9. Brad Miller

In 2010, the Houston Rockets signed Brad Miller to a three-year deal worth $15 million, giving him another opportunity to join forces with former Kings coach Rick Adelman. The move was designed to allow the Rockets to take some of the stress off of Yao Ming. 

During that season, Miller started just five games for the Rockets, and averaged 6.4 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. Miller flashed his long-range shooting, converting on 37.4 percent of his triples.

The Rockets missed the playoffs, and went 43-39, finishing 9th in the West and 3 games back of the 8th-seeded Memphis Grizzlies. 

The Rockets ended the Miller experience after just one season, sending him to the Minnesota Timberwolves during the following offseason. Miller was packaged with Nikola Mirotic, and a 2013 first round pick in exchange for Jonny Flynn, Donatas Motiejunas, and a 2012 second-round draft pick.

Miller would play one season with the Timberwolves before being traded to the Phoenix Suns, who then bought him out.
