Trivia Time - What do former Clipper and Magic player Bo Outlaw, Phoenix All Star Amare Stoudemire and Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro have in common?

Answer - In November 2001 they were traded for each other in a bizarre three way deal. The Clippers acquired Del Negro (and cash) to get over the league's minimum salary and gave up nothing. The Magic wanted out of the 5/$28M which they had given Outlaw only 2 years earlier. The Suns took on Outlaw's contract, and for their trouble got a draft pick that became Amare. I'd say Phoenix won that deal.
