2007: Greg Oden but that's not really fair.
2001: Kwame Brown only started 3 games his rookie season, 20 the next.
1977: Kent Benson. Can't find specific start stats but only played 18.7 mpg his first season and 26.0 his second.
1972: LaRue Martin played 4 full seasons never averaging more than 17 mpg.
I'm sure there is some back in the 50's and 60's but that's as far as I bothered to go researching. I'm a big Bennet fan but that's not a good track record lol.
