Bill Garnett

Indiana Pacers
6-9 220 Forward

Was this man really the fourth player taken in the 1982 draft?... Did the Pacers really give up No. 1 choice in 1990 to get him and Terence Stansbury from Dallas prior to 1984-85? The answers are yes and yes... Has done nothing to live up to his lofty status... Has never averaged as many as 6.5 ppg... His chief worth is as an enforcer and an occasional rebounder... Averaged one rebound for every 4.35 minutes he was on the court last year... University of Wyoming star shot .609 as a senior, but hasn't made it above .481 in the last three seasons as pro... Born April 22, 1960, in Kansas City... Father Shad was drafted as tackle by San Francisco 49ers... Will earn 300,000 this season.

Relevant Stats:
4.3 ppg, 46.9 FG%, 3.44 rpg
