The trade: Rights to No. 7 overall pick in 2002 NBA Draft, Marcus Camby, and Mark Jackson (NYK) for Antonio McDyess, rights to No. 25 overall pick in 2002 NBA Draft, second-round selection in 2003 NBA Draft (DEN)

While Isiah Thomas did his best to ensure the New York Knicks basically never had picks to trade, he had yet to arrive in 2002 when they drafted Nene, a raw but talented center who has become an excellent player. Unfortunately, GM Scott Layden dumped their new pick, along with center Marcus Camby and veteran point guard Mark Jackson to Denver in exchange for the oft-injured Antonio McDyess. Like many of the Knicks' moves, this one didn't work out; McDyess did not play during the 2002-03 season, then appeared in just 18 games during 2003-04 before being sent to Phoenix in the deal that brought Penny Hardaway and Stephon Marbury to the Knicks. Yikes.
