Tyrus Thomas was a hot commodity when he re-signed with the Charlotte Bobcats in 2010. "Re-signing Tyrus was one of our top offseason priorities," General Manager Rod Higgins said. So did the team get their money’s worth out of the deal?

Not according to Berri. “His effective field goal percentage was below 40% and he was below average on the boards,” he told CNBC.com. “So although Thomas didn’t get paid as much as many players on this list, his productivity was so low he cost the Bobcats a large sum of money.”
