Stacey Orlando Augmon (born August 1, 1968) is a retired American professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association (NBA), who now serves as a head coach of Jeonju KCC Egis of Korean Basketball League. He gained the nickname "Plastic Man" due to his athletic ability to "stretch". He was also an assistant coach at his alma mater UNLV under coach Dave Rice.[1]

College

Augmon played college basketball for four years at UNLV under Coach Jerry Tarkanian. During his junior year, the Runnin' Rebels won the 1990 NCAA Championship defeating the Duke Blue Devils. Augmon was the first three-time winner of the NABC Defensive Player of the Year, winning the award in 1989, 1990, and 1991.[2] He is a class of 2002 member of the UNLV Athletic Hall of Fame along with teammates Greg Anthony and Larry Johnson.[3]. In March 2011, HBO premiered a documentary entitled Runnin' Rebels of UNLV. [4]

NBA career

Augmon was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks with the ninth pick of the 1991 NBA draft. He was the first player in the top ten draft picks to work out a deal, a 5-year contract worth between 6.5 and 7 million dollars.[5] Augmon has played for the Hawks, the Detroit Pistons, the Portland Trail Blazers, the Charlotte Hornets, the New Orleans Hornets, and the Orlando Magic. He holds a scoring average of 8.0 points per game throughout his career.

The Magic decided not to re-sign Augmon for the 2006–07 NBA season, making him an unrestricted free agent. On October 3, 2007, the Denver Nuggets announced the signing of the 15-year veteran,[6] but he was later waived on the 24th.[7] One month and three days later, Denver re-hired Augmon, this time as a player development coach.[8]

Post-playing career

Augmon is based from L.A. County and a president of a bike club.[9] In May 2011, he left the Denver Nuggets to join the staff of former Rebels teammate Dave Rice as an assistant coach for UNLV.[1]. In Sept 2016, he was named an assistant coach for the Milwaukee Bucks.[10]

Controversy

During the 2004–2005 season, Augmon was investigated by the league for two incidents. He had already refused to speak to the media, which violated league rules.[11]

The first was following a game March 11, 2005. Greg Sandoval from The Washington Post wrote, "As reporters gathered around the locker of Magic guard Jameer Nelson, a female reporter for a local TV station kneeled down to give cameramen a clear shot and to place a microphone near Nelson, who was sitting. Augmon, whose locker is near Nelson's, made a comment about the woman being on her knees in front of a player that involved a reference to oral sex, a witness told the newspaper."[11]

Two nights later on March 13, Sandoval continues, "Augmon became angered over a question that an Orlando Sentinel reporter asked Magic guard Steve Francis.[11] "That's a stupid [expletive] question", Augmon allegedly said, according to several reports. When a male Florida Today reporter told Augmon that they were interviewing Francis and not him, Augmon shouted obscenities and began moving toward the reporter. A Magic employee stepped in front of Augmon, who then threw a bottle of lotion at the reporter. The bottle did not strike the reporter but some of its contents splashed his clothes."[11]
