Swap Meet

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.

This is an article from the July 1, 2013 issue

1977

Pirates send C Manny Sanguillen and $100,000 to A's for Chuck Tanner.

Result

Pittsburgh got Sanguillen back a year later on the cheap, and Tanner led the team to the '79 title.

2000

Patriots send 1st-round pick to Jets for Bill Belichick.

Result

The deal, three years after New York gave New England four picks for Bill Parcells, landed the Jets Shaun Ellis and the Pats a coach who has won three rings.

2002

Bucs send four picks and cash to Raiders for Jon Gruden.

Result

Gruden won a Super Bowl his first year but never won another playoff game. The Raiders got several adequate players—but no Pro Bowlers.

2011

Marlins send P Jhan Marinez and IF Osvaldo Martinez to White Sox for Ozzie Guillen.

Result

Lose/lose. Marinez is in Triple A, Martinez was sold to the Dodgers and Guillen's reign in Miami lasted a year.

2013

Red Sox send IF Mike Aviles to Blue Jays for John Farrell.

Result

Aviles was flipped to Cleveland for effective reliever Esmil Rogers. Farrell, at week's end, had Boston surprisingly in first place.
