Another rule-bending, edgy addition to the list, Jeremy Lamb ranking as one of the best picks among a bunch of proven vets might be a head-scratcher.
He was traded to Oklahoma City during the big acquisition of James Harden, an incident that has left OKC looking silly in retrospect.
Little do the Thunder know that they have a possible superstar stashed away on their bench courtesy of Daryl Morey and the Houston Rockets front office.
Lamb came into the league from UConn as a pure shooter. Much of his game is predicated off his ability to the shoot the ball, and considering he was playing behind Thabo Sefolosha and Kevin Martin, it's no wonder he wasn't getting much playing time.
He has the talent and skill level; he just needs to pack on more muscle and make the most of his opportunities should they come calling.
Let's not go crazy over D-League stats, but 21 points per game with around six boards is nice wherever you're playing. He also shot 45 percent, which is efficient considering a lot of his game is shooting tough shots off the dribble from mid-range.
He also has impeccable touch from the mid-range off floaters, a shot that takes years to develop.
Although the situations he's been a part of haven't been fair, when he gets more playing time, it's going to be evident that he belongs in the league.
It's rare you see someone play the game so fundamentally sound at such a young age.
