    To make us all feel better about our team let's see what is going around with some dump desperate teams. Vote for who you think has been the worse contract in Free Agency so far.

    Is it Mozgov a broken down 30 year old who is coming from a failed knee surgery and couldn't even get minutes in blowouts last year?
    Is it Noah another broken down 30 year old who peaked 3 years ago and teams completely ignore in offence?

    Is it Solo Hill a scrub who many analysts wonder if he even belongs in the league who just got some minutes in the playoffs and made tens of millions out of it?
    Is it Evan Turner who can't defend or shoot and needs the ball in his hands?

    Or is it Luol Deng a 31 year old who is about to get paid till he's 35?

    Bradley Beal the new Derrick Rose a contender for being paid 1 Million for every game he plays in the next 5 years?

    Or perhaps it's Mike Conley who is going to get paid 30+ when he's well over 30.

    I think there is a strong case for Chandler Parsons too. If he comes back healthy then I don't have much a problem with his contract in this market. But his health is looking very questionable.

    Good thread and valid questions. However, I didn't quite get how you calculated that Bradley Beal salary? According to my calculations 5 years of regular season games only already make 410 games. If you estimate that he will be healthy only in about 1/3 of those games, you're pretty close.

    Giving a max to a player who can't stay healthy is insane.

    lol it was a joke but..who knows? When you are into a minutes restriction at 23 and can't finish a season healthy? It's certainly a possibillity.

    Ryan Anderson

    Some others are even worse, but I don't mind that because it's other teams...

    I even like Ryan Anderson as a player, but the money is just stupid.

    I'm a Laker fan and I voted Mozgov

    Though at this point there's honestly no other way we're gonna meet cap besides dishing out bad contracts

    I really don't understand what the rockets are doing. Pau Gasol is setting out their, but ya'll went with Eric Gordon?

    Heck, I'd have even went Rondo and Pau, would have been a better fit.

    Almost all contracts handed out so far are bad deals.

    I think the worst are definitely Teletovic and Delly. Just horrible contracts, terrible signings. :p

    The worst are

    Mozgof
    Toliver
    S.Hill
    Mahinmi

    Just not talented enough for the contracts they got IMO.

    I can't edit the poll and since then there have been some new significant contenders for worst contract of the summer.
    Not only Rhyno form the Rockets but Crawford 3/42 and Rivers 3/36

    I still think the Mozgov and Noah deals have the most potential of being total trainwrecks since the players are old injured and broken down bigs.
