG%, 13.1 rpg

Kent Benson

Detroit Pistons
6-10 245 Center-Forward

A mediocre talent and that's all he'll ever be... Started 51 of 72 games at forward after Chuck Daly decided that Rick Mahorn couldn't handle first-team duties... Field-goal shooting fell below his career norm, but he did rebound a bit better then in 1984-85... Still a defensive liability whose only real worth is offense... If his shooting is off, he should be given a seat on the bench... Pistons need him to rebound more, but it's obvious that he'll never do that... Drafted No. 1 overall by Bucks in 1977, out of Indiana... Born Dec. 27, 1954, in New Castle, Ind.... Begins last season on contract which will pay him $350,000 this time around... Acquired by Pistons from Bucks with first-round pick for Bob Lanier in February 1980.

Relevant Stats:
6.5 ppg, 48.4 FG%, 5.22 rpg

Isiah Thomas

Detroit Pistons
6-1 180 Guard

Developed internal bleeding problem during playoffs, making observers wonder if his health is deteriorating... Illness didn't affect his performance in postseason as he tried to do what he always tries to do when his team is struggling -- to much... Shot too much against Hawks, allowing his passing game to suffer... Assist total fell from NBA-record 1,123 in 1984-85 to 830, but his shooting improved from .458 to .488... Underwent postseason surgery on thumb... Management was willing to deal him to a quality center... Coach Chuck Daly wanted none of that talk... Fourth year on 12-season deal will pay him $750,000... Born April 30, 1961, in Chicago... Youngest of nine children was married last summer... Drafted No. 2 overall by Pistons in 1982, after he left Indiana with a year of eligibility remaining... Won second All-star game MVP award last season.

Coach Lenny Wilkens

Cleveland Cavaliers

Named as George Karl's replacement in early July... Served one year as Seattle Supersonics' VP-GM after 11 seasons as their head coach... Became increasingly aloof from players... Some feel his hiring in Cleveland is another example of the recycling syndrome, whereby teams are afraid to give younger men with fresher ideas a chance, turning instead to veterans who may have become stultified... Born Oct. 28 1937, in Brooklyn, NY... Nine-time All-star as a player after outstanding career at Providence College... Wilkens played eight seasons with the St. Louis Hawks and two each with the Portland Trail Blazers and the Cavaliers... Responsible for trading Dennis Johnson to the Phoenix Suns after labelling him "a cancer"... One of only nine men to have coached 1,000 NBA games (1,044), he has a 553-491 record and coached Seattle to the 1978-79 NBA title... Needs five wins to pass Al Attles of Golden State Warriors as seventh most successful coach ever.

Dirk Minniefield

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-3 180 Guard

Mavs drafted him No. 33 overall in 1983, out of Kentucky, Nets secured his draft rights and signed him, then cut this father of four prior to 1983-84 season... Played two season in CBA before landing roster spot with Cavs... Played 76 games and started two... Had game high of 20 points... Born Jan. 17, 1961, in Lexington, Ky.... Kentucky's Mr. Basketball in 1979... Co-MVP for Wildcats in each of his last three collegiate seasons... Will bounce around the league for a few years because of reasonable skills as a passer and scorer... Earned $75,000 last season.

Eddie Johnson

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-2 185 Guard

Obtained from Hawks for Johnny Davis during last season... Used primarily as reserve, he averaged approximately 20 minutes per game... Career on wane... Shooting from field (.457) and free-throw line (.723) plus scoring output (10 ppg) last season were all well below career norms... Brought even more chaos to an already wild backcourt corps of World B. Free and John Bagley... Has manic-depressive problem under control, but can't control passage of time, which is robbing him of his quickness and shooting ability... Scored 20 points in 1980 All-Star game... Born Feb. 24 1955, in Ocala, Fla.... Chosen No. 49 overall by Hawks in 1977... Was teammate of Spurs' Mike Mitchell in Auburn... Brother of Bullets' Frank Johnson.

Mark West

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-10 225 Center

Just sort of hangs around, not doing much except taking up space on the bench or, less frequently, the floor... Improved career free-throw accuracy, but still shot only .524 from line... Started 26 games and averaged only 17.5 minutes... Could fall by wayside this season, after making $150,000 in 1985-86... Mavericks picked him No. 30 overall in 1983, out of Old Dominion... Born Nov. 5, 1960, in Ft. Campbell, Ky.... Grew up in Petersburg, Va., Moses Malones's original stomping grounds... Size and strength could keep him in league, but he'll have to score more than 4.2 ppg.

Edgar Jones

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-10 225 Forward

"EJ," the DJ, the incredible talking machine... He'll score on you, then talk you down and on his face there's never a frown... Decided the best way to get a reputation after spending five mediocre seasons in the NBA was to become his own PR man, a la World B. Free... So he issued outlandish, sometimes unfathomable quotes and had the time of his life... Had he not missed 29 games with injuries, his output would have been better... Never as confident as he was last season... Born June 17, 1956, in Ft. Rucker, Ala.... Grew up in Newark, N.J.... Bucks drafted him No. 31 overall in 1979, out of Nevada-Reno... Cavs got him from Spurs for Jeff Cook in December 1984... Scored a point every 1.97 minutes... Earned $235,000 last season.

