Adrian Dantley Biography
Adrian Dantley was born February 28, 1956 in Washington, D.C. and was a basketball Guard/Forward who played 15 seasons in the NBA, seven of which as a member of the Utah Jazz.
He was the leading scorer on the 1976 US Olympic team that captured the gold medal in Montreal and was drafted sixth overall, by the Buffalo Braves, in the 1976 NBA draft. He became the third Buffalo player in five years to receive the NBA Rookie of the Year Award when he won it after the 1977 season. Dantley remains the only Rookie of the Year in any major sport to be traded after his rookie year.
Dantley finished his career with an average of 24.3 points per game. He scored his points with a mix of mid-range jump shots, high-percentage opportunities close to the basket, and frequent trips to the free throw line. For his career, he shot .540 from the floor -- 16th in NBA history -- and .818 from the charity stripe. He led the league in free throws six times and ranks sixth all-time in that category. He shares the record (with Wilt Chamberlain) for most free throws made in a regular-season NBA game with 28.
Dantley's uniform number (#4) was retired by Utah on April 11, 2007.
He enjoyed outstanding success at every level of basketball, including high school, college, Olympics, NBA, and it was announced on April 7, 2008 that he would be elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame, 16 years after his retirement.
Dantley currently holds an assistant coaching position with the Denver Nuggets.
