   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)
2011-01-05

Stromile Swift - Despite starring there last year, Stromile Swift has not returned to China this year. And despite being a good player in it for many years, Stromile has yet to return to the NBA either. Stromile is unsigned altogether, and the comeback doesn't look possible now.

   The best of what's left
2010-07-30

Stromile Swift - Tyrus Thomas was more similar to Stromile than we Bulls fans ever could have accepted, which is slightly worrying as Stromile spent last season in China. He was bought out by the Nets at the 2009 playoff deadline, and signed with the Phoenix Suns to complete the 2008-09 season. But the only contract he could get for this season was an unguaranteed minimum with the Sixers, and even that was insufficient, as the team waived him before the regular season started. Stromile then went to China, where he averaged 22.1 points, 11.8 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game for the playoffless Shandong Flaming Bulls. (As an aside, Stromile hit four three pointers on the season; curiously, all four of them came in the same game.) It was only two short years ago that Swift was an effective player on both ends of an NBA court, and although he's now 30, I believe that he could still be so.

This dunk remains extremely underrated.

   Chinese Basketball Association Statistics, 2010
2010-03-07

- Stromile Swift: 32.1mpg, 21.5ppg, 12.1rpg, 1.6apg, 3.7fpg, 1.4spg, 3.0bpg, 61% FG, 31% 3PT, 69% FT

Swift's first non-NBA gig of his professional career started kind of slowly, and a combined 19 points and 10 rebounds in the last two games hasn't helped either. Yet immediately proceeding those two games came a six game stretch in which Swift averaged 32.5 points and 15.8 rebounds per game. His 12.1 rebounds per game rank sixth in the CBA, and the 3.0 bpg rank third; when he's good, he's very good. And so are those numbers.
