   2017 NBA Manifesto

Zaza Pachulia
C, 6’11, 270lbs, 33 years old, 14 years of experience

Best true shooting percentage of his 14 year career at ,588%, alongside his third best assist percentage, second best block percentage, best defensive BPM and joint second best VORP. Turns out it helps to be surrounded by elite talents. Knew what he was doing on the Kawhi Leonard foul.

Player Plan: Expiring $2,898,000 salary. If he won’t re-sign for much the same or a small increase, then perhaps another ring-chasing big will instead. Nene, for example.

   Ten Of The Worst New Contracts This Offseason

Zaza Pachulia, Carlos Delfino and Gary Neal – Milwaukee Bucks

This trio represents the most non-sensical summer of all. Milwaukee disbanded its previous fringe playoff team only to immediately invest $11.7 million guaranteed for each of the next two seasons in these three upside-less veteran backups. Whilst all three contracts could ideally be 25% smaller, no one is bad in a vacuum, but this is not the point. The point is that there is no point.

The Bucks spent $5.2 million on Pachulia this year to back up Larry Sanders. To put this into some context, the Philadelphia 76ers have spent $5,074,671 in salary cap space combined on acquiring all of Royce White, Tony Wroten, James Anderson, Tim Ohlbhrect, Rodney Williams and the rights to Furkan Aldemir, plus $1.7 million in cash.

There is a good chance that none of those six players ends up having a career equal to that of Pachulia, a quality backup for several years now. Aldemir probably has the best chance of it. However, we are talking merely about a backup calibre player on a lottery team. Why wouldn’t you give yourself six chances to find out?

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
