Isiah Thomas, New York Knicks
Contract: Four years, $24 million
The worst-ever front office contract. After signing malcontents and overrated players such as Jerome James and Stephon Marbury to outlandish contracts, hemorrhaging money, paying Larry Brown over $28 million to lead the Knicks to a 23-59 record, failing miserably as a coach as well as team president, and dragging the Knicks through a humiliating sexual harassment trial, the Knicks awarded Thomas with a four-year, $24 million deal. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Ed Betz)
