2.) Richard Jefferson

There has been a trend of fruitless trades throughout this list, and it continues with Richard Jefferson. With the Spurs looking to remain relevant in the Western Conference, the organization shipped Bruce Bowen, Fabricio Oberto, and Kurt Thomas to Milwaukee to add another reliable scoring punch to their rapidly aging roster. Though this marriage wasn't a complete disaster, it was far from seamless.

Jefferson struggled to find his footing alongside Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili as Head Coach Gregg Popovich often stationed him in the corner as a catch-and-shoot threat. Becoming a 3-and-D role player was a challenging transition for someone who spent their prime with the ball in their hands, and underperforming on a $14.2 million income hardly ingratiated him to the fanbase.
