NBA's worst cap-killing contracts

NBA's worst cap-killing contracts
The Detroit Pistons have reached the home stretch of their free-agent shopping spree, cutting by about 25 percent the NBA's list of potential serious spenders.

By the way, Philly also deserves mention for having to give Samuel Dalembert another $23.5 million over the next two seasons after Samuel gave them 6.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game last year.

The center spot is even more well paid in Milwaukee, where the Bucks are prepared to give Andrew Bogut $41 million over the next five years while backup Dan Gadzuric is due more than $14 million over the next two.

Attention, K-Mart shoppers! While the Denver Nuggets attempt to keep Chris "Birdman" Andersen in their cage, Kenyon Martin is set to be paid more than $31 million over the next two seasons. Teammate Nene is no financial slouch, being owed a less-offensive $33 million over the next three. Sure, those two do the dirty work for a really good team, but that really seems a bit pricey now.

In Dallas, where Mark Cuban's free spending usually can be attached to some realistic method, center Erick Dampier (two more years at roughly $23.5 million total) will continue to jam trade and free-agent talks for another year or so.

In Utah, the Jazz are happy that potential free agents Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur have decided a contract in the hand is worth more than the bush-league money available elsewhere. Unfortunately, the $34.2 million Utah owes Andrei Kirilenko over the next two years has contributed to the potential loss of break-out free-agent forward Paul Millsap.

The New Orleans Hornets reportedly are peddling high-paid center Tyson Chandler and his questionable lower extremities; they might be a bit less willing to deal one of the few players capable of guarding Tim Duncan (without sending the double-team cavalry) if Peja Stojakovic had considerably less than $30 million headed his way over the next two seasons. Morris Peterson hardly seems like a Hornets bargain at two years and more than $13 million.

If we haven't listed the player whose contract currently is annihilating the cap flexibility of your favorite team, please accept our apology. We're quite aware that Marcus Banks is sucking more than $8 million from the Toronto Raptors over the next two years, and Martell Webster's health problems could make four more years totaling beyond $20 million a minor mess in Portland.

Eventually, such deals will reach their final seasons and those players could be moved ... probably for a buster with a long-term deal.
