The San Antonio Spurs have had their fair share of great rotation players over the years who have been key to helping the team compete. In fact, without great rotation players, it's safe to say that the Spurs would have won fewer championships.

On the other hand, not every rotation player can be great or even good, and the Spurs have also had their fair share of them too, especially in recent seasons. So who cracks the list of worst rotation players of recent memory? Here's my top five, ranked from best to worst.

5. Bryn Forbes

Defensive issues have placed Bryn Forbes on this list despite him actually being a pretty good offensive player. After all, he's a career 41% 3-point shooter and has added a decent floater to his game allowing him to score some inside the arc. Still, he has a net rating of -4.7 this season for a reason, and it's because the Spurs' defense gets lit up like a Christmas tree when he's on the floor.

Fortunately, he isn't starting for the Spurs anymore as he did for three seasons during his previous stint, limiting the amount of damage he can cause. Unfortunately, Forbes, even in smaller doses, can still get worked, even when playing against opposing benches.

Ultimately, I expect him not to be re-signed next offseason. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets moved in a potential Thad Young deal or a smaller deal for a second-round pick. As crazy as it may sound, a playoff team could think that he could help them, but we all know the truth after years of watching him.
