Inspired by Memphis' thread about the greatest trades in D5 history, I want to see what your best trade was value wise. Feel free to post any trade that you think turned out great for your team. I know I sure will.

To New Jersey 79 - Mike Dunleavy - $9,780,992 - $10,561,984
To Memphis 82 - Andrei Kirilenko - $16,451,250 - $17,822,187
I have not been here all that long but I have made a lot of trades. Problem is I had the worst roster in the history of professional basketball. I never planned on keeping AK47 but I figured I would have moved him mid-season to a team looking for that one more player. I was always shopping him though and Charlotte's deal got me 2 prospects and a pick so I took it. Simply because that trade would have never been possible with Dunleavy I say this is my best trade.

New Jersey Sends: Andrea Bargnani - $5,176,440 - $6,527,490
Miami Sends: Francisco Elson - $500,000 (contract) Herbert Hill - $500,000 (contract) Rajon Rondo - $1,646,784 - $2,623,326 Wilson Chandler - $600,000 - $700,000 Sean Singletary - $803,400 - $863,700 - $923,900 - $1,667,640
I managed to get Rondo right before he had his breakout in the 2009 playoffs. Wilson Chandler was also a nice pickup, who I later traded for McGee.

New Jersey Sends: Kobe Bryant - $21,262,500 - $23,034,375 Sam Cassell - $500,000 - $500,000 PO Doug Christie - $500,000 - $500,000 PO
Sacramento Sends: Kevin Durant - $5,250,000 - $5,500,000 TO- $5,500,000 TO Mikki Moore - $5,740,000 Mike James - $6,049,400 Matt Carroll - $1,000,000 Sac 2009 1st
When I felt like bombing my team, this is the trade I made, but it actually turned out to be really good. I think Durant is worth more than Kobe is now, and I picked Brandon Jennings with the 1st rounder, who I traded for Andrew Bynum. So basically, it was Kobe for Durant and Bynum.
Pretty much Blake's anything in D6 I managed to nab Shaq while dumping Eddy Curry's horrific contract in a trade that could have easily been rejected. That was probably one of only 2 or 3 that were accepted compared to the 4 billion that were posted.

I have plenty of good trades that could turn out to be great trades like the Xavier Henry for MEM draft pick and getting rid of Nene and Mo Williams as well as picking up Nash, and even at one point trading Tyson Chandler and a draft pick (which turned out to be Anthony Randolph) for Pau Gasol.
But this would have to be my best trade by far, because of it's impact on my team.

I hate this trade. Worst decision i have made. Henry better be something special. All my other risky moves were based on worst case scenario and I was fine with whatever happened but I never really thought about this and it could end up being extremely bad.
Bynum for Jennings, Nene, and pick, because with the other moves it turned into Brook Lopez, Nene, and Vince Carter (when I moved Jennings for Lopez, and used NJ 1st and my 1st with Ilyasova for Carter), so in terms of best pure move this would be the one.
Yeah. That would have been me pulling off the Brad Miller for Shaq and LeBron. That would have been my greatest trade. I dont know what my greatest trade would be, though.
If we didn't have a committee and/or it was accepted, it would've been perhaps the greatest trade in any sim league that wasn't a straight up act of dumping talent to a different team ;D
The expansion Louisville Stallions, suddenly endowed with championship calibre talent and success. No losses in their first season in Division Two, straight promotion and shot to the top half of Div 1 ;D
