The Brooklyn Nets, L.A. Clippers, L.A. Lakers, New Orleans Hornets and Phoenix Suns are now all experiencing second thoughts about the signings they made this offseason.
At the time, the handful of teams in question thought they were taking on players whose talents could significantly help the franchise.
Brooklyn figured there was no harm in a max-contract for Joe Johnson, given he could produce 20/5/5 when playing his best ball.
The Lakers saw in Steve Nash a guy who just doesn't age.
The Hornets thought they had a perennial All-Star on the injury list, not a perennially injured player who may never be an All-Star.
The Suns thought they were adding a potential star, not someone who would jack up ill-fated, poor shots.
And the Clippers thought veteran leadership would add depth.
All of these teams are now experiencing buyer's remorse. Let's look closer at the players involved and just how poorly they are performing (if they are even on the court) for their respective teams.
