- Travis Watson

Since leaving Virginia in 2003, Watson has never made the NBA in any capacity beyond summer league. He's had a decent European career, though, mostly in Italy and Greece. This year, Watson moved to Lithuania to play for Zalgiris, and that move led to his finest achievement yet; he led the Euroleague in rebounds. Watson averaged 10.6 points and 9.5 rebounds in only 24 minutes per game, beating Aleks Maric into second place at only 8.4 rpg. The rest of the top ten is rounded out by former NBA players or former NBA draft picks; Lawrence Roberts, Linas Kleiza, Robertas Javtokas, Viktor Khryapa, Qyntel Woods, Mario Kasun, Mike Batiste and Antonis Fotsis. Watson also averaged 14.2/8.3 in the Baltic league, 7.0/5.8 in the Lithuanian league and 12.8/10.2 in the VTB United League, and is pretty much good for a double double whichever European league he's playing in. In fact, he kind of resembles a slightly taller [Clarence Weatherspoon].
