Most Disappointing Players in Charlotte Bobcats History
Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp
Coupled with some poor draft selections and a bit of bad luck, the Bobcats have only seen the playoffs once since joining the Association in 2004-05.
Ahead are five of the most disappointing players in Charlotte Bobcats history.

5. Bismack Biyombo
As the No. 7 pick in the 2011 NBA draft, Bismack Biyombo was known as a solid defender on the block and a decent rebounder.
In two seasons, not much has changed.
Biyombo hasn't developed any offensive game and he grabbed 5.8 and 7.3 boards per game, respectively, over the last two seasons. The third-year forward will be expected to develop his game even further entering the 2013-14 season, presumably behind first-round pick Cody Zeller and free-agent acquisition Al Jefferson.
4. Sean May
Handicapped by a chronic knee injury and a lack of conditioning, Sean May's NBA career was cut shorter than it should have been.
The 6'9" forward averaged 8.2 points and 11.2 points, respectively, over his first two years in the league. Following a microfracture surgery that kept him out of the 2007-08 season, May was never the same.
May averaged 3.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in 2008-09 before being traded to the Sacramento Kings.
The former No. 13 overall pick played in just 82 games over three seasons in Charlotte.
3. Tyrus Thomas
Tyrus Thomas, the most recent amnesty casualty, signed a five-year, $40 million deal in 2010.
A defensive specialist, Thomas' defensive rating rose from 96 in 2010 to 102, 106 and 110 over the next three years, respectively. His numbers on the offensive end dropped as well, including an average of 4.8 points and 2.3 rebounds per game in 2012-13.
The 6'9" forward started just two games, played in 26 and earned several "Did Not Plays" last season before the Bobcats cut their losses earlier this summer.
2. Tyson Chandler
Before the 2009-10 season, the Bobcats flipped Emeka Okafor for New Orleans Hornets' Tyson Chandler.
Charlotte thought they were getting a game-changing defensive player, when in actuality, they received an injury-plagued big.
Chandler played in just 51 games, averaging only 6.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
1. Adam Morrison

Adam Morrison, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft, started his career off on a high note.
The rookie averaged 11.8 points per game and looked to have a promising career.
Following an ACL tear in 2007, Morrison struggled to regain his form, averaging just 4.0 points per contest before being shipped to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008-09.
