NBA Teams That Are Still Paying the Price for Huge Offseason Mistakes

In the NBA, a big offseason mistake can have plenty of negative consequences, some of which last for years after the decision. 

The six teams featured here are all experiencing the unhappy ramifications of moves that happened last offseason, or even earlier in some cases. While the moves and trades might not have seemed too bad then, hindsight is 20/20. 

As if regret for the past wasn't bad enough already, the present is now affected. 

Three of the squads remain strong playoff teams, but they're still worse off than they could have been. Had these huge offseason mistakes not occurred, we may be talking about each of them as title contenders, or at the very least, rock-solid clubs. 

The other three aren't so lucky, but they'd still be in far better shape had the past not occurred. It's best they pay attention, because as we all know, those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
