Albert King

New Jersey Nets
6-6 190 Forward

Signed disputed five-year, $3.3 million offer sheet with Knicks, including cash bonus of $960,000, that Nets matched to keep him... League won appeal when it claimed offer sheet circumvented salary cap, voiding terms of deal and making him free agent... Contract didn't make him any more consistent... Still a streak shooter... Ended season by making only 27 of 92 shots in final eight games... Denies he's not as tough as brother Bernard, but that's part of his problem... Born Dec. 17, 1959, in Brooklyn, N.Y.... Nets drafted him 10th overall in 1981, out of Maryland.

Relevant Stats:
14.3 ppg, 45.6 FG%, 5.01 rpg
