Dallas drafted him 6th & traded him to Milwaukee for the rights to....Dirk Nowtizki and Pat Garrity. Garrity was later traded to Phoenix for backup PG Steve Nash.
Don Nelson turned Tractor Traylor & Pat Garrity into Dirk Nowitzki & Steve Nash. Pretty incredible.
Yup. One of the most lopsided trades in NBA history.
Absolutely loved Tractor at Michigan. He was such a character.
Interesting cause everyone knew Mavericks wanted Dirk. Nelson figured he would fall and wanted to milk a couple extra picks from the bucks.
Bucks did make a worse trade in 1975, Sending Kareem to the Lakers for Elmore Smith, Brian Winters, Dave Meyers and Junior Bridgeman
