Biography

Thomas Joseph LAGARDE

From the University of North Carolina and member of the gold medal winning team at the 1975 Pan American Games, Tom LaGarde went on to play for his college coach, Dean Smith, at the Montreal Olympics. He then returned to Chapel Hill for one more season of college ball, during which he earned second-team All-America honors, before joining the NBA as a first round draft pick of the Denver Nuggets. After one season with Denver, LaGarde was traded to the Seattle Supersonics, which worked out well as he helped them win an NBA championship in that first year with them. After one more year with Seattle, LaGarde was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks in the expansion draft of 1980. He played two years in Dallas and retired, but came back in 1985 to play one game with the New Jersey Nets.
