Like Clark, Chris Babb was an undrafted free agent following the 2013 NBA Draft. After two years at Penn State, Babb transferred to Iowa State where he was named to the Big-12 All-Defensive Team in 2013.

He signed with the Boston Celtics after the 2013 Summer League but was sent down to the D-League before the beginning of the season. In the D-League, Babb became a standout, earning an All-Star appearance in 2015 as well as All-NBA D-League Second Team honors at the end of the season.

Babb was acquired by the Warriors in the deal that sent David Lee to Boston. Unfortunately, his numbers don’t do him any favors. He averaged just 1.9 points on 26.7 percent shooting, albeit in only 14 pro games. Babb is probably a long shot due to the talent of others fighting for the last roster spot, but could be a viable wing defender if he can crack the preseason rotation.
