to go with your list of
all overpaid bigmen. teams saw that they were big, and signed them to large $$$. now? most of the teams that own these players are cap fucckked and want them shipped out asap. the ones in bold were on teams that made the playoffs, but did so with little contribution from that player. other players on your list:
are worth what they're getting paid. magloire isn't in that category.
i'd rather draft the player you have your latest crush on (aldridge) than pay someone like magloire... and im not that high on lamarcus either.
i could see a team that has a very high payroll make a move like this and add a player like magloire to help them get over the hump. but a player and a contract like that is terrible for a club that is trying to rebuild. there are more cost friendly ways of adding bigmen, the draft being the best route. so long as you do your scouting, you won't have to worry about him being worth "bigman money" or not.
