13. Dewayne Dedmon

Dedmon just had his second stint with San Antonio, but he did not play a game for the team. He was traded to the Spurs at the deadline, so the Heat could create an open roster spot. Dedmon was bought out two days later and eventually signed with the Sixers.

The seven-footer was first with the Spurs in the 2016-17 season where he was a backup center behind Pau Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge. Dedmon averaged 5.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks in 17.5 minutes per game as he helped the Spurs reach the conference finals.

It was a career-high in minutes to that point, and he parlayed that into a two-year $14.1 million contract with the Hawks in the summer of 2017.

The 33-year-old is past his prime, but he will likely find a role as a third-string center for next season. Dedmon's sights are likely to be set on signing with a contender to chase a ring.
