2004 -- Vassillis Spanoulis, 6-4, Greece; Mavs took him and
he’s never been heard from.

Poor grammar and worse information. Traded to Houston on draft night. Played in Greece for a few years and then signed with Houston. Took a pay cut to for an NBA chance. Played one season. He and Van Gundy never clicked. Traded to San Antonio and allowed to buy his release. Returned to Greece with with a pay raise and led the team to a championship and the league in assists. Played on the Greek National Team that defeated Team USA to get a Silver at the World Championships.

This guy has a great basketball resume but timing and money never worked for the NBA.

I am only a casual fan and remember him playing for Houston.
