21. Derrick McKey
Dubbed “Heavy D”, Small Forward, Derrick McKey was considered by many to be a consummate team player.  A good defensive player, McKey would put together three straight seasons for the SuperSonics where he averaged over 15 Points per Game.  The former SEC Player of the Year was a popular figure in Seattle and loved for his consistent game and while he would be named to a pair of Second Team All-Defensive squads with the Indiana Pacers it was with Seattle where he was at his best offensively.
