Albert Miralles - 39th pick, 2004
Left Badalona to have a finger operation 18 months ago, and yet has not played since. Has had two subsequent operations on the same finger, and seems to be coaching camps. There is a chance that a continued campaign of rehab will lead to him having an NBA calibre finger some day soon, but the window has long since closed for the rest of him.

Albert Miralles (39th pick, 2004)

- Miralles was drafted after a 6.5 point, 4.7 rebound season in Serie A at the age of 22. He spent another year in Italy, then returned to Spain to spend 4 years with Valencia. However, Valencia outgrew him, becoming one of the best teams in Europe, as evidenced by their 2010 Eurocup win and subsequent strong Euroleague campaign. Miralles thus moved to the less prestigious ACB team of Lagun Aro, for whom he has averaged 8.3 points and 6.4 rebounds in 24.9 minutes per game this season. He hustles, and self-evidently rebounds, but his offensive game never developed much, and nor does he have great physical tools. His defense is all effort and fouls.

Miralles was initially drafted by the Raptors, before his rights were traded to Miami in exchange for the rights to Pape Sow and a future second round pick. He was then a filler part of the 13 player trade that landed Antoine Walker in Miami, as was the 2008 second pick later used on Nikola Pekovic, which Boston gave to Minnesota as a part of the deal for Wally Szzerbiak and a 2009 first round pick, which was later returned to Minnesota as a part of the trade for Kevin Garnett. Unless you believe that Miami could have won the 2006 title without making the Antoine trade - he didn't exactly help in optimum fashion - then it could be argued that Albert Miralles helped build title teams in both Miami and Boston. Not so much in Toronto, though.

- Albert Miralles

The 39th overall pick in the 2004 draft, ahead of players such as Chris Duhon or Trevor Ariza, Miralles had spent the last 4 years with Valencia. But Valencia replaced him with Sergei Lishouk this summer (49th pick in the same draft), so Miralles had to move on, eventually moving to fellow ACB team Lagun Aro Gipuzkoa BC. He is having a better season there, averaging 8.1 points and 5.0 rebounds in 20.8 minutes per game and shooting 55% from the floor. However, he still can't stop fouling, averaging 3.2 fouls per game.
