Bryant "Big Country" Reeves, the almost Washington Bullet

 

In doing more research, imagine the chills sent up my spine when I came across the excerpt below from a June 1995 Washington Post story:

Toronto General Manager Isiah Thomas offered [B.J.] Armstrong and the seventh pick in Wednesday's college draft to [John] Nash in exchange for the fourth overall pick. Had the Bullets made the deal, they probably would have drafted Oklahoma State center Bryant Reeves.

Well, Johnny Nash didn't make the deal and the Bullets selected Rasheed Wallace with the fourth pick in the '95 NBA draft. Nash already has enough trouble with his Washington legacy.....could you imagine? And the rest is history.
