Managing finance is always a hard-task in the NBA. There is just so much inflow and outflow of money, that you need a solid team of accountants to keep the amounts tallied. Strange trade deals have been recorded in the past due to teams holding an insufficient amount of money in their purse. Well, if you ask Milwaukee Bucks star Kyle Korver about one such experience, he can brief you a bit about it.

The 2003 NBA Draft is right up there as one of the best ever. This particular draft class saw LeBron James emerge as a high-school talent, who would later go on to be the face of the NBA. Several other superstars like Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, all belong to the 2003 draft class. 

Current Bucks player Kyle Korver is also part of the same draft class. The New Jersey Nets selected him as the 51st overall pick in the second round of the draft. Upon picking Korver, the Nets realized they made a blunder. The team was low on cash and wanted to make a deal by selling the draft rights of Korver to the Philadelphia 76ersThe Nets did succeed in the deal and traded Korver to the Sixers for $125,000. As Korver went to the Sixers, he later found out about how the Nets used the sum that they received. read the rest here
