Forecast: Worst newcomer of 2015-16

We've shared our projections for the best newcomer of 2015-16, so who will end up being the worst addition?

To be clear, we are not talking about the worst player per se, but the one who (considering expectations, price, etc.) will have the biggest negative impact, the most disappointing season or will wear out his welcome first.

We asked the ESPN Forecast team to rank its top three choices for worst newcomer, with a first-place vote receiving five points, a second-place vote receiving three and a third-place vote receiving one.
