The 20 Worst Trade Deadline Deals in NBA History

13. Chris Webber to the Sixers

Trade: Philadelphia 76ers get Chris Webber, Matt Barnes, and Michael Bradley; Sacramento Kings get Brian Skinner, Kenny Thomas, and Corliss Williamson.
Date: 2/23/2005

C-Webb was a dynamic force in the NBA helping lead the Sacramento Kings to many successful seasons. However, after microfracture surgery, Webber lost a considerable amount of his athletic abilities and the Kings dealt him to Philadelphia in a six-player deal. Many people thought that pairing Webber and Allen Iverson together would put Philadelphia at least in the playoff conversation. After a first round loss to Detroit in 2005, the Sixers couldn't make the playoffs in 2006. They bought out Webber in 2007. Sacramento didn't fare much better either, with no playoff appearances since 2006.
