- Marcus Slaughter
Slaughter is in France, playing for Nancy. France is a good place to go if you're an athletic 6'8 power forward, and Slaughter is producing, averaging 13.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals in only 23 minutes per game. He is shooting 64% from the field and 71% from the line, putting up a massive PER of 25.9.
Nancy also have forward Louisville forward Ricardo Greer, who is one of the best players in the country. Greer is 9th in the league in points (15.9ppg), 4th in rebounds (8.9rpg), 4th in assists (6.1apg) and 5th in steals (1.9spg). Of all the people we've covered in this 61 installment list - which is about 650 players in total so far - I can't think of another that has ranked in top 4 of any of the big 5 categories. Ricardo's brother Jeff also plays there, but he averages a comparatively paltry 12/4/2.
