6. Brandon Knight

Although Brandon Knight is known for making boneheaded players and getting crossed over by Kyrie Irving, he actually had a solid NBA career.

In nine seasons in the NBA, Knight averaged 14.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.9 rebounds, and 0.9 steals per game. His best season came in the 2015-16 season with the Phoenix Suns, as he averaged 19.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 5.1 assists, but by the time he got to Dallas, he was in his thirties.

This would mark Knight's final stop in the NBA before heading overseas.

In five games for the Mavs, Knight averaged 6.4 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game. Dallas signed him to two separate 10-day contracts during the 2021-22 season and decided not to sign him to another one.

Knight showed flashes during his time with the Mavs, as he had 18 points against the Portland Trailblazers. This was a weird time though as players were constantly going on the NBA's COVID-19 list, and he didn't play well enough for Dallas to keep him around.

Knight had an up-and-down NBA career that was a bit plagued by injury, but it seems that he will always be remembered for his appearances on Shaqtin' a Fool instead of his productive seasons in the league.
