Wally Szczerbiak has a well-earned reputation as one of the NBA's most dangerous perimeter shooters. The son of former ABA player and long-time European star Walt Szczerbiak, Wally blossomed into a star at Miami (Ohio). He was a Second Team All-American pick as a senior and led the Redhawks to the Sweet Sixteen that season, scoring 43 of the team's 59 points in a First Round win over Washington. Drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves sixth overall, Szczerbiak spent six and a half seasons in Minnesota. He was picked as a Western Conference All-Star in 2002, when he averaged 18.7 points per game. Szczerbiak came to the Sonics from Boston as part of a multi-player trade on the night of the 2007 NBA Draft.
