Vern Fleming

Indiana Pacers
6-5 195 Guard

Georgia product continued his progress after strong rookie season in 1984-85... Led team in assists with 505 and steals with 131... Developing into a pro point guard who can shoot... Smart player who shows little selfishness... U.S. Olympian in 1984... No. 18 pick overall by Pacers that year... Born Feb. 2, 1962, in Long Island City, N.Y.... Scheduled to earn $210,000 this season... Good rebounder for his size... Fouled out only once... Scored 1,777 points at Georgia, replacing Dominique Wilkins as all-time leader... Seems entrenched as Pacer starter... Was one of two Pacers to make more than 50 percent of field-goal attempts (.506) in 1985-86.

Relevant Stats:
