3. Brad Daugherty

Brad Daugherty was the number one Draft Pick of 1986, a pick they obtained many years before in a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers.  Along with Ron Harper and Mark Price who they also picked up that season, Daugherty was the literal centerpiece of a Cavs team that would regularly win 50 Games, and he was named an All-Star five times, and while he may not have been on the upper tier of NBA Centers, he wasn't far from it.  Daugherty was a Third Team All-NBA Selection in 1991/92, and he would have six straight seasons where he averaged 9.0 Rebounds per Game, with the last four seeing him go over 10.  Daugherty would also have three straight 20 Points per Game Seasons (1990-91 to 1992-93).

61. Brad Daugherty

Brad Daugherty was an All-American at North Carolina and the number one overall pick of the 1986 draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers just ahead of Len Bias.  Along with fellow rookies John Hot Rod Williams, Mark Price and Ron Harper, Daugherty ushered in the highest competitive run in Cavalier history.  The Cavs were title contenders in the Eastern Conference for the next decade and if it wasn’t for the great Bulls teams, they may have won a few titles.  Daugherty averaged 19 points and 10 boards over those ten years and was a five time All-Star. Daugherty had the size (seven feet and 245 pounds) to dominate the middle and as you can see by his stats he was very productive.
