Career Years: 2003-Present
Career Lowlight: Traded by Detroit for journeyman Kelvin Cato.
Another draft day disaster, Darko was taken by the Pistons in 2003 ahead of the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. It was thought that he had the ball skills of a guard with the size of an elite center, and would revolutionize the position. As it turns out, the only thing he revolutionized was benchwarming; he played in just 96 games during his three seasons with the Pistons, and has never averaged more than 8.8 points per game in his NBA career.
