Geoff Petrie


Geoff Petrie, the Trail Blazers' first draft pick, was the co-Rookie of the Year (with Dave Cowens) in 1970-71, when he led Portland with 24.8 points and made the first of two All-Star teams. He averaged at least 18.3 points in each of the next five seasons, but a potential Hall of Fame career was then cut short by knee injuries. Now the Kings' personnel boss, Petrie is a two-time NBA Executive of the Year.
