Al Jefferson was drafted straight out of high school as the 15th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics. He played three seasons in Boston before being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a package deal for Kevin Garnett in the 2007 offseason.
In Minnesota, he had some of his best years, averaging over 20 points per game in multiple seasons. In 2010, Jefferson was traded to the Utah Jazz, where he continued to be a reliable offensive threat.
After three seasons in Utah, he signed as a free agent with the Charlotte Hornets (known as the Charlotte Bobcats in his first season with the team) in 2013. His first season with the Hornets was a standout, with Jefferson earning All-NBA Third Team honors.

Selected in the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers, Lance Stephenson spent the first four seasons of his career in Indiana. His best season came in 2013-14 when he averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game, and led the NBA in triple-doubles (5).
He was a significant contributor to the Pacers teams that made back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals appearances in 2013 and 2014.
Stephenson later played for several other teams, including the Hornets, Clippers, Grizzlies, Pelicans, and Lakers. Despite bouncing around the league, his dynamic playstyle and sometimes flamboyant on-court antics have made him a memorable figure in the NBA.
Mo Williams is probably best known for his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Williams, a 6’1″ point guard, had a 13-year career that spanned from 2003 to 2017.
Williams had a breakout season with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2006-2007, averaging over 17 points per game. He was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2008, where he played alongside LeBron James and was named an All-Star in 2009. His high-scoring and playmaking ability made him a key part of the Cavaliers’ success during his tenure.
After bouncing around the league in the later stages of his career, Williams briefly rejoined the Cavaliers in 2015 and was part of the team’s championship roster in 2016, providing veteran leadership and depth off the bench.

After five seasons in Seattle, Ridnour moved on to the Milwaukee Bucks, where he spent four seasons before stints with the Timberwolves, Hornets, and Magic.
Throughout his 12 seasons in the NBA, Ridnour provided quality minutes as both a starter and backup point guard, known for his stability and leadership on and off the court.
