Shedding underappreciated talent is a great way for an NBA team to improve its assets. Here are five players that can really pay off for enterprising GMs.

It’s relatively easy for good NBA front offices to find good players with high-draft picks. The real trick is to secure meaningful contributors with non-premium draft assets.

This is why scouring the draft for sleepers is so important for any team looking to improve their fortunes. Sometimes these prospects aren’t ready to play crucial minutes right away, but they have the long-term ability to become high-level players for title contenders.

Fans looking for sleepers that can transform into impact players need look no further than this list. The following five guys have a chance to drastically improve on their draft position.

5. Bryce McGowens

McGowen’s had a somewhat turbulent collegiate career, but one thing the great Nebraska guard can do is put the ball in the basket efficiently. He’ll never make a great creator, but teams looking for that extra scoring punch at the perimeter should really think twice about landing him late in Round 1 or early in Round 2.

The three-ball didn’t go down for the McGowens in college, but his shot looks comfortable. Combine that with his pro body and it’s easy to see how he can really trouble next-level defenders.

The bottom line about McGowens is that there just aren’t many guards his size willing to jump right in and score as a rookie. He has some obvious weaknesses as a dealer that artificially depresses his draft inventory. Focusing on what they can do instead of what they can’t does pays off for a smart front office.
