Former Pitt Panther and current member of the Minnesota Timberwolves Mark Blount was listed as having the 14th worst contract in the NBA this season in an article by Bill Simmons from ESPN. Blount is in the middle of a 3 year contract that will pay him 22 million dollars.
Blount left Pitt after two seasons to go pro.
Blount's stats at Pitt:
95-95: 3.6ppg 3.0rpg 1.0bpg
95-96: 9.1ppg 6.8rpg 2.7bpg
Blount was drafted in the 2nd round of the 1997 NBA Draft by the Seattle Supersonics but did not make the team. To Blount's credit he played overseas, made a name for himself and earned an NBA job with Celtics in 2000-01 and has been in the NBA ever since. Now he has joined the dubious list of worst contracts in the NBA.
Mark Blount is the only former Pitt player currently in the NBA.
