He did give away a 2nd for the Antropov rental. I'd have to look back to see what other picks were dealt over the years, but obviously there's a "garbage" 6th fresh in my mind for a rental this season as well.

I also agree with HBNYC that too many of these trades are rooted in the need to alleviate a "problem". The net effect is a team that's arguably worse AND worse off than the one with all the problems they were dying to get rid of.
