48. Eric Williams

The Celtics drafted Eric Williams 14th Overall out of Providence in 1995, and he played his first two seasons in the NBA there.  Williams was a starter in his second season and averaged an even 15.0 Points per Game, but he would be traded to the Denver Nuggets after where a torn ACL would see him only play 42 Games in two seasons there.

The Nuggets would trade Williams back to Boston, but he was in more of a bench capacity in his second run, which lasted over four seasons.  Williams was traded to Cleveland during the 2004-05 season, and overall he would play 462 Games for Boston and averaged 9.2 Points per Game.
