Which NBA Player Has Played For The Most Teams? (Minimum of 10 Teams)

NBA players often end up playing for multiple teams throughout their career due to various factors.

One reason is trades, where players are moved from one team to another in exchange for other players or draft picks. This can happen if a team wants to acquire a specific player or if a player’s performance does not meet the expectations of their current team.

Another factor is free agency, where players have the opportunity to choose which team they want to play for after their contract with their current team expires. Players may decide to sign with a different team based on factors such as team success, playing time, location, or financial incentives.

Changes in team dynamics, coaching staff, or ownership can also influence a player’s decision to switch teams. Some players may feel that a different team offers better opportunities for personal and professional growth.

It’s important to note that not all NBA players end up playing for multiple teams. There are players who spend their entire careers with a single team, becoming ONE with the franchise and creating a strong bond with the fan base.

Take a look at our list below that shows ‘Which NBA Players Have Played For The Most Teams? (Minimum of 10 Teams)’.

*If a player was traded, released, or left in free agency and later returned to that team it still counts as a new team.*
