- Willie Deane
Deane started last season with Zalgiris in Lithuania, and then moved to Lukoil Akademik in Bulgaria. (That's the only Bulgarian team any relevant players sign for, and it's because they're Bulgaria's best and thus always in the EuroChallenge. Well, except this year.) He averaged 21/5 to finish the season there, and moved to Poland this summer to play for PGE Turow Zgorzelec. Turow released him after 11 Polish league games in which Dean averaged 9.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. He returned to Lukoil Akademik this month to replace Walker Russell, and totalled 12 points and 10 rebounds in his only game for them so far.
