Biographical Info

Drafted 17th overall in the 1983 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, Leo Rautins became the first ever Canadian to be drafted in the 1st round of the NBA draft. Rautins’ promising NBA career was hampered by torn ligaments in his foot, and as result he played only sparingly during his NBA career with the 76ers in the Atlanta Hawks. After playing pro for several teams in Italy, France and Spain, Rautins retired from playing in 1993. Since the Toronto Raptors inception, he has been a television commentator for the team. Rautins was also the coach of the Canadians National Men’s Basketball Team from 2005 until 2011.
