High school and college career

Schrempf was born in Leverkusen, then part of West Germany. He moved with his family to the United States for his senior year of high school, attending Centralia High School in Centralia, Washington, for one year, leading the Tigers to the Class 3A (then AA) state championship in 1981.[2] in his senior year by defeating the Blazers of Timberline High School.[3] After graduating he enrolled at the University of Washington, where he played basketball for the Washington Huskies men's basketball team from 1981 to 1985 under coach Marv Harshman.[4] With Schrempf, the Huskies won Pac-10 regular-season titles in 1984 and 1985 and made three postseason appearances, reaching the Sweet 16 in 1984. In his career at Washington, he scored 1,449 total points.

Schrempf was named to the All-Pac-10 First Team and The Sporting News All-America Second Team. He was inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame in 1995, and was also named to the University of Washington All-Century Team. While attending UW, he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and majored in International Business.[3]

NBA career

Originally selected eighth overall by the Dallas Mavericks in the 1985 NBA draft, Schrempf became a regular in NBA rotations after being traded to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for veteran center Herb Williams. Playing for the Pacers, he finished second in the NBA with a .478 three-point percentage in 1987, and eventually worked his way into the starting lineup. In 1991 and 1992 he won consecutive NBA Sixth Man Awards. In the 1992–93 season, he was the only player in the NBA to finish in the top 25 in scoring (19.1 ppg), rebounding (9.5 rpg) and assists (6.0 apg),[5] and was selected to play in the National Basketball Association All-Star Game, the first of his three appearances.

Following the 1992–93 NBA season, Schrempf was traded to the Seattle SuperSonics for forward Derrick McKey and guard/forward Gerald Paddio. He ranked second in the NBA in three-point accuracy during the 1994–95 season with a 51.4 three-point field goal percentage. On a Sonics team that also featured Gary Payton, Shawn Kemp, Sam Perkins, and Hersey Hawkins, Schrempf reached the NBA Finals in 1996, where they lost to Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls in six games. Schrempf became the first (and one of only two, to date, along with Dirk Nowitzki) German-born NBA player to reach the NBA Finals. While with the Sonics, Schrempf played in the NBA All-Star game in both 1995 and 1997.

Schrempf was released by the Sonics in 1999 and signed the same day by the Portland Trail Blazers, with whom he played until his retirement from professional basketball in 2001, playing in a total of 1136 regular season games and 114 playoff games. On January 24, 2006, the Seattle SuperSonics hired Schrempf as an assistant coach under Bob Hill, who coached Schrempf with the Indiana Pacers.[6]

International career

Schrempf played for the West Germany national team in the 1984 Olympics and the 1983 and 1985 European championships. In 1992, he played for the German Olympic team.[7]

Charitable work

Schrempf established the Detlef Schrempf Foundation in 1996 to benefit local charities. In January 2012, he won the Paul Allen Award for Citizenship (formerly the Seattle Sports Commission Sports Citizen of the Year) at the 77th annual Sports Star of the Year banquet in Seattle.[8] His foundation hosts the Detlef Schrempf Celebrity Golf Classic at McCormick Woods Golf Course in Port Orchard, Washington every summer and has raised about $10 million for children's charities in the Pacific Northwest.[9]

Personal life

Schrempf is married to Mari Schrempf. They have two sons, Alex and Michael.[10] As of 2010, Schrempf is Business Development Officer at Coldstream Capital, a wealth management firm in Seattle.[11][12][13]
