100% biased right here because im a duke fan (and because i dont know too many guys currently on a team that didnt get drafted), but im going with demarcus nelson. acc defensive player of the year, 1st team all acc, 3rd team all america (NABC), 14.5 points 6 boards 3 assists 1.6 steals senior season.

The thing with Nelson is his size and he doesn't really have a pullup jumpshot. Being a Duke fan too, I've watched nelson alot. I know he playes bigger than his listed size but he's just too short as a two guard in the nba. He did sign with a good team to get an opportunity though, so hopefully that will help him. Maybe he can find a spot as a defensive stopper.

Noch is very good. He is a good Defender, Solid Scorer, and brings an extra amount of energy no one else Can. Big Ben Used to be Good, Back when he wasnt old and worn out. Bell is also pretty good. Miller is good. IDN, There have been plenty of solid players who have been undrafted. I dont know who is best. Probably Big Ben for what he has acomplished and Noch on Talent. But noch may be a lil Biased

Yeah, I thought he would latch on somewhere, because of his defensive abilities and athleticism. But hes a pretty terrible shooter, but yeah, hes very short and doesn't have the handles of a pg, but i think theres a possibility he'll end up in the NBA some day.

Brad Miller.

He is a 13/10/4 center. How many centers dish out 4 assists per game?

I thought the question was to ever "PLAY" in the nba. And how many nba games has he played in?
