No. 17 - Eric Leckner
No. 42 - Jeff Moe
No. 67 - Ricky Grace

Leckner played two seasons in Utah, with eight seasons in the NBA overall. He was involved in the 1990 trade which brought Jeff Malone to the Jazz.

Jeff Moe was from the hoops heartland of Indiana and was part of an Iowa pipeline to the NBA in the 1980s (B.J. Armstrong went to Chicago the following year).

Grace did not make an NBA roster and played in Australia his entire career. He was inducted into the Australian Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.

Danny Shayes played for 19 years in the NBA???? I thought there was a mistake, but I looked it up and it's correct, if not impossible to believe..


I hate looking at such lists: Just look at the list of players the Jazz whiffed on between 1986 and 91 and it makes you wonder what might have been:

Vlade Divac, Rod Strickland, Mark Jackson, Cliff Robinson, Arvydas Sabonis, Dennis Rodman, Mark Price, Hornacek (First time), Kevin Duckworth, Anthony Mason, Antonio Davis.
and Sam Cassel in 1993.

I'm scratching my head trying to remember Jeff Moe on the Jazz. Sure looks like Tom Chambers in the picture.
