Free agency is built upon NBA teams taking risks.
However, year after year, some teams take it to the extreme. Some teams make moves in which the risk outweighs the reward.
The 2013 free-agency period was no different. When a guy like Monta Ellis, who's both enticing and inefficient, is up for grabs, how could it not be?
Here, we'll evaluate the risk in the Dallas Mavericks' signing of Ellis, as well as the six other most dangerous moves from this summer.
Note: Andrew Bynum was not included because, while risky, his contract was for two years, $24 million. The second year is a team option, and only $6 million is guaranteed.
