D’Angelo Russell, Los Angeles Lakers (2015)
After being named to the NBA’s All-Rookie Second Team at the end of his first season in the NBA, D’Angelo Russell had miserable sophomore season. He missed 19 games with a balky knee, and alienated his teammates when he alienated his teammates after a feud with former teammate Nick Young involving Young’s then fiancee Iggy Azalea. The situation got so bad that LA had to trade the former #2 pick in the draft away on the night of the 2017 NBA Draft. In Brooklyn last year, Russell continued to deal with knee injuries, missing almost half the season (34 games) while seeing his scoring average actually take a slight step back.
