Undrafted NBA Free Agents 2017: Predictions for Top Prospects Available | Bleacher Report, John Starks, Ben Wallace and Brad Miller: What do they have in common? In case the headline didn't give it away, all three players were undrafted free agents who eventually latched on with an NBA team...

Baylor power forward Johnathan Motley was the highest-ranked player on Jonathan Wasserman's big board to not get selected in the draft.

Motley was a force to be reckoned with for a Baylor team that had next to no expectations coming into the season (it didn't even receive a vote in the Associated Press preseason poll).

The 6'9", 230-pound player averaged 17.3 points and 9.9 rebounds for the Bears, who made the Sweet Sixteen before running into a buzzsaw (the scorching-hot South Carolina Gamecocks).

Motley had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in April, which hindered his draft stock. But, if he can return to his old form, then a lucky team will be getting a force to be reckoned with down low.

The guess as to who that lucky team will be? After throwing a dart on a board, the guess here is the Oklahoma City Thunder, who could use some more depth and toughness in the paint.
