   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 23

- Reece Gaines

After three years in Italy, Gaines has taken the unusual step of joining the D-League this season. It's unusual because he's 29 years old and not on the verge of a call-up, so there doesn't seem to be a lot of reason for the big paycut. Playing for the Bakersfield Jam, Gaines is averaging 13.5 points, 4.0 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 33 minutes per game, shooting 48% from the field and 40% from three point range. Solid all around numbers, but only solid.
