2. Danny Green
The San Antonio Spurs swingman’s NBA career really only took off four years ago. Drafted in 2009 by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round, Green played sparingly as a rookie before being waived. The following season, he signed with the Spurs and was waived six days later. That’s when he became a fixture in the D-League, primarily with the Reno Big Horns. During the 2010-11 season, Green was called up by the Spurs, where he has remained a key rotation ever since and helping San Antonio beat the Miami Heat in the 2013 NBA Finals. Over 19 games in the D-League, Green averaged 20.6 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
