All-time greatest Utah Jazz players: No. 47 Felton Spencer

  • Seasons with the franchise: Three (1993-94 to 1995-96)
  • Regular-season games played: 184
  • Averages as a Jazzman: 7.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.8 blocks
  • Shooting percentages: 50.5 from the field, 67.5 from the foul line
  • Playoff games with Utah: 34
  • Postseason averages: 5.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 0.3 assists, 0.2 steals, 1.2 blocks


Outside of the considerable time spent on the sideline due to injuries, Felton Spencer was the full-time starter at the five-spot across his three seasons with the Utah Jazz. And those three teams each won at least 53 games in the regular season.

Furthermore, it’s worth noting here that those three campaigns coincided with Spencer’s prime as a professional and were a build-up to the franchise reigning supreme in the Western Conference.

That said, given Spencer’s utter size and the countless double-teams that Karl Malone’s presence demanded back in those days from Jazz opponents, it seems that the 7-foot, 265-pounder could have offered a tad more in terms of intimidating opponents on either end of the floor.
