Mason Plumlee was not expected to be much of a factor this season with the Nets. Many, including Billy King, thought that Plumlee was bound the D-League, but instead he became a key component to the Nets incredible turnaround in 2014. Plumlee filled in nicely off the bench during the season and for a 22-game stretch became the starting center as Kevin Garnett battled back spasms. The team went 16-6 when Plumlee started this season.
