Adonal Foyle, Golden State Warriors, 2004: six years, $42 million
Derek Fisher, Golden State Warriors, 2004: six years, $37 million
If a deal seems ghastly to most observers on the day it's announced, things usually fail to turn out well for any involved party. Fisher and Foyle parlayed healthy attitudes and defensive mind-sets into outrageous deals in Chris Mullin's first offseason as el jefe in Golden State. Mullin was lucky enough to rid himself of Fisher's baggage this summer (traded to Utah for expiring deals), but Golden State still owes Foyle another three years at nearly $9 million per. It should be noted that the Warriors still hold a team option for Foyle in '09-10 for $10.5 million, just in case he becomes an All-Star at age 35.
