Brother for brother trade - does this ever happen?

I saw the last trade Brendan Morrow to Pens for Joseph Morrow from Stars. In first moment i thought, they are brothers. But that was a mistake.

Does it ever happen in the history, that one guy was in trade, where was also his brother? or lets say at least cousin.

first brother trade that comes to mind is pau and marc gasol being traded for each other in the NBA.

can't think of an example of the same thing in the NHL though. but, as i'm sure you know, we've seen a lot of NHL trades that reunite brothers: staals, schenns, sutters, brotens, bures, babyches, courtnalls, sundstroms, lemieuxs (claude and jocelyn, though the pens did also sign mario's brother alain as a free agent for a brief stint in the late 80s), etc.

Theres a page on wiki, NHL Players - Related or something to that affect as the header, quite a few brothers, cousins, Uncles etc being swapped around, playing together or not.... the Sutter Twins, Rich & Ron in Philly, first time the opposition didnt see double before the opening face-off as the result of a sucker punch.... Rob & Scott Niedermayer with the Ducks, neither one of which much to the chagrin of Brian Burke could play goal... Peter & Miroslav Ihnacak who grew up dreaming of playing in the NHL behind the Iron Curtain only to find themselves in Toronto as Maple Leafs....
