Jimmer Fredette cracks this list, but just barely. He rode the bench with the dysfunctional Sacramento Kings, and now rides the bench with the hardworking Chicago Bulls. It's a change of scenery, and now Fredette is surrounded by veterans who know how to win.

Although he hasn't made much of an impact since signing with the Memphis Grizzlies, Beno Udrih ultimately got his wish when he was bought out by the New York Knicks. Expect him to be some sort of a factor for the Grizzlies before their season ends.

After a handful of seasons with the Orlando Magic, Glen “Big Baby” Davis wanted to move on to greener pastures and sign with a playoff team. With his former Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers in Los Angeles, “Big Baby” decided to sign with the Clippers. He's great insurance in case Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan go down.

Just like “Big Baby” Davis, once Danny Granger was bought out by the Philadelphia 76ers, he didn't hesitate too long to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers. Granger, along with Davis, Jamal Crawford and Darren Collison, give the Clippers the deepest and scariest bench in the NBA.

When the Milwaukee Bucks acquired Caron Butler and O.J. Mayo, they expected the duo to be adequate replacements for the losses of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings. However, the Bucks' plan backfired and after having the worst record in the NBA, Butler bolted for the Oklahoma City Thunder. He now fills the void that James Harden left last season.
