Spencer Haywood Booking Agent Details
Spencer Haywood is a retired power forward and center who, except for one season in Italy, played in the NBA from 1969 – 1983 for a number of teams, including the Seattle SuperSonics, New York Knicks, New Orleans Jazz, Washington Bullets and Los Angeles Lakers. He was a four-time NBA All-Star and two-time All-NBA First Team selection. He won a title with the Lakers.

Haywood went to school at Trinidad State Junior College in Trinidad, CO and averaged 28.2 points and 22.1 rebounds per game. As a result of his strong play, Haywood made the USA Olympic basketball team and was the leading scorer in leading Team USA to the gold medal at the 1968 Olympics. Haywood then transferred to the University of Detroit for the 1968-69 season and led the NCAA in rebounding with a 21.5 average per game average while also scoring 32.1 points per game.

Haywood wanted to turn professional after his sophomore season but at that time NBA rules required a player to wait until his class graduated before entering the league. As a result, Haywood joined the ABA’s Denver Rockets, where he played for one season before joining the SuperSonics.

Haywood's jersey was retired by Seattle during a halftime ceremony on February 26, 2007. He was induced into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2015. In 2016, a movie was released entitled “Full Court: The Spencer Haywood Story”, which traces his humble start in Mississippi being raised by a single mother to his Hall of Fame induction.
