Rafael Araujo, an unrestricted free agent, is weighing his options, including the possibility of playing in Europe. The NBA career of the former No. 8 overall draft pick from Brigham Young could be on hold for now.

If by bust you mean expectations vs. performance...

I give it to Kwame Brown.

Theres worse players in the league but none of them had higher expectations put on them then Mr. Kwame Birthdaycake Brown.

Kwame wasn't expected to be a Superstar,they thought at best he'd be able to contribute 20 pts 12 rpg 2 bpg in a span of 4-6 yrs after he was drafted,rather than blaming Jordan for taking a high schooler they blamed Kwame for not being an All Star Player
same with all high schoolers from his era:
Johnathan Bender
Tyson Chandler
Eddy Curry
Darius Miles
Deshawn Stevenson
none were expected to be an immediate star,they were expected to take about 4-6 yrs to develop into a Star

before you think of calling Kwame a bust think of who you could've drafted to make that team better immediately is Shane Battier,according to Wizards draft position

The more I think about it, the more I think Michael Olowokandi was just a bad pick. I don't think he ever should have been picked at #1 and I don't think anyone in the top 3 would have drafted him. Maybe top 5.

20/12 and 2 blocks aren't superstar numbers in the NBA now?
