Troy Daniels

Daniels enters his seventh season in the NBA and his first with the Los Angeles Lakers. He just finished a two-year stint with the Phoenix Suns where he averaged 8 points and shot almost 40% from 3-point range. He appeared in two preseason games this season and looked sharp for the new-look Lakers, averaging 9 points.

Treveon Graham

This offseason, Graham was part of a slew of deals that sent him to the Golden State Warriors and then to his current team, the Minnesota Timberwolves, the next day. Graham has a chance to start for the Timberwolves on opening day after averaging 10 points and shooting 50% from 3-point range. 

Briante Weber

After working out with NBA teams this summer, Weber opted to head overseas and sign with the Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans in France. Through four games, he is bringing to them what he brought to VCU every time he put on the black and gold — hounding defense. Weber is averaging more than four steals per game so far, including two games in which he recorded five steals.

Justin Tillman

In January, Tillman signed with the Memphis Grizzlies G-league affiliate, the Memphis Hustle. He appeared in eight games for them and averaged almost 9 points. Then, Tillman took his talents overseas this summer and signed with Hapoel Galil Gilboa in Israel. They have only played one game, but Tillman helped carry the team to victory by scoring 24 points on 12-15 shooting and 11 rebounds.

Michael Gilmore

This summer, Gilmore found a new home to take his talents to after his return to VCU for his senior year: German professional team Phoenix Hagen. Gilmore is already making an impact for his new team with 11 points in 20 minutes against the PS Karlsruhe Lions on Sept. 28.

JeQuan Lewis

Lewis started for the Goyang Orions in the Korean league last year, where he averaged 14.5 points and 5.8 assists. He then moved to Greece to play for Kymis where he averaged almost 13 points and 5.7 assists. At the end of August, it was announced that he was going to be joining his third team in less than a year when he joined PAOK in the same Greek league he was previously in. He logged a game-high 10 assists in their first win of the season.

Mo Alie-Cox

The continued growth of Alie-Cox is apparent with every snap he plays. He has become a dynamic run-blocking tight end for the Indianapolis Colts in his third year with the organization. Last year, he saw his first snaps during a regular-season game and was quickly making highlight-reel grabs, including a one-handed touchdown catch against the Oakland Raiders in his fourth career game. This year, he has logged four catches as the third-string tight end for the Colts.
