Jake Voskuhl - Voskuhl lost out on a spot in training camp to Jarron Collins. He has remained unsigned since, and is increasingly far removed from his last decent NBA season.

Collins played with the Suns last year, doing his customary thing of neither rebounding nor scoring, just playing the intangible defense that can't be measured statistically. This is fine in theory, although it led to rather unattractive +/- numbers, and a PER of a career low 3.8. This, however, still doesn't touch Jake Voskuhl's career low PER of 0.4, set in 2008/09 with the Raptors, a season in which he had 60 fouls and 35 points. Voskuhl did not play anywhere last season, and really needs to catch a second wind. He is still only 32, so one is possible; he was a reasonable enough player for many years for one to be possible. If he does not make the team, he will allegedly go to the D-League.

Despite his 0.7 PER for Toronto last year, Dallas brought in Voskuhl for training camp, and reportedly really liked him. So much so that they considered opening up a roster spot for him. They didn't succeed in this aim - getting only as far as trading Nathan Jawai to Minnesota before deciding to keep Shawne Williams solely for his expiring contract - and Voskuhl has not signed elsewhere since. Even when Dallas traded Williams and Kris Humphries to New Jersey for Eduardo Najera, thereby opening up that coveted roster spot, Voskuhl didn't get it; the Mavericks signed Von Wafer instead, and then filled the spot later with their trade with the Wizards. Voskuhl has thus remained unsigned all season. The Nuggets considered him, but went elsewhere.
