Romel Beck

Beck is a 6'8 Mexican shooting guard out of UNLV with a whole load of scoring talent.

And the reason for that lack of NBA airtime is how ridiculously selfish of a player he has been throughout his career. Beck's scoring talents are legitimate; for example, last year in the D-League, Beck averaged 17.9 points per game for the Dakota Wizards, shooting .543% from the field and .445% from three point range. He's improving his decision making, and can still create his own shot with relative ease. But his reputation still precedes him, and it might be too late.
