HoopsAnalyst Rates Sacramento Trades

Harlan Schreiber at HoopsAnalyst has completed his series on the best trades in NBA history, finishing up with the old Pacific Division.

Schreiber gives Billy Owens for Mitch Richmond and Mitch Richmond for Chris Webber the top slot, with Jason Williams for Mike Bibby as the runner-up.

Last week, we gave the nod to Richmond for Webber, with Turkoglu and Pollard for Brad Miller a close second.

It's tough to argue that Bibby hasn't had more of an impact than Miller thus far - Mike's been here twice as long and was prominently involved in the Greatest Sacramento Season of All-Time.

But Miller is clearly more valuable to the team now in the post-Webber/Divac era - he's arguably the third best center in the Western Conference (curse you, Yao and Amare). Bibby is a top guard, too, but is a complete matador on defense.

If we had to lose one of The Nucleus players, I'd pick Bibby. I love the guy, especially his swagger and fearlessness. But Miller and Peja are rarities.

The Sacramento Kings are a tough act to follow, literally.

SKB does the dirty work so you can forget about the blood, sweat and tears.

Oh, you'll still need the tears in April, though.
