    There was SF in the 1980's (around 1983-5) who I believe we got on a draft day trade. But I can't remember his name! It is driving me crazy. Anyway he was about 6'8" , good range on his jumper, athletic, good rebounder, decent handles, maybe a little over weight.......What I didn't know was how stupid he was nor his love for being stoned while playing. He never made it but he had a lot of potential.

    Anyone know? He is not on any of the rosters, but I swear he was on the team for at least a year.

    I remember going to opening night against the Hawks during Monia’s rookie year. He played quite well and thought the same thing. That was likely his best game if I remember correctly.

    Yup. 8 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists. He never scored in double figures for us, maxed out at 5 assists and his rebound high was 8. That could be why we expected more out of him.

    I thought Sidney Wicks would be a lot better than he was.

    A few young guys we either drafted or came in early I thought might be good someday and weren't, Joel Freeland, Victor Claver, Thomas Robinson.

    The problem with Camby was that he was already 35 years old when he was traded here. His stint in Portland was pretty good considering his age.

    Are you thinking of either Ronnie Murphy? He was pretty highly touted but battled weight issues and never got any traction in the NBA. He was our first round pick in 1988.

    This wasn't the 80's but in 1992 we took Dave Johnson in the 1st round too. I don't remember if he was overweight at all but he did flame out too.

    Here's a name from prehistory: Bernie Fryer.

    Fell short as a player, then fell even shorter as a ref.
