Year: 1994

In what became his final season in the NBA, Isiah Thomas was nearly sent packing by the Detroit Pistons to the New York Knicks, who were looking for a veteran point guard after Doc Rivers went down with a season-ending knee injury. After a dispute over money, the Pistons were prepared to part ways with Zeke and in a total Knicks move, New York was going to send over Tony Campbell, Tim McCormick, and a 1994 first-round draft pick (of course!) for a 32-year-old Isiah. Eventually, Thomas decided it would be in his best interest to stay with the Pistons and finish his career in the Motor City. Of course, you know what happens when Thomas does find himself in the Big Apple, right?
