- Erik Daniels
Daniels did a noble job of pretending to be a centre in the D-League last year, averaging 21/10 in the process. He's gone to Ukraine this season, playing with Azovmash. Daniels was initially fighting for one spot with Demetris Nichols, won the race, and has been a key player for the team all season. He averages 14.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.4 European assists per game in the VTB United League, 17/6/3 in the Ukranian league, and 21/10/3 in the Eurocup. Azovmash have had quite a lot of turmoil this season, turning over basically their entire roster over the last few weeks. Yet Daniels has been one of the few constants.

- Former Erie BayHawks guard Maureece Rice has signed in Azovmash in the Ukraine, where he pairs up again with his teammate from last year, Erik Daniels. Azovmash have had a bad year and recently made widespread sweeping changes - Daniels was one of the few to survive - and Rice is a part of the new infusion, trying to elevate Azovmash from their currently underwhelming 9th position in the Ukranian Superleague.
