6. Terrell Brandon - 20.5

Aside from Williams, Terrell Brandon is likely the other unbeknownst player on the list. What makes Brandon different is the numerous years of sustained success. Brandon began his career as a lottery pick in 1991.

He played six seasons for the team that drafted him—the Cleveland Cavaliers—and appeared in two All-Star games and averaged 12.7 points per game as a Cavalier. After Cleveland, Brandon spent a season and a half in Milwaukee before departing to Minnesota.

In Minnesota, Brandon turned into one of the best passers in the league. After averaging just 4.9 assists per game throughout his career in Cleveland, Brandon averaged 9.8 assists in 21 games for the Timberwolves in 1999.

In his first full season as a Timberwolf, the 5-foot-11 guard averaged 8.9 assists and 1.9 steals per game. Despite coming to Minnesota solely because of a Marbury trade request, his addition paid dividends.

The Wolves achieved their first 50-win season in franchise history with Brandon at the helm. Unfortunately, Brandon only appeared in 202 games for the Wolves before injuries forced him to retire.
