2. Jordan Nwora
Jordan Nwora began his NBA career with the Bucks when they drafted him 45th overall in 2020. While his time in Milwaukee was brief, he still averaged a respectable 6.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.1 threes made on 37.6% shooting across 130 games and even helped the Bucks on the road to their 2020-21 NBA title run.
Nwora's time with the Bucks came to an end in February 2023 when he was traded to the Indiana Pacers in a four-team deal. At first, things looked promising for the former Louisville Cardinal as he averaged 13.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.1 assists on .476/.422/.721 in 24 games with the Pacers to close out the 2022-23 campaign.
But much to Indiana's dismay, Nwora couldn't pick up from where he left off this year. He's averaging 6.2 PTS/2.0 REB/1.0 AST and is only sinking 33.3% of his three-point attempts. A lack of playing time is a key reason behind his regression. After averaging 24.6 minutes with the Pacers last season to 10.9 over just 11 games while being a healthy scratch multiple times in 2023-24.
Unless Indiana starts shipping players away, Nwora's situation likely won't change. His best bet at this point is to hope that the Pacers move him elsewhere for a fresh start.
