Bill Simmons' 25 Worst Contracts


Thought it only fair to give JoD credit where credit is due.  If I'm not mistaken, he is the only GM in the league to have four players on Bill Simmons' 25 Worst Contracts this year:

Just for fun, the 25 worst contracts in the league that have 3-plus years or at least $25 million remaining. I didn't have the heart to put Kevin Garnett (3 years, $56.5 million) in here even though he belongs. I am in denial.

25. Jose Calderon -- four years, $37.6m
24. Andrei Kirilenko -- two years, $34.3m
23. Jason Richardson -- two years, $27.7m
22. Corey Maggette -- four years, $39.8m
21. Peja Stojakovic -- two years, $27.6m
20. Kirk Hinrich -- three years, $26.5m
19. Matt Carroll -- four years, $16.4m
18. Rasheed Wallace -- three years, $19m
17. Andres Nocioni -- three years, $21m
16. Charlie Villanueva -- five years, $40m
15. Jason Maxiell -- four years, $20m
14. Luke Walton -- four years, $21.5m
13. Francisco Garcia -- four years, $23.2m
12. Hedo Turkoglu -- five years, $53m
11. Baron Davis -- four years, $53.7m
10. Boris Diaw -- three years, $27m
9. Richard Hamilton -- four years, $48.5m
8. Richard Jefferson -- two years, $29m
7. Michael Redd -- two years, $35.3m
6. Ben Gordon -- five years, $55m
5. Desagana Diop -- four years, $26.8m
4. Rashard Lewis -- four years, $80.4m
3. Emeka Okafor -- five years, $63m
2. Elton Brand -- four years, $66m
1. Gilbert Arenas -- five years, $96m

To be fair, I think that Maxiell's contract would have been better had we actually committed to making him our 1st big off the bench.  Instead, JoD signed CV, and shortly thereafter realized that CV may not deserver starter minutes thus pushing Maxiell further back.  I really think if Max had consistency in minutes, he'd be a solid 8/7/1.5 type big with some great help d to go along with it.
