We've covered how each team in the East and West will finish, as well as which players will take home the Rookie of the Year and MVP. Now our panel is projecting which additions will prove the best and worst this season.

We asked the ESPN Forecast team to rank its top three choices for the 2016-17 worst newcomer, with a first-place vote receiving five points, a second-place vote receiving three and a third-place vote receiving one. (Here's how ESPN Forecast works.)
