C.J. Leslie - Leslie lost out on a roster spot to Chris Smith, and is in the D-League, averaging 16.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks for the Erie BayHawks. He is one of those players whose perceived talent outweighs his actual talent - Leslie tantalizes with the outline of an inside/outside offensive game and great defensive potential, but he rarely plugs in, wants to play on the perimeter on both ends, and in the end is no more productive than half of this list. Leslie might have more talent than the aforementioned Landry, but at least Landry knows how to use his.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
