- Elton Brown - Virginia forward Brown has had NBA looks before, with the Knicks, Bobcats, Bulls and Magic amongst others. Three years ago he was once of the best players in the D-League, averaging as-near-as-is 20/10 for the Colorado 14ers. However, his stock has cooled considerably since then; last year in Germany, Brown averaged only 8/4 for Brose Baskets Bamberg, and apparently completely forgetting how to shoot a foul shot (50%).

Brown didn't have a good year last year. After tearing up the D-League in 2007-08, Brown signed with the Chicago Bulls for 2008 training camp, but then performed something awful in preseason and was released. (Not that it would have mattered; Darius Washington had an awesome preseason, yet he was waived too in favour of Michael Ruffin, who had missed all preseason with an ankle injury and who never played for the team.) Brown then went to Maccabi Tel-Aviv, yet he fell victim to the same regime change as Esteban Batista did, and barely played for the team. Things perked up at the end of the season when Brown joined up with Brose Baskets Bamberg in Germany, and he's still there, averaging 9.1 points and 5.6 rebounds this season.
