Trading Brad Daugherty for Roy Hinson (Sixers)
The Sixers were coming off a 54-28 season, had veterans Moses Malone and Dr. J, a promising young star named Charles Barkley, and the No. 1 pick in the 1986 Draft. Hard to screw that up, right? Wrong. In perhaps the most disastrous 30 minutes of Draft Day history, the Sixers traded Daugherty (right) for Roy Hinson, then turned around and traded Moses Malone for Jeff Ruland. Ruland would play five games for the Sixers and Hinson would be traded after a disappointing year and a half. Daugherty, meanwhile, would become the Cavs best player ever until LeBron came along, and Moses would average a double-double for the next four years. Twenty-five years later, and some would say that the Sixers still haven't recovered. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Charles Krupa/Karen Tam)
