Travis Diener, aged about 12


Travis Diener - Diener has basically the same skill set and CV as Chris Quinn above. He's even managed five years to Quinn's four, and has been paid above the minimum for the last three of those. But Diener is better than Quinn, and is not just a jumpshooter. The three pointer is pretty much the sum total of his own offense, but Diener can also run a good pick and roll and has a terrific assist/turnover ratio (more than 4.3 to 1 for his career, and more than 5:1 over the last three years). Diener is 28 years old with 179 NBA games with three NBA teams to his name, and while his defense is open season, he's more offensively capable than most minimum salary third string point guard options. Failing that, he could always opt to go star in Israel.
