The Team to be named later selects:

Jack Wayne Sikma (born November 14, 1955 in Kankakee, Illinois) is an American former NBA basketball center.

Drafted eighth overall in 1977 by the Seattle SuperSonics out of Illinois Wesleyan University, Sikma was named to the NBA's 1977-1978 All-Rookie team and went on to prove himself as a durable and versatile player. Among his main achievements, should be stressed his seven All-Star Game selections (from 1979 to 1985) and his championship ring won with the 1978-1979 Sonics, where Sikma teamed with talented players such as Dennis Johnson, Gus Williams and an aging Paul Silas. Sikma never failed to average double figures in points-per-game throughout his career, and after his stint with the Sonics, he maintained consistent numbers while playing with the Milwaukee Bucks in his final five seasons. For his career, Sikma scored 17,287 points and grabbed 10,816 rebounds.

Sikma somewhat lacked both leaping ability and physical strength,[citation needed] but had a tremendous shooting accuracy and good passing skills, especially for a man his size (6 ft 11 in, or 211 cm). During his career he bore the distinction of being an exceptionally high percentage free throw shooter for his size (84.9%).

Sikma later served as an assistant coach with the SuperSonics.
