NBA All-Star Weekend brought one of the biggest surprises of the season when news that DeMarcus Cousins was getting shipped to the Pelicans broke during the NBA All-Star Game—and that was days before Thursday's trade deadline. We have no idea whether any other transactions will come close to equaling how epically bad the Cousins trade looks right now for the Kings. We have some suggestions. But you know at least one general manager out there will make some absurd acquisition that every savvy NBA observer will mock until the end of time.
Kind of like these awful, lopsided trades we highlighted. From all the debacles Isiah Thomas orchestrated while running the Knicks to Sunday's head-scratcher of a deal that officially teamed Cousins with Anthony Davis, familiarize yourself with the worst trades at the NBA's trade deadline since 2002.
