On Sunday the Clippers agreed to send a 2015 first-round pick to the Celtics for coach Doc Rivers (right)—who as a player ended up in Atlanta because the Hawks got a second-round pick in 1983 from the Bulls for coach Kevin Loughery. Here are a few other high-profile coach trades.
Pirates send C Manny Sanguillen and $100,000 to A's for Chuck Tanner.
Pittsburgh got Sanguillen back a year later on the cheap, and Tanner led the team to the '79 title.
