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%
