That is insane, but there is only actually 23 as he has Ronnie Brewer listed, but he plays for the Rockets.

In the 2009 draft these are the players that were lottery picks that are no longer in the league

2009

Johnny Flynn
Terrence Williams
(Soon to possible join will be Thabeet after his contract with OKC is done.)

Great to see the Pacers hold on to the win against Brooklyn by 1 point. Also impressive win by the Wizards to hold the Thunder to just 81 points.

Kevin Love finished tonight with with 43 points and 19 boards

Timmy D finished tonight with 23 points and 17 boards.

Impressive stat lines by both guys.

Cavaliers Expected To Shake Up Roster Before Deadline - RealGM Wiretap

Quote:
The turmoil of the Cleveland Cavaliers' season is beginning to get worse, as players are pointing to Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters, along with an unhappiness with Mike Brown and his coaching staff.

“He’s acting like he doesn’t care,” said one unnamed player about Irving.

“It’s pretty much a mess,” one source close to the team said.

Brown has seven assistants, which is causing players to become confused when told different things.

“We’re getting too many mixed messages,” one player said. “This isn’t very much fun. We were losing last year with Byron, but at least we were having fun.”

Two sources indicated that the Cavaliers' roster will likely face upheaval if the team doesn't turn around their situation quickly. Waiters is a possible trade candidate, while Irving will likely receive a max contract offer in the offseason.

Varejao is cursed. The Cavaliers tried to subdue the curse by drafting Anthony Bennett, and signing Andrew Bynum. The Varejao curse is more powerful then Cleveland perceived.

Seems like every single player wants out of Cleveland and looks like they will be gutting their team and starting all over again. How can this franchise fuck up so many time man?

The chaos in Cleveland continues:

Jason Lloyd: Quiet grumbling turns into dissension in troubled Cavs locker room - Cavs - Ohio

Quote:
The rumbles within the Cavaliers locker room have been growing louder for weeks. Players who initially didn’t want to talk about what is plaguing this team are beginning to open up, and most of the issues are pointing back to guards Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters, along with an unhappiness with Mike Brown and his staff.

“He’s acting like he doesn’t care,” one Cavs player said of Irving.

Many players in this story were granted anonymity based on the sensitive nature of the topic.

All of this comes on the heels of a New York Daily News story released Saturday evening reporting that Luol Deng has complained of a locker room out of control.

Players within that locker room are growing louder in their agreement.

“It’s pretty much a mess,” one source close to the team said.

Most of the complaints are focused on Irving and Waiters. One league source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed Waiters was removed from practice recently, per the Daily News report. But Waiters’ minutes weren’t affected by the move, which left at least a handful of players raising their eyebrows — particularly within an organization that has preached accountability since Brown’s arrival.

“That’s Dion. He’s been like that since he got here. He doesn’t think anything is his fault,” one team source said. “He’s actually better about it this year than he was last year.”

In the Daily News report, a source close to Deng said, “The stuff going on in practice would never be tolerated by the coaching staff or the front office back in Chicago. It’s a mess.”

Players have privately complained that Brown’s coaching staff, with at least seven assistants, is too big. An assistant coach will tell a player one thing, then Brown will come back and yell at that player because he wants it done another way.

“We’re getting too many mixed messages,” one player said. “This isn’t very much fun. We were losing last year with Byron, but at least we were having fun.”

Deng said Friday he didn’t believe anyone had given up on Brown as their coach.

“I just think we’re not playing as a unit,” Deng said Friday. “We’re a young team and right now we don’t know how to make each other better.

“When you play as a unit, you cover for a lot of things. When one guy is unhappy with somebody, when you’re out there together as five, no one would talk about this stuff. But right now, since we’re not a unit, you always go for the head of the snake. It’s unfortunate that guys will start talking about the coach and everything. But I’m new here, so they might feel a different way.”

Deng and Waiters were not available before Saturday’s game against the Houston Rockets. Deng typically doesn’t talk before games, and Waiters spent the whole time reporters are allowed in the locker room sitting in the trainer’s room.

Irving denied there are internal problems.

“The chemistry is great,” Irving said before Saturday’s game. “There’s nothing going on within the locker room that needs to be shared with the media.”

Brown shuffled his starting lineup Saturday, inserting Jarrett Jack in place of C.J. Miles with the idea of putting the ball in Jack’s hands more and letting Irving play off the ball.

Asked if that was to prevent Irving from trying to play 1-on-4 so much, one player nodded his head in agreement.

Two sources close to the team confirmed that barring a significant turnaround before the trade deadline, this roster will likely face some upheaval. That very well could include Waiters, whose act has worn thin on his teammates and various members of the organization.

Irving’s behavior has also irritated teammates and other members of the organization, but the Cavs are expected to offer him a max contract extension this summer and aren’t believed to be considering trading him. Two general managers told the Beacon Journal this year that Irving is pouting, something he denied to the Beacon Journal after practice Friday.
