6. Willie Cauley-Stein

Willie Cauley-Stein was the sixth-overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft and it's easy to understand why the Sacramento Kings made the selection. WCS has always been very active defensively, due in part to his length.

Cauley-Stein stands 7-feet tall and has a 7-foot-3 wingspan and is uber-athletic. As a matter of fact, he even played wide receiver in high school.

Again, the guy is a freak athletically.

 Cauley-Stein played four seasons with the Kings and averaged 10.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 53.4 percent shooting.

Cauley-Stein bounced around the league and had stints with the Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Rockets signed WCS, as they were looking for depth at the center position and the Kentucky product was still just 29-years-old.

WCS ultimately never took the court for the Rockets, however, he did play for the Rio Grande Vipers, which is the Rockets' G-League affiliate.
