#10 Kelly Olynyk
It kind of went under the radar, largely because his team struggled, but Olynyk played really well after getting traded to Houston. He scored in double figures in all but one of the 27 games he appeared in with the Rockets and averaged 19.0 points on 54.5 percent shooting from the field, which is outstanding for someone who takes an abundance of his shots from beyond the arc. It remains to be seen whether Olynyk, who is 30 years old, will be a part of the Rockets' long-term plans. But, this could be another instance where a trade benefitted the “sellers” more than the “buyers.” Victor Oladipo, who went to Miami in the deal, is out for the season with a knee injury after appearing in only four games with the Heat.
