Every sporting contest has a simple rule at its core: for every winner, there has to be loser. The NBA free agency is no exception to it. For every team that comes out of the free agency with a rich haul of players to boast of, there is always the others who are left lacerated and headed towards the cellars of the NBA.

After deliberating on the 5 biggest winners of this year’s free agency, here are this year’s 5 biggest losers.

5) Atlanta Hawks

Paul Milsap

Notable additions: Paul Milsap, Jeff Teague (re-signed)

Notable losses: Josh Smith, Zaza Pachulia

The second victim in the list of Dwight Howard burnouts on the list. Not only did they miss out on Howard, but they got burnt the second time in the free agency when Josh Smith headed off to Detroit. Paul Misap’s signing was another curious move as it would make Al Halford continue to play out of position at the centre. Re-signing sharp-shooting Kyle Korver and matching the contract for restricted free agent Jeff Teague may have been moves that salvaged the face of the franchise but this would be one  off-season that they would like to quickly forget.
