Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Georgi Nikolov Glouchkov (Bulgarian: ) (born January 10, 1960 in Tryavna) is a Bulgarian former professional basketball player. A 6 ft 8 in (204 cm) forward, he was the first player from an Eastern bloc country to compete in the American National Basketball Association (NBA). Glouchkov began playing with Bulgaria's national team at the age of seventeen. He also played with the club Akademik Varna, and by the mid-1980s, he had established a reputation as one of Europe's top five players. After averaging 23 points and 19 rebounds during the 1984-85 season in which his team won the national championship, he attracted the attention of the Phoenix Suns, who selected him in the seventh round (148th pick overall) of the 1985 NBA Draft. The Suns signed him to much fanfare on September 25, 1985, releasing a special press kit which included a history of Bulgaria and a glossary of Bulgarian phrases.show more
