With a bit more luck, Kasib Powell could have had a multi-year NBA career by now. He went undrafted out of Texas Tech and has had to scrap for NBA looks since then, getting a few contracts here and there but always losing out in a numbers game. The only 11 NBA games he has ever played were with the Miami Heat, for whom the very comparable Da'Sean Butler will soon be playing. Three games before he signed, this happened:
That happened two years, three months and 21 days ago. And now look at them.

Marcus E. Williams Williams should be in the NBA, and would be, had he not turned down a 10 day contract from the Indiana Pacers. He has been developing his game since leaving Arizona, becoming more of a tall point forward in the Kasib Powell mold. And like Powell, Williams is a fringe NBA talent. The Spurs probably don't even have the room to continue their illicit tryst with him now, either.

- Kasib Powell
Powell played well for the Orlando Magic's summer league team this year, and went to Greece to play for Trikalla this season. He averages 11.9 points and 3.8 rebounds in 10 games for the team, but left in late January. It was said that Powell was to sign in Russia, but it didn't happen, and he remains unsigned.
