Spencer Haywood, a five-time All-Star and former ABA MVP and Rookie of the Year, was traded to the Knicks prior to the 1975-76 season, his second NBA stop and third pro basketball team.

Haywood averaged at least 20 points per game the previous six years before coming to New York, then averaged 19.9 points his first year with the Knicks. He did lead the team in rebounding (11.3 per game), but the Knicks finished 38-44 and missed the playoffs.

The next season, Haywood played just 31 games, and by the 1977-78 season, he averaged career lows in points (13.7) and rebounds (6.6). He was traded during the 1978-79 season to the Jazz for Joe Meriweather.
