Dejuan Wagner is one of the biggest draft busts in Cleveland Cavaliers history. Selected sixth overall in the 2002 NBA Draft - the year before the Cavs won the lottery and took LeBron James - Wagner dealt with injuries and suffered from ulcerative colitis, a disease that caused Wagner to hospitalized. Wagner, partly due to his illness, was out of the NBA by 2006 and hasn't really be heard from since.

Wagner, who is now 32, is still, somehow, playing professionally. To be more exact, Wagner is semi-professional basketball player in the AmeriLeague according to Alex Kennedy of the Basketball Insiders.

Keep getting those checks, Dajuan.
