There are some stars who get riddled with consecutive injuries, while there are others who just don't pan out with their respective teams. With that said, let's take a look at the five worst contracts heading into the upcoming 2020-21 NBA season.
The championship-aspiring Philadelphia 76ers saw their 2019-20 campaign come to an abrupt, embarrassing end with a first-round playoff exit at the hands of rivals Boston Celtics. This wasn't the plan when they acquired Josh Richardson and Al Horford last offseason, on top of extending Tobias Harris' contract.
The Philadelphia 76ers trusted the process, but it didn't end the way they wanted it to. Playing without their injured all-around point forward in Ben Simmons, the Sixers never stood a chance against the Boston Celtics and got swept.
