0 of 10

    NBA trade rumors can be fascinating.

    Two summers ago, Kevin Garnett, then a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, was rumored to be traded all over the map. It seemed as though every day he was headed to a different destination.

    One day, it looked like he was going to end up in Phoenix. Then the next day, he was supposedly on his way to team up with Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles.

    After weeks of rumblings, Garnett finally wound up in Boston, where he led the Celtics to the 2008 title.

    There have been all sorts of trade rumors throughout the history of the NBA. While some make a great deal of sense, others sound totally unbelievable.

    Well, here is a list of my personal favorite top 10 trade rumors of the past 15 years. Enjoy.

    John Paxson's refusal to trade Luol Deng cost the Chicago Bulls the chance to acquire Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies in 2007.

    As of now, the Bulls are still in search of a low-post threat to dump the ball to.

6. Scottie Pippen and Luc Longley to Boston
