Selected by Houston Rockets

Samuel (Sam) E. Mitchell, Jr. (born September 2, 1963 in Columbus, Georgia) is a retired American professional basketball player and a former head coach in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

A Columbus (Georgia) High School graduate, the 6'6", 210 lb (95 kg) small forward was drafted out of Mercer University with the seventh pick of the third round (54th overall) by the Houston Rockets in the 1985 NBA Draft. Mitchell scored nearly 2000 points at Mercer, becoming the leading scorer in team history. He led the Bears to both the regular-season and postseason Trans-American Atlantic Conference championships in 1985. As a result, the team made the NCAA tournament that year.
