14. Brad Miller

Brad Miller was one of the league’s best passing big men of his time, as he posted averages of 4 assists in five seasons in a row. In addition, Miller averaged double-figures in scoring from 2001 through 2006.

Miller’s career was wildly successful, making two All-Star teams, which isn’t what you’d expect from someone who went undrafted.

Miller was pivotal to the Sacramento Kings’ turnaround in the early 2000s and posted his best season in his opening season with the Kings, averaging 14.1 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists in 2003-04.

The Rockets signed Miller in the 2010 offseason, and realized they didn't have use for him beyond just that season. Miller was a reserve big man in Houston, and averaged 6.4 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.4 assists, while shooting 44.6 percent from the field.
