9. Rafael Araujo (#8 pick in 2004)
There is not much to say about Rafael Araujo’s NBA career, other than it was a complete failure. People were shocked when the Raptors picked him, because the Brazilian big man had no business being picked in the lottery, let alone with the 8th pick in the draft. His career lasted only three seasons, averaging 2.9 PPG and 2.8 RPG. He may be well-known in the Brazilian League, but NBA pundits will forever include “Hoffa” as an all-time draft bust.
Players drafted after him:
Andre Iguodala, Al Jefferson, J.R. Smith, Josh Smith, Jameer Nelson, Kevin Martin, Tony Allen, Anderson Varejao and Trevor Ariza.
Why he is a bigger bust than Kwame Brown: Shorter career, worse stats.
