NBA teams will soon be headed to Orlando, Florida, and the Walt Disney World Resort where the league will complete the 2019-20 season. The league selected 22 teams to join the restart which will begin with games on July 30.

The teams chosen all had legitimate chances to make the top eight in their respective conference. In the West, there were five teams all within six games of current eighth-place Memphis. Any of the five could potentially replace the Grizzlies as the eighth seed in the West.

In the East, Washington is 4.5 games behind eighth-place Orlando. The Magic are just half a game behind Brooklyn, which is currently seventh.

Sometimes, NBA teams gamble on a trade in an attempt to better their franchise. There are times when those trades work out for the best. Some trades can help teams get to the playoffs or even make a run to an NBA title. This article is not about those trades. This is about the trades that will be remembered as the worst in the history of the league.

Pippen for Polynice

Before Oklahoma City moved from Seattle, the old Supersonics made a huge mistake in the 1987 draft. The Sonics had the fifth overall pick which they used on a relative unknown out of Central Arkansas – Scottie Pippen. Instead of holding on to Pippen, the Sonics decided they would rather have 6-11 Olden Polynice. So, Seattle traded Pippen to Chicago where he became a seven-time All-Star and would win six NBA titles alongside a guy named Michael Jordan.

If you took a poll around the NBA, you could probably win a lot of money betting that there is a belief that Doc Rivers is a future hall of famer. When most think of him they probably think of the NBA championship back in 2008 with the Boston Celtics. Despite that one championship, Rivers hasn’t had as great of a career as everyone seems to think he has had. That Celtics team had a roster that consisted of three shoe-in hall of fame players (Allen, Pierce, Garnett), and a plethora of good role players. However, prior to Boston, during his time in Orlando, Rivers only put together a 171-168 (.504) record.
