Let's take a look at some stars that were traded in their careers.




Charles Barkley

June 17, 1992: Traded by the Philadelphia 76ers to the Phoenix Suns for Jeff Hornacek, Andrew Lang and Tim Perry.

August 19, 1996: Traded by the Phoenix Suns with a 1999 2nd round draft pick (Tyrone Washington) to the Houston Rockets for Chucky Brown, Mark Bryant, Sam Cassell and Robert Horry.




Kareem

June 16, 1975: Traded by the Milwaukee Bucks with Walt Wesley to the Los Angeles Lakers for Junior Bridgeman, Dave Meyers, Elmore Smith and Brian Winters.


This is a top 2-3 player all time and that is all the Bucks got for him in his prime.




Clyde Drexler

February 14, 1995: Traded by the Portland Trail Blazers with Tracy Murray to the Houston Rockets for Otis Thorpe, Marcelo Nicola and a 1995 1st round draft pick (Randolph Childress).



Those were just a few of them.

He was terrible but in fairness what else could he have done, a superstar who essential stopped trying doesnt have much trade value, i remember shariff abdul rahim and nick van exel's expiring was an offer, but cap space on a team that cant lure big FA is kinda pointless

The Garnett trade is on the downside of Garnett's career, and, they really were not much of team with him.

To me, nothing is in the same level as the Kareem trade to the Lakers. It killed the Bucks and made the Lakers with a decade and a half left to go in his career.

OK, it's two superstars to be for a bum, does that count?

The Celts traded the #1 pick (turned out to be Joe Barry Carrol) for the #3 pick and Robert Parish. The #3 pick was Kevin McHale. Two HOF'ers for a soft bum? Ouch.

The Trade that sent him to The Suns....Although the Matrix did little in Miami, it killed the suns and I think lead to there current state. The second worst trade was him to the Cavs! They did it for Bron Bron. The players were nothing special, but it killed there team, and might have destroyed their only chance for a ring for years to come.

Didn't Kareem want to be traded though? He won the 'ship for the Bucks but then I thought he was looking to play in a bigger market. I'm not sure, that was WAY before I was born.

The 96-97 (58-24)and 97-98 (51-31) years were both pretty successful for the Hornets. They hit a wall in 99, but ended up getting Baron Davis and began to compete again. The injuries to Davis and a few bad moves hurt them, but all in all they were a solid franchise right after, and for years following, the Kobe draft day trade.

I disagree, they were in contention for at least a playoff spot every year. and after he was traded, boston won a championship, has been to 2 nba finals, and he's still good for a double double jus bout every nite.

When they got him, he slowed them down greatly and changed their game...It also showed a lack of love for Amare and some of the people they had in house. This caused descent. They liked The Matrix. He wanted out because he would not get signed longterm, you think players have no memory? They will not be back to the WCF this year for sure. The issue started with the Shaq trade.

Its funny becuase Gasol got traded for his brother. At the time that trade was High Way robbery
Now its still in the Lakers side, But not highway robbery, just a good deal For the Lakers. And Techniocally it did give the wizards cap room to trade for Zach Randolph while keeping Marc gasol.

AllDayAllNight
10-02-2010, 02:28 AM
Just because Marc Gasol is a decent center doesn't mean the Lakers didn't rape the Grizzlies in that trade. Marc is maybe half the player that Pau is. Its not relevant though Grizzlies sucked before and suck now. Bright future at least :)

The Heat sent Cleveland two first-round draft picks and two second-round picks, as well as a large trade exception, for James. The first-round picks could be between 2013 and 2017. The second-round picks are in 2012 (acquired from New Orleans) and a future pick acquired from Oklahoma City. For some reason, the Cavs will have the option to swap 2012 first-round picks with the Heat as well. The trade exception can be used within one year.

The carter trade for this franchise was one of the best ever. We traded junk for him too.

Carter was and is a dog. Nets had one good season with him, and that was with Kidd and RJ healthy, and the Nets playing tough defense.

And of course, Carter rolled over in the playoffs, like he did last season.

Was not ecstatic when Nets traded for him, was angry when Nets re-signed him, and partied when Nets traded him.

Nets may have had a bad season last year, but they are on the road to improvement, which would not be the case if Nets hadn't traded him.

How is this?

The Knicks should have just started to rebuild after Ewing was done. Instead they traded him for an old Glen Rice, Luc Longley, and a bunch of other scrubs who killed their cap. They would then, for the next decade, attempt to rebuild on the fly like this and dig themselves deeper and deeper into cap trouble with awful results on the court.

its on par with the Moses Malone for Jeff Rulland and cliff Robinson trade.

At the moment of the deal it was actually highway robbery for sixers cause rulland was a young allstar and robinson was still young enough and starry enough.

Both went to **** with injurys and sixers looked certanly stupid even if it wasnt their fault.

Traded to the Knicks for Antonio Davis to dump Jalen Rose's salary

and that pick i believed turned to be renaldo balkman in the 2006 draft when the raptors OR the knicks could have drafted rajon rondo.

The Vince carter trade wouldn't have looked that bad if they had drafted

danny granger - instead of joey graham
rajon rondo - kept 2nd pick and used it on him instead

what a fail.......

carter for basically granger and rondo ... not bad....

or at the very least what kind of trade package the raptors could have had for that version of carter.....
