Which trade is the best ever in the NBA history?


best trade means all of the three:
1. big salary dump (at least $10M per year);
2. make own team win 10 more games a season;
3. make another team win 10 more games a season.

And:

4. allow all teams in league to win championship;
5. provide all fans with millions of dollars.

6. Owners provide free nachos with extra jalapenos to all fans, along with the million smackers.
7. Makes me be able to dunk on a ten-foot rim.

without a doubt the best trade ever was the celtics trading the number one pick to the warriors for robert parrish and the second pick which the celtics used on kevin mchale. warriors took jo barry carroll.

Traylor (and Garrity?) for Dirk

Definitely Otis Thorpe for a future 1st rounder (which became Darko Milicic) :D

The Marbury to NY trade was probably the best cap-clearing move ever. The Suns traded away approximately $120 mil in contracts and received less than $20 mil. I think this trade will prove to be a huge positive turning point for the Suns franchise (at least after this season is over) :D

best one not mentioned yet

Nick Van Exel
Raef LaFrentz
Tariq Abdul Wahad
Avery Johnson

for

Juwan Howard
Donnell Harvey
Tim Hardaway


this trade allowed Kiki to rebuild the Nuggets as he has now. If this trade doesn't happen all of those 4 horrible contracts would still be on the nuggets books.

Requirement #1 eliminates DECADES of NBA history so you're not gonna get many responses that fit all 3 of your criteria.
