“Big Dukie” could play

After averaging 20 PPG and shooting 65% from the field in the ACC Brad Daugherty was selected before the great Len Bias in the ’86 NBA draft.  He went on to a super sweet yet short-lived career in the league.  The big man led the Cavs to 5 playoffs in 8 years while posting 19/10/52% FG and 6 free-throws made/game over 41 contests.

Daugherty also shows up 8th on the all-time list of most seasons with 600 REB, 300 AST & 50%+ FG.  He’s tied with two hall-of-famers with 3 qualifying years each.
