Trading Tom Gugliotta for John Wall... don't laugh... it may have already happened


So in my boredom between appointments, I was perusing nbadraft.net's latest mock draft.  I got curious about Utah having a high lottery selection and I hit their link for Outstanding 2010 trades and saw that the pick had been acquired through a 2004 trade involving sending Tom Gugliotta to Utah and Stephon Marbury to New York.  Out of all the tomfoolery, Utah obtained two conditional first round picks... one of which was an unprotected pick in this year's draft.

As we all know, the New Jersey Nets have the best chance at landing the number 1 overall pick (25% chance); but the Knicks/Jazz have a 2.2% chance to obtain that pick. 

I knew that NBA deals got convoluted, but never in my wildest dreams did I think that a deal from 2004 involving an aging player averaging 2.3 points a game would affect where John Wall plays basketball.
