Dan Langhi
Drafted by Dallas Mavericks in Round 2, pick 31
Traded to Houston Rockets

Position: Power Forward
College: Vanderbilt
Conference: SEC
Height: 6'11"
Weight: 215
Birthdate: 11/28/77
High School: Marshall County, Benton, Ky.

Langhi was voted the player of the year in the SEC, an honor he richly deserved. No player in that rugged league was as important to his team. In fact, Langhi carried Vanderbilt at times because he had to; first-year Commodore coach Kevin Stallings had precious little depth and scoring punch at his disposal. At 6-11 and 215, Langhi was always torn between two positions -- power forward and small forward -- in college. At his size, he should be able to score in the post, and he demonstrated an ability to do that as a senior. But his forte is perimeter shooting. Few big men in the country shot as well from the 3-point arc as Langhi. Stallings said Langhi was the best scorer he'd ever coached because of his ability to post, drive or shoot the jumper. Langhi is a smart player who can make up for his lack of bulk and strength with good decisions.
