4. Monte Morris

After spending the first five seasons of his career with the Denver Nuggets, Monte Morris spent all of last season with the Washington Wizards where he was a mainstay in the team's starting lineup. Starting the current season with the Detroit Pistons, Morris appeared in just six games with the team before being traded to the Timberwolves in February.

He was acquired by Minnesota in exchange for Troy Brown Jr. and Shake Milton. Both of those players were new to the Wolves as of last summer, and had largely underperformed their expectations according to Minnesota's management.

In the team's mind, their logical next move was to find a player who could handle the ball that was a seasoned veteran and could provide some stability by the time the playoffs rolled around. Monte made perfect sense, and he has been solid for the Wolves over the course of the final 27 games of the regular season.

Playing in the backup point guard role, Morris has done exactly what the team needed him to do: control the offense in limited minutes and find his teammates for easy shots. He has done exactly that for a championship-caliber team, showing that he can still play a meaningful role on a team trying to win a title.
