Last week, we took a look at the offseason moves that are paying the highest dividends for their respective teams following the first quarter of the 2013-14 NBA season, including Dwight Howard's impressive play with the Rockets and Eric Bledsoe's rise in Phoenix.

This week, we'll take a look at the moves that were aimed at improving their teams but have thus far backfired.

Here are the five offseason moves that have proved to be the worst so far in the 2013-14 season, along with a couple of "honorable mentions."


Terry
Pierce
Garnett
