5. Joey Graham, SF, 2005-2009
After drafting Graham with the 16th overall pick in the 2005 draft, the Toronto Raptors were probably expecting the Oklahoma State product to turn into a significant contributor that could make a difference in taking the Bosh-era Raptors from mediocre to playoff contender.
Unfortunately, Graham never blossomed into anything more than another body on Toronto’s bench. He started 20+ games in each of his first two years but failed to do anything with his opportunities, contributing just 6.5 points and 3.1 rebounds per game during those campaigns.
Joey Graham was unimpressive for the Toronto Raptors.
Graham turned out to be a pretty decent role player during his four years in Toronto, but when a player is drafted a guy 16th overall, the franchise that took him is probably hoping for a little bit more than that.
Graham was unable to bring that desired quality to the lineup, and Toronto moved on from the Delaware native in 2009. He was out of the league for good just two years later before reaching the age of 30. Danny Granger getting picked right after him still stings to this day.
