Current team: Atlanta Hawks

Years with the Jazz: 2000-2003

2012-13 stats: 20.7 mpg, 5.1 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 37.4 FG%

Playoff prognosis: Utah's first-ever draft pick straight out of high school is on his third team in three years since Washington purged the team that was photographed performing a rendition of a DC-style shootout after word leaked that guns were bandied about in the locker room.

Like Korver, Stevenson would ideally provide a decent outside stroke, as well as some perimeter defense, to a Hawks team that doesn't have much perimeter depth beyond Lou Williams.

He did just that in Game 1, hitting both 3-point attempts and snagging four rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench. Atlanta would undoubtedly like a little more production from him, but low production at high efficiency is better than the alternative from the up-and-down veteran.
