World B. Free, who was a second round pick in 1975, only spent three seasons with the Sixers upon being drafted, averaging 13.6 points per game over that span. He was an electric scorer, using his high-arcing jumper and crafty isolation scoring to punish defenders.
On top of his scoring skills, Free was also an elite athlete. He became known for his explosive dunks, boasting an impressive 44-inch vertical.
Once Free moved on from the Sixers, he quickly became one of the most prolific offensive players in the league. He was only a one-time All-Star with the San Diego Clippers in 1980, but averaged 20.3 points per game over the course of his 14-year career.
The Cleveland Cavaliers honored Free in 2017. Free spent four seasons with the Cavs in the 80s, energizing a franchise that was in desperate need of his scoring punch.
After that stint in Cleveland, Free returned to the Sixers in 1986. He only spent 20 games with the team before being waived, though, finishing his career with the Houston Rockets the next season.
Free is now the Sixers’ director of player development.
