Future NBA Stars Stuck in Bad Situations
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most important aspects of the NBA developmental process is the team-player fit. 

A lot of guys get drafted into situations that don't allow them to thrive or reach their true potential. We recently saw Derrick Williams, the No. 2 pick in the 2011 draft, get traded to Sacramento, where he'll have a good shot at reviving his NBA career. 

According to ESPN, Williams told the Associated Press, "There were times where I was like, 'I'm definitely not going to play tonight,' " referring to his time in Minnesota. "And K-Love would have 25 [points] and 15 [rebounds]. Sometimes you have to come to grips with yourself and realize that."

A guy like Williams should benefit from a change a scenery, given the Timberwolves' roster situation and state of the team.

These are the guys who should have a better chance at emerging as stars with a fresh start somewhere else.
