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... May have eaten himself out of a job.

Relevant Stats:
4.5 ppg, 48.9 FG%, 3.25 rpg