Earned $300,000 on contract he won before last season after becoming free agent... Observers no longer ridicule his selection as No. 12 overall in 1982... Born April 30, 1960, in Bridgeport Conn.... Most onlookers felt he made big mistake by leaving Boston College and entering draft after junior season... Scores in streaks... His lack of height works against him.

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-8 205 Forward

May have turned out to be the most significant player for Cleveland in his absence... No one filled in adequately at his small-forward spot after he went down with knee injury 23 games into season... Made $225,000 last season, his option year, and then became franchise agent... Physical condition hurt his bargaining power... Was most consistent Cavs in previous seasons... Had prior serious knee injury while at Michigan, robbing him much of his prior mobility...197 U.S. Olympian... Pistons chose him No. 15 overall in 1979, after he had left college a year early... Born Dec. 13, 1956, in Canton, Ohio... Acquired from Pistons with Paul Mokeski and two draft picks for Kenny Carr and Bill Laimbeer in February 1982.

Ben Poquette

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-9 235 Forward

Gentle Ben isn't so gentle... Deserves better fate than his career has wrought -- one playoff appearance in nine seasons... Great role player... It seems foolish a team like the Nets didn't try to make deal for him as a backup to Buck Williams... Grabbed a rebound every 4.01 minutes on floor... Central Michigan star was chosen No. 36 overall by Pistons in 1977... Born May 7, 1955, in Ann Arbor, Mich.... Earned $284,000 last year before becoming free agent... Has great corner jump shot... Considering that he has averaged double figures in only one season, it's a tribute to his all-around game that he has lasted as long as he has... Cavs purchased him from Jazz prior to 1983-84... Still has a few good years left, if he can play for contending team.

Keith Lee

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-10 230 Forward

Another guy who goes to dinner table better than he goes to his left... Reported to camp out of shape and became a rookie flop... Cavs regret 1985 draft-day trade in which they sent Calvin Duncan and Charles Oakley to Bulls for Lee and Ennis Whatley... Seems a lot of scouts were right when they advised their teams to pass on him, allowing him to slip to 11th overall after he had been projected as a top five selection... Born Dec. 28, 1962, in West Memphis, Ark.... Set six records at Memphis State, including rebounds (1,329) and points (2,398)...

Lonnie Shelton

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-8 285 Forward

In the past, he was a shadow of his present self... How big is he?... He's so big he can play the weak side and strong side at the same time... He can be stationed in the paint, but you won't know it, because when he's in it, you can't see it... Weight took its tool on his knees and he played only 44 games, second-fewest total of 10-year NBA career... Knicks drafted him No. 25 overall in 1976 as hardship case... Starred in Oregon State... Born Oct. 19, 1955, in Bakersfield, Cal.... Cavs got him from Sonics for second-round pick and cash prior to 1983-84... Earned $420,000 last season and then became free agent...

Mel Turpin

Cleveland Cavaliers
6-11 265 Center

"Dinner-Bell Mel" jiggled his girth up and down the court last season, again failing to live up to expectations... Gund brothers, who own Cavs, must be shuddering as they contemplate paying him $900,000 this season... Can shoot, but that seems to be the only thing that interests him -- other than eating... There's no truth to the rumor that when 342-pound Geff Crompton was cut by the Cavs two years ago, he left this guy a list of his favorite eating places around the league... If he ever took the game seriously enough to really get in shape, he could be a serious force... Bullets picked him No. 6 overall in 1984, out of Kentucky... Was involved in draft-day, three-way trade that cost Cavs Cliff Robinson and No. 1 pick... Born Dec. 28, 1960, in Lexington, Ky...

Replaced Stan Albeck as confused management made change for the sake of change... Albeck never had a legitimiate chance to succeed, since Michael Jordan missed most of 1985-86 season... Words of warning from Albeck: "I don't know if he (Collins) understands the meddling and interference that comes with this job. they're going to try and manipulate him."... Born July 28, 1951, in Christopher, Ill.... making him the youngest coach in the NBA... Was 76ers' top draftee in 1973, out of Illinois State... Played eight seasons before injuries ended career and scored 7,427 points... Four-time All-star, he scored 14 points for victorious East team in 1978... Had been assistant coach at Arizona State and color commentator on Sixers' games... Reportedly will earn $250,000 per season, so Bulls will pay half-million to two head coaches this season, because one guaranteed year remains on Albeck's contract.

Just coming into his own after six seasons in NBA... Agent made big pitch to get him out of Chicago prior to last season because he felt Oldham should start...

Decent player with good shooting touch... Was No. 18 pick overall by Bullets in 1978, out of DePaul... Born April 28, 1956, in Arlington Heights, Ill....
