Poll: Which Offseason Signing Looks The Worst?

November 16 2012 at 4:41pm CDT By Luke Adams

Yesterday, I examined some early returns on the biggest free agent contracts signed this summer, noting that at least a couple of them were looking a little shaky early in the season. Eric Gordon's injury woes and Roy Hibbert's on-court struggles have ensured that those contracts look the worst of the maximum-salary deals handed out in the offseason.

If I'd kept going down the list of free agent signees though, I would've come cross a few more players who are off to poor starts after signing for big bucks. Ersan Ilyasova has recorded a dismal 4.4 PER for the Bucks so far after inking a five-year contract to remain with the club. Landry Fields' and Jeff Green's deals were panned even when they were signed, and neither looks a whole lot better now — Fields is sidelined with an elbow injury, while Green is off to a slow start in Boston.

Is there a specific summer free agent signing that you believe is headed for disaster? Submit your vote in the poll and weigh in below in the comments section with your thoughts.
