49. Clemon Johnson

Clemon Johnson was traded from Portland before the 1979-80 season and after his rookie campaign.  Johnson would get to play more than he did in Portland, though he was still mostly used off of the bench.  His run with the Pacers would last for three and a half seasons, where he would average 7.9 Points and 6.0 Rebounds per Game.  Johnson was a good blocker, and he finished in the top twenty in Blocks per Game three times, but in the top ten in Block Percentage twice as a Pacer.

Johnson would be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in February in 1983, and he would win the NBA Championship with them that year.  He would later go on to coach Florida A&M, which was his alma mater.
