15. Nikoloz Tskitishvili, Nuggets/Dajuan Wagner, Cavs Nos. 5 and 6, First Round –- 2002
Seemingly they were complete opposites. Tskitishvili was supposed to be a do-it-all 7-footer, someone who could finish in transition and score in bunches from the outside. He was also a foreign product who few had seen play extensively; as even his European teams had kept him confined to the pine. Wagner had a Sports Illustrated write-up dedicated to him by the time he was 17 and had spent most of his youth dominating AAU tournaments and high school camps. Neither pedigree contributed to NBA success.
