Mack was selected with the 3rd pick of the second round in the 1979 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. He played with them for half a season before the Lakers traded him and two second round draft choices to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Mark Landsberger on February 13, 1980.[1][2]


While at San Jacinto, he was a teammate of future NBA journeyman center Alton Lister.[3]

Mack was the second-to-last Chicago Bulls player to wear the number 23 on their jersey prior to Michael Jordan's arrival on the team in 1984 (Mike Bratz, who played for the Bulls briefly in 1983, was the last player before Jordan).
