onald James MacLean (born January 16, 1970 in Palo Alto, California) is a former professional basketball player in the NBA, as well as holding the distinction of being the all-time scoring leader at UCLA.
He was selected by the Detroit Pistons in the 1992 NBA Draft but was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers who in turn traded him to the Washington Bullets.
After graduating from Simi Valley High School in Simi Valley, California where he was an All-American, he played in college at UCLA from 1989 to 1992. He still holds the school record for points scored, passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (formerly known as Lew Alcindor) in his senior year.
MacLean tested positive for steroids in 2000, although Charles Barkley came to his defense, saying, "I've seen Don MacLean naked, and he doesn't use steroids."
MacLean, along with his 1994-95 Washington Bullets teammates Rex Chapman, Tom Gugliotta, and Scott Skiles, all reunited in Phoenix in 1999-2000 when Chapman, Gugliotta, and MacLean were Suns players and Skiles was the head coach. As highly productive scoring Bullets teammates in 1994-95, Chapman averaged 16.2 points per game (ranked 4th highest on the team), Gugliotta averaged 16.0 (5th on the team), Skiles averaged 13.0 (6th on the team), and MacLean averaged 11.0 (7th on the team). However, as Suns teammates, Gugliotta averaged 13.7 (5th on the team), Chapman averaged only 6.6 (9th on the team), and MacLean averaged only 2.6 (15th on the team).
MacLean currently serves as a studio analyst for Los Angeles Clippers basketball on Fox Sports Net West/Prime Ticket.
