- Linas Kleiza
Kleiza left the NBA to get more money in Europe - it's weird that it's possible this way around now - and is now one of the best players there. He still can't defend either forward position, but he scores prolifically from both. Playing for Olympiakos in Greece, Kleiza is averaging 15.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in only 23 minutes per game in the Greek league (Olympiakos often win in blowouts, and also take advantage of the fact that they go 12 deep), alongside 17.9 points and 6.9 rebounds in 30 minutes per game in the Euroleague. The points per game average leads the Euroleague, and if you're the leading scorer in the second highest standard league in the world, you're a fine player.
