CHARLOTTE NC - DECEMBER 29: Teammates J.J.

Former Cavaliers lottery pick DeSagana Diop has been voted the worst center of the franchise since the 2000-2001 season by the Fear the Sword voters. He picked up 47% of the votes to beat out Ryan Hollins.
The Senegal man has played for Cleveland, Dallas, New Jersey and Charlotte in his 579 game NBA career. In the past 3.5 seasons with the Bobcats he has played in just 41, 27, 16 and 27 games. I'm not sure how much lower than that it gets for an NBA player.
While with Cleveland from 2001-2005, Diop played 11 minutes per game and scored just 1.6 points per night to go along with 2.6 rebounds a game. He provided no offense in the middle as he shot just 36% from the field. His offensive rating (which measures how many points the Cavaliers scored per 100 possessions when he was on the court) was just 80. Yuck.
In 11 total NBA seasons the most total points he has scored in a campaign is only 226 so his career never really got on track after he left town.
In fact, he has 1,200 career personal fouls and 1,169 career points. Enough said.
