At just 16, Rautins became the youngest player to ever dress for the men’s National Team, and in 1983, he was the first Canadian to be selected in the first round of the NBA Draft (17th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers). He played one season with the 76ers and another with the Atlanta Hawks.
Off the court, Rautins has served as the television analyst for national broadcasts of the NBA in Canada, and the Toronto Raptors since the team was established in 1995. He has been the head coach of the Canada National Team since 2004. Rautins played at Syracuse University where he earned the Most Valuable Player award in the Big East tournament and was named to the school’s all-century team.
