Tony Gaffney

Gaffney hasn't played in the NBA for three years, but continues to get these looks. He spent last year with Joventut Badalona in Spain, averaging 11.5 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.3 blocks per game. Gaffney could play in the NBA in a role similar to Evans (though certainly not identical, given that very few do what Evans does), but it'd help his cause considerably to put away the jumpshot, or at least be more selective with it. In trying to prove he could hit the outside shot last season, Gaffney only proved that he couldn't, hitting 25% of his threes on more than three attempts per game.

Tony Gaffney - Gaffney was an early cut by the Celtics in preseason, and moved to Turkey to play for Turk Telekom. He did not stay long, however; after only two months, averaging 6.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 8 Turkish league games, he has left the team and gone to the D-League. At the time of writing, Gaffney has yet to join any specific D-League team.

[I]n any other circumstance, Tony Gaffney would have won a roster spot last season, for he did enough to win everybody over. But because the Lakers had decided they wouldn't carry a 14th player, he didn't. Gaffney had done everything right to win that spot; the only thing he couldn't do was engineer a salary dump trade of Luke Walton. Because that didn't happen, Gaffney didn't stick.

Tony Gaffney

Gaffney is the ultimate late bloomer, exploding onto the scene out of nowhere in his senior season at Massachusetts, and losing out on a roster spot with the Lakers only because of budget constraints. He signed with the Celtics for the last two days of the season, and although he didn't get to play at all, he did get a few grand for his troubles and a brilliant front row seat during the Celtic's championship run. Gaffney could become what the Celtics were hoping Bill Walker would, although he's not the shooter Walker is. If he can just roam around winning possessions for the team, just like he did at Mass, then he'll be fine.

- Tony Gaffney

Even before he signed with the L.A. Lakers for training camp, Massachusetts graduate Gaffney had signed with Galil Gilboa in Israel. The team let him come back to America for camp, and he rejoined them after the Lakers waived him. However, Gaffney played in only one game for the team before breaking his foot. He was released from his contract and is now back in America rehabbing.
