Amar'e Stoudemire and Joe Johnson are near the top of ESPN's list that ranks the worst contracts in the NBA.
If you're looking for two of the worst contracts in the entire NBA, look no further than New York City.
Stoudemire's five year, $99.7 million dollar deal is ranked as the second-worst in the entire league. Stoudemire was signed by the Knicks in July 2010, after spending the first eight years of his career with the Phoenix Suns.
Johnson's contract ranks as the third-worst contract in the league. Johnson signed a six-year, $119 million dollar contract to stay with the Atlanta Hawks in the summer of 2010. Atlanta then traded Johnson, and his contract, to the Nets in July 2012.
With plenty of time left on both Stoudemire's and Johnson's contract, the pair of former-stars could easily redeem themselves and justify their large paydays.
