Mario Hezonja, Orlando Magic (2015)
Only the Orlando Magic franchise could take a highly-touted prospect known for his fearless shooting and scoring, and turn him into a player who can’t shoot or score in the NBA. Leading up to the 2015 NBA Draft, Mario Hezonja was viewed as a super-confident scorer who could become a lethal shooter and dynamic finisher around the rim. But after showing a scant few flashes in his rookie year, Hezonja languished on the bench for much of his second season, starting in only two games all year.
While Hezonja did see something of an uptick this past season in terms of scoring (a career-high 9.6 points per game) and playing time (22.1 minutes per game), Orlando declined Hezonja’s fourth year option, meaning Hezonja will almost certainly leave via free agency this summer.
