Hot Cougar Action: Monday morning trivia

The WSU men's basketball team isn't very inspiring so I turned to the NBA for this week's trivia question.

To find the weekly trivia questions, I usually look through some box scores and other stats to see if I can find anything noteworthy. Considering I'd rather stab myself with a fork than start at the recent WSU box scores, we'll turn to the NBA for today's question.

Klay Thompson is currently averaging 16.3 points per game. If he maintains that average, it would be the highest PPG average any WSU player has put up in the NBA. Today's question is which former Cougar basketball player currently holds the record for the highest qualified PPG average in the NBA? I'll also throw some points in the direction of the person who guesses the PPG average.
