The Lakers drafted Washington as the fifth overall pick in the 1973 draft and spent the better part of four seasons with the organization. Washington’s best season as a Laker came in 1977, when averaged a double-double at 11.5 points and 11.2 rebounds. Washington was traded to the Celtics that same season after getting into an altercation with Houston’s Rudy Tomjanovich during a game in December 1977.
