Terrell Brandon has some skills for a little guy. He was the 11th pick in the first round and ended up being an all-star one year. Over his career, he was best known for playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Milwaukee Bucks as well as the Minnesota Timberwolves.
SCOTT BROOKS – 5-FOOT-11
If you are of a certain age you might just think of Brooks as a head coach in the NBA but he had a long playing career. He played in a total of 680 games, logging time with the Philadelphia 76ers, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks, and Cleveland Cavaliers.
DAMON STOUDAMIRE – 5-FOOT-10
Damon Stoudamire was short, this is true, but he has some pretty good skills. He was picked 7th by the Toronto Raptors and averaged almost 20 points a game over his time with them before he was traded to the Portland Trailblazers. He played 13 years in total.
BREVIN KNIGHT – 5-FOOT-10
Brevin Knight wasn’t known as much of a scorer, in fact, he was a horrible outside shooter but he sure could pass the ball. He was one of the NBA’s leading assist men for years. He played 13 years in the NBA, mostly as a starter. Not bad for a little guy.
AVERY JOHNSON – 5-FOOT-10
Avery Johnson is another guy who most people these days know as a coach, but he had a very solid career. He played for the now-defunct Seattle Supersonics as well as the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, Denver Nuggets, Golden State Warriors, and Dallas Mavericks. He won a championship with the Spurs.
TYUS EDNEY – 5-FOOT-10
Tyus Edney played for the Sacramento Kings, the Boston Celtics, and the Indiana Pacers. He also spent some time playing overseas. Although he never was a star he had a good career, especially for someone with his size who was a late second-round pick.
ANDRE BARRETT – 5-FOOT-10
Another NBA player who is quite possibly shorter than you is Andre Barrett. He was an undrafted journeyman guard over 4 seasons playing for the Houston Rockets, Magic, Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors, and Los Angeles Clippers.
MICHAEL ADAMS – 5-FOOT-10
Michael Adams could fill it up and he could pass a little too. He bounced around the league before exploding for 26.5 points and 10.5 assists per game when he played for the Denver Nuggets. Before making the NBA he was a star at Boston College.
