5: Gordon Hayward - Utah Jazz: It took all year, but he finally started getting consistent minutes in April.
For the season, he shot 49 percent from the field and 47 percent from three-point range. In April, those percentages were 58 and 57, and he averaged 16 points a game for the month.
4: Chase Budinger - Houston Rockets: A lot like George, Budinger made his way into the starting lineup later in the year. His scoring and assists both nearly doubled after the All-Star break.
3: Jordan Crawford - Washington Wizards: Crawford averaged about four points a game with the Hawks and about 16 with the Wizards.
He'll have a decent-sized role on the team next season whether or not Nick Young leaves via free agency. If Young does leave, Crawford could jump to the top of this list.
2: Jeff Teague - Atlanta Hawks: Jeff Teague is one of the quickest players in the league. Now that he's finally getting some significant minutes, we're starting to see how devastating this quickness can be.
He could very well be the team's starting point guard next year, and I don't think it's a stretch to predict at least 15-16 points a game from him.
Winner: Tyler Hansbrough - Indiana Pacers: Hansbrough always produced when he was in the game this past season. For most of the year, he was in a very small role.
When Frank Vogel finally inserted him into the starting lineup, he became one of the league's best energy guys.
He could easily average around 17-18 points and seven or eight rebounds a game.
