What was the worst trade in NBA History? Here are a few to get us started:

GS traded Robert Parish and the #3 pick (in the 1980 draft)--Kevin McHale for picks #1 (Joe Barry Carrol) and #13 (Ricky Brown).

MIL trading Kareem to L.A.

CHA trading the rights to Kobe to L.A. for Vlade Divac (which also freed up enough $ to go after Shaq with a max offer)

I know there are a lot more...but thats a pretty good start.

1 Milwaukee Bucks traded Dirk Nowitzki & Pat Garrity to the Dallas Mavericks for Robert Traylor (1998)

2. Philadelphia 76ers trade Charles Barkley to the Phoenix Suns for Andrew Lang, Tim Perry, and Jeff Hornacek (1992)

3. Embattled Nets owner Roy Boe sold Dr. J to Philadelphia for $3 million on Oct. 20, 1976. After completing the deal, Sixers owner F. Eugene Dixon, who also gave Erving a $3 million raise, called Doc "the Babe Ruth of basketball."

4. The Sonics traded Pippen, the fifth pick in the draft, to Chicago in exchange for the eighth pick, center Olden Polynice, a second-round pick and the option to switch first-round picks in 1989.

Kings trading Mitch Richmond and Otis Thorpe for Chris Webber. Richmond and Thorpe were past their primes and did nothing with the Bullets (I think they were still called the Bullets back then).

Probably not the worst trade ever but it hasn't been mentioned yet.

On the same line, getting Jerryd Bayless for Brandon Rush.

IMO you can't count Kobe, or Pippen, They were both rookies, who knows what you'll get for with a rookie, for it to be the worst trade imo the GM has to know what hes giving and what hes getting back and The Lakers Griz trade qualifies

Marc Gasol is a rookie and we don't know how good he will be, so I don't understand how the Lakers-Griz qualifies by your definition. Also, we've seen J-Critt play but its still to early to tell with him either.

The trade sending Kobe to Los Angeles and Vlade Divac to Charlotte is easily the worst ever. It's top spot is guaranteed because it opened up room to land Shaquille O'neal.

as another poster pointed out, trading rookies who have never played a game can't be considered in this. You never know what you will get from a rookie. So, in that regard, Kobe went something like 13 in the draft. The 12 teams in front of him arguably made the biggest draft blunder of all time, after Houston and Portland in 84', correct? See what I mean

well, Foye for Roy was pretty stupid so far. Even though Foye had the same numbers Roy did when he actually did play 35 minutes, although I have gone to great lengths to downplay those stats because a player that doesn't play 35 mpg often probably wouldn't get those 35 mpg stats over an 82 game season. With that trade, and the one you mention, time will tell. They are all in their 3rd year, give them another 3 years, then we decide who won.

Kobe was widely touted as a top 5 pick until he refused to workout for anyone but LA and NY, going so far as to say he'd play in Europe if he didn't end up on one of those two teams. Charlotte got an all-star caliber center for the 13th pick, which kept the struggling Hornets in the playoffs and hence in the black for a few more years. It was a great trade for them.

The Mavs trading Tractor Traylor isn't a bad trade either, the Bucks wanted to leapfrog I believe Philly so they could get Traylor. The Mavs knew nobody would pick Nowitski since he was a little known project out of Germany, so they traded down, doing Milwaukee a favor and getting something back in return.

You guys are missing one fairly big trade. in 1968 the Lakers traded Jerry Chambers, Archie Clark and Darrel Imhoff to the '76ers for some player by the name of Wilt Chamberlain. Speaking of the '76ers, are they the worst trading team of all time? Chamberlain, Barkley AND Iverson? These are three legitimate hall of famers, all of which they recieved nothing but role players in return for. Add the Chris Webber debacle and in my opinion you have the worst trading team in NBA history. What do you think?

I was -7 when the Wilt trade went down, pardon me for not remembering it. The Sixers have had bad luck for sure in trades. As much as losing Iverson hurt, look at the cap space it provided for this summer, and now Philly is relevant again. They are much better off with trading him.

Becuase of the the two princaples in the deal, We know what Kwame is and WE know what Pual Gasol is.

I was talking about rookie swaps Like Pippen for Olden, or a role player for a rookie such as kobe for vlade or battier for gay

Dude, I will take Elton on one achilles over Chandler. Seriously though, you are talking about a defensive specialist that lives off lobs from the best pg in the world, vs a penciled in, 20-10, shotblocker. C'mon. I know this will rub you the wrong way, but I would take Brand over Boozer any day of the week. No offense, don't mean it that way. Just saying

The worst NBA trade of all time has to be the 1986 76ers trading away the # 1 pick which turned out to be Brad Daugherty, to Cleveland for Roy Hinson, then giving away Moses Malone and Terry Catledge to the Bullets for Jeff Ruland (bad knees) and jouney man Cliff Robinson. In my opinion this is the worst trade of all time.

I was glad to see Vince go anyway. He was lazy and jacking up more shots than Kobe.

I couldn't disagree with you more. First off, I think Love will be the better player. At every level he has gone, people question his athletic ability, and what does he do? Dominate. By no means do I think he will be a resident on the all star team, but a 18-11 with 5 assists a game, with 2-3 outlet passes a game for layups is easily realistic. While, Mayo, who was a 21 year old freshman btw, reminds me of Ben Gordon at best. He doesn't do anything but shoot the ball well. Nothing. Throw in Mike Miller, and the Wolves burned the Grizz on that deal. So yeah, I could agree it will go down a bad deal, but the other way around

Golden State trading Mitch Richmond to the Kings for the draft rights to Billy Owens. Richmond was becoming a star and part of the Run-TMC trio. Owens was a petulant punk out of Syracuse who refused to play for Sacramento. Richmond rotted away in Sac but still played like an all-star for several years while Owens was a complete bust. The only good move the Kings made for their first 15 years in Sacramento.

Trades where the team had to get rid of the disgruntled star shouldnt count, its hard for the team to win in those situations. Also back in the 80's financial restraints played a bigger role than it does now so I wouldnt diss GS for trading Parish, he was in a contract year and it wouldve been impossible for GS to retain him, they got decent talent out of his departure.

MIL trading Kareem to L.A.

CHA trading the rights to Kobe to L.A. for Vlade Divac (which also freed up enough $ to go after Shaq with a max offer)

I know there are a lot more...but thats a pretty good start.

I have to say that is the worst. I also remember that the Hawks drafted Bill Russell and then traded him to Boston for a no-name guy. I think its between those 2 for the worst all-time IMO.

Kobe was traded a day or two after the draft to L.A. for Divac. Eddie Jones and Elden Campbell were traded to Charlotte for Glen Rice, J.R. Reid and B.J. Armstrong (who was promptly released). I'm quite sure that's how that trade worked out, possible draft picks but those were the main part of the trade.

No Oj Mayo is an explosive scorer who can play point and is going to be a lockdown defender read your scouting reports first.All across the the board people say that is what separates him from the rest is his willingness and passion to play defense. He has the potential to be great and be a superstar. Kevin Love will never be the best player on any team. Many people have dominated high school and college that doesnt mean it will translate to the league. i just dont see his game translating that well to the league .Love is the more low risk pick by far. I think Mayo would be best suited for the 2 and i also think a better comparison would be D Wade with more shooting range

I know!!! Nobody believes me when I say that. It's just like Denver giving up Camby for 2nd round trade rights. Guess what we have now? Rights!!!!!!!! Most countries don't even have those!!!

Trades on draft nights aren't bad because you have unproven players.

Worst trades are trades that lead to the success of another team. The Nets really didn't have much success with that deal.
