- Linas Kleiza

Kleiza left the NBA to get more money in Europe - it's weird that it's possible this way around now - and is now one of the best players there. He still can't defend either forward position, but he scores prolifically from both. Playing for Olympiakos in Greece, Kleiza is averaging 15.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in only 23 minutes per game in the Greek league (Olympiakos often win in blowouts, and also take advantage of the fact that they go 12 deep), alongside 17.9 points and 6.9 rebounds in 30 minutes per game in the Euroleague. The points per game average leads the Euroleague, and if you're the leading scorer in the second highest standard league in the world, you're a fine player.

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.
