Remains one of the better shot-blockers in the league, though his offensive game remains nearly non-existent. Not the best hands down low and a very poor free-throw shooter, so opponents choose to foul him rather than let him dunk.

One of the most physically talented players on this list, bizarre behavior led to Charlotte releasing the former first-round pick. He’ll probably get another shot if he cleans up his act.
