Abstract (Document Summary)

People did [Stacey Augmon] a disservice by comparing him to Dennis Rodman, a true anomaly. He's more like his idol, Michael Cooper, a seventh-round pick who learned to shoot and handle the ball. If Augmon develops as Cooper did, he can have the same kind of career.

Mark Randall, Chicago-Pete Chilcutt, a 6-9, 240-pounder would have been nice at No. 26 for the Bulls, who are small up front. Instead, they took the short (6-7 1/2), slow Randall. General Manager Jerry Krause had five No. 1 picks between 1988-90 without getting a starter. In '88 with three first-rounders, he used the third for Jeff Sanders rather than Vlade Divac.

John Turner, Houston-Talk about your truth-in-packaging problem. The NBA guide had him 6-9 and 245 but at the Chicago pre-draft camp, they measured him at 6-5 1/2 and 228. He's still a little hulk, a dream pick at No. 20 for the Rockets who want to replace Buck Johnson.
