Ex-NBA player Terry Cummings through the years – PHOTOS

Terry CummingsTerry Cummings was a prolific scorer during his time in the NBA. A veteran of 18 NBA seasons, Cummings scored at least 17 points per game in each of his first 10 seasons and finished his career with nearly 20,000 points while also seeing action in 110 playoff games.

Cummings, a power forward, started his NBA career with the Clippers in 1982. He was 21 years old as a rookie and the DePaul University product then scored 23.7 points per contest.

He was originally the second overall selection in the 1982 NBA Draft (James Worthy went to the Lakers at No. 1 and Dominique Wilkins was tabbed by Atlanta third overall).

Cummings suffered a serious knee injury in the summer of 1992 in a casual pickup game. He would miss the first 74 regular season games. Upon his return to the lineup, he could no longer put up near-All-Star numbers, and from then on he was used in a more suitable role as a reserve.

Cummings would play in San Antonio until 1994-95, when he joined Milwaukee again, and would change teams several more times in his career.

He would come off the bench for the Seattle SuperSonics, New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers, and the Golden State Warriors, where he would retire after the 1999–2000 season.

Cummings played in 1183 career NBA season games (815 started), averaging 16.4 ppg, 7.3 rpg in 28.7 minutes on the court. Cummings was named NBA All-Star in 1985 and 1989.
