Washington Wizards: 10 Worst Roster Moves of the Past 10 Years
Rafael Suanes-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA is a tricky business, and Washington Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld has struggled at times in the past 10 years to remain consistently on the good side of it.

Grunfeld has served as the president of basketball operations since then-majority Owner Abe Polin fired Michael Jordan from the role in 2003. Grunfeld now runs the show in Washington, and he has been in full control since he was re-signed to a multiyear extension on Oct. 5, 2006.

There's no doubting he brought the franchise some great years, particularly the always exciting and unpredictable Gilbert Arenas era of 2004-2008. DC's "big four" of Arenas, Antawn Jamison and equal parts Caron Butler and Larry Hughes brought four consecutive playoff appearances for the Wiz.

And in a testament to Grunfeld, all four were either signed or acquired via trade. 

Though three former NBA draft selections received late-end and honorable mention rankings on this slideshow, the goal was to avoid draft selections when ranking Grunfeld's worst.

He has, after all, been known to make his trades interesting enough that no other material should be necessary.
