Right now you’re asking why some dude you’ve never heard of is a part of this list. That’s a fair point. The highlight of Dewayne Dedmon’s career at this point was back in 2014 when he was an All-Star…in the D-League.

So why should you care about this guy?

Well, last season the former USC standout showed flashes of the player who finished ninth in program history with 85 career blocks.

Dedmon led the Magic in block percentage, defensive rebound percentage, total rebound percentage, and defensive box plus-minus (stats via b-ball reference).

On offense, the 27-year-old big man was lethal on the pick and roll finishing in the 96th percentile of roll man efficiency. His skill in moving without the ball contributed to him finishing 64.9% of his attempts in the restricted area.

Dedmon’s move from Orlando to the perennial contender, San Antonio Spurs, will lead to good things.
