6. Vladimir Radmanovic (2012)

You can make the argument that Vladimir Radmanovic was a bit ahead of his time. As a 6-foot-10 power forward, he was able to spread the floor with a consistent 3-point shot and actually had a 5-6-year stretch in the league where he played important roles. While he was never a consistent full-time starter, he did have several seasons where he averaged double-digit scoring totals on good 3-point shooting percentage.

During the summer of 2012, well beyond his prime, the Chicago Bulls took a flier on Radmanovic. To say that it didn’t pan out would be a massive understatement. During his lone season with the Bulls, Radmanovic averaged just one point per game in just six minutes per game in only 25 appearances. Radmanovic would go on to retire from the NBA after 12 seasons shortly after his run with the Bulls.

After being a lottery pick during the 2001 NBA Draft, Radmanovic had a fairly successful NBA career but just found himself on the Bulls at the wrong time. Taking a flier on Radmanovic was a few years too late and it was a move that really didn’t work out too well for him or the Bulls.
