RANDY FOYEGame 682 | October 24, 2006 | Randy Foye, Fred Hoiberg
Selected by Boston with the seventh pick in the 2006 NBA draft, Foye, a point guard, was immediately traded to the Portland Trail Blazers and from Portland to the Minnesota Timberwolves. He played in all 82 games his rookie season, averaging 10.1 points per game. Injuries limited him to 39 games the next year as his scoring average rose to 13.1. In June of 2006 Foye was diagnosed with a rare condition, "situs inversus," in which all his organs are arranged in the mirror image of what is normal. Hoiberg, forced into a front-office position because of a heart condition earlier in 2006, talked about his recovery and transition from the playing floor to a desk job.
