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

JamesOn Curry and Scottie Reynolds - The two are listed together because they currently form a high scoring if undersized backcourt for the D-league's Springfield Armor. Curry averages 18.0 points, 3.8 assists and 2.6 turnovers per game on 44% shooting and 47% 3PT; Reynolds averages 16.3 points, 5.0 assists, 2.2 turnovers, 47% FG and 38% 3PT. Curry is one of the best available shooters, although he doesn't offer much else from the point guard spot; Reynolds offers slightly more conventional point guard skills, but is still best as a scorer and a shooter, without being quite as good of a shooter as JamesOn.

   The best of what's left

JamesOn Curry - JamesOn Curry earned a midseason call-up to the Clippers last season from the Springfield Armor of the D-League. It was an interesting call-up; Curry was averaging only 14.4 points and 6.4 assists per 36 minutes down there, which are decent numbers yet not normally point guard calibre. Nevertheless, the shooter was called up on a ten day contract, where he preceded to set an NBA record. Curry currently boasts the shortest career of all time of anyone to have ever taken the floor in an NBA regular season game, with his four second career shattering the previous record of nine seconds set by Alex Scales back in 2005. So he's got that going for him.

   Chicago's Meticulously Crafted 2011 Offseason Plan That Relies An Awful Lot Upon Guesswork

[...] Case in point - JamesOn Curry, a convicted drug dealer whom the Bulls once drafted and signed for a season without ever actually playing him. Curry is, and has always only ever been, a fringe NBA talent. So why didn't the Bulls abscond from him and draft a different fringe NBA talent instead? Because everyone has a past, and the Bulls know that too. You're not being sensible or Christian if you avoid everyone with a past. Had they avoided everyone with a past, they wouldn't have dealt with Scott Skiles, who regime in Chicago was really rather successful. (Until the end.) [Stephen] Jackson's past is blighted irreparably after his role in the brawl, but what are we going to do? Remind him of it every day? I don't think that achieves anything.
