Year: 2002
Contract: 7 years, $70 million

Raef LaFrentz was a solid big man. He blocked shots and also could step out the three-point line and make plays off the dribble or as a catch and shoot player. The problem was the injuries and the ineffectiveness of LaFrentz. He was a good player, but sometimes teams forget how long of a commitment seven years is. Somehow the Mavericks were able to offload his contract in 2003 in a trade to the Boston Celtics that sent Antoine Walker to Dallas.
