Robert Traylor for Dirk Nowitzki (Bucks)
The Mavericks had the No. 6 pick in the 1998 draft, and the Bucks asked them for a favor. "Could you please grab Robert Traylor for us, and we'll give you our No. 9 pick?" The Mavs said yes. They picked Traylor and swapped him for a guy who had a slightly better career than Traylor. Dirk Nowitzki. Of course, the Sixers flopped in that same draft, taking the forgettable Larry Hughes with the No. 8 pick. The No. 9 and No. 10 picks were future Hall of Famers Dirk Nowtizki and Paul Pierce. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Morry Gash/Eric Gay)
