Even players who once experienced top-10-pick fanfare can find themselves facing a make-or-break season just a few short years after entering the league.

And for the likes of Evan Turner, Deron Williams and others, the 2014-15 campaign could go down as the one in which they realized that NBA relevance has a short shelf life.

Each of the players on this list was once a rising star, draft darling, and in the case of one, a former MVP. But injuries, lack of consistency or just inability to grow into the NBA game has stalled all their careers.

Most are either on one-year deals or the final year of a longer contract in 2014-15. If they don't prove they belong now, they could be on their way out, or at least on the way to a much different role.

The following slides will show where each of these players were when they entered the league, how they got to where they are now and what they need to do to get back on track.
