Sept. 10, 1976
Kings trade Tiny Archibald to the Nets for Jim Eakins, Brian Taylor and two first-round picks
The Nets acquired Archibald, a future Hall of Famer, after several dominant seasons in Kansas City. In fact, during the 1972-73 season, Archibald became the first and only player to lead the league in both points and assists. Archibald?s stay was short, though, as the Nets shipped him to the Buffalo Braves less than a year later. The two first-round picks the Nets sent to Kansas City wound up being Otis Birdsong and Phil Ford.
