The Los Angeles Lakers Sign Timofey Mozgov (2016)
Another one of the absolutely hideous contracts signed in the summer of 2016, there was absolutely no rhyme or reason to give center Timofey Mozgov a four-year, $64 million contract, as the Los Angeles Lakers did that summer. It was their way of justifying that they “did something” after striking out on free agent signings for years past.
But Mozgov was a complete waste of money, averaging less than 7.5 points per game in one season in Los Angeles. The Lakers traded him to the Brooklyn Nets the next season. The Nets are still paying for this awful deal.
