Drafted: No. 28 overall, 2010
Greivis Vasquez has been huge for Toronto off the bench in the Raptors' first-round series with the Brooklyn Nets. He's averaging 7.7 assists to just 1.7 turnovers through four games, facilitating at the point and from the wing alongside Kyle Lowry.
He even drilled a big-time three-pointer in Game 4 to give the Raptors an 83-79 lead with just over four minutes left.
Vasquez has his flaws, but there's no denying his passing instincts and playmaking ability. He has great vision in the open floor, where he finds his shooters and hits them in stride. But it's not always the flashy dime on the move—sometimes, its just a quick, standstill pass from the wing to the corner that hits a shooter whose defender isn't in position to close out.
He went for nine points, nine boards and six assists in the Raptors' Game 4 win and 11 points and eight assists in their Game 2 win. In a Game 1 loss, he finished with 18 points and eight assists.
Though extremely productive in four years at Maryland, Vasquez was more of a shoot-first lead guard who turned the ball over a ton and was inconsistent from the perimeter. And it ultimately weighed on his draft stock.
Fast-forward a few years, and he's now playing a major role for the Raptors in the playoffs as a passer and playmaker. Go figure.
