Mike Muscala was selected by the Dallas Mavericks as the 44th pick before he was traded to the Atlanta Hawks. He spent five seasons with the Hawks, marking the longest tenure he has had with a single franchise. Following his stint in Atlanta, Muscala played for the Philadelphia 76ers and briefly joined the Los Angeles Lakers.
