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

Joe Alexander - After two years of unadulterated fail, Alexander has started to put something together. Failing to make the Hornets regular season roster out of training camp - although picking up $200,000 for his efforts - Alexander went to the D-League, and was acquired by the Mavericks' affiliate, the Texas Legends. Alexander has gone on to become one of the better players in the D-League, averaging 19.3 points, 11.1 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.4 blocks in a hefty 43.6 minutes per game, shooting 48% from the field and 33% from three. Alexander also averages 4 fouls and 3.4 turnovers per game, yet the rest of the production is there across the board. A lottery team looking to use 10 day contracts to find potential future pieces could find some success with Alexander, if they forget what has gone before.

   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left

- Joe Alexander * - Alexander has been working out with the Timberwolves. The Wolves absolutely, completely, totally and indisptuably don't need another forward, but that isn't necessarily an obstacle. It's also not entirely baseless; Minnesota are the kind of team that needs to air out the retreads and the reclamation projects. There may be nothing to gain, but there's also nothing to lose.

   The best of what's left

Joe Alexander - If you had expected the Joe Alexander/Scott Skiles marriage to end well for Joe Alexander, then.....well, you're an idiot. Alexander was pawned off to the Bulls at the deadline, where he played almost as little as he did in Milwaukee, recording 29 minutes all season. He didn't even play for Chicago in summer league. Given that no one has played him, we can only assume that he's the same player he was before; hugely athletic, and able to get off shots on the back of that, but just not good at making them, and prone to every kind of mistake in the book. Someone will take a chance on him next year, yet that someone will probably be the Reno Bighorns.

   Anthony Morrow's impending free agency

[Anthony] Morrow is to be a free agent this summer. There's no getting around that, because he is not eligible for an extension. He has played only two years in the league, and teams can make players with three years or less experience into restricted free agents, whether they like it or not, by extending a qualifying offer. [...] The exception to this rule, the only exception, is players who were on a first round rookie scale contract, who had an option year declined. This means that players like Acie Law, Joe Alexander and Ian Mahinmi will not and cannot be restricted free agents this summer. They can also never be restricted free agents ever again, so even if Alexander (a two year veteran) were to sign a one year deal somewhere this summer, meaning that he would be only a three year veteran during his second free agency stint in the summer of 2011, he cannot be made into a restricted free agent then either. This is what happened to Shannon Brown last year.

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.
