4. Ish Smith

Ish Smith has been the very definition of a journeyman point guard since he entered the league, but he has managed to make a nice career out of it and really become a solid rotational player. While he’s a lot more known now, he spent time with the Golden State Warriors in the 2011-12 season.

Just to show crazy his career has been, he has been on 10 different teams and 11 total since coming into the league in 2010. Yet, that hasn’t stopped him from being one of the most positive players in the league.

He’s considered one of the best teammates to have and he can dish out plenty of assists. He’s not the biggest guy in the world, but he has great speed and that makes it hard for larger defenders to keep up with him.

By virtue of playing with a third of the league, it’s not a surprise that he spent time with Golden State. At the time, no one would have probably guessed the journey he was about to go on, but it has really paid off well for him.
