Trade Machine Contest: Post your best unrealistic trade ideas

USA TODAY Sports

Give us your best worst trade ideas.

Summer is starting to drag and there's precious little news to digest, so let's have some fun today. The idea is simple, go have fun with ESPN's Trade Machine. Ok, so half of you do this anyway, and often get roundly mocked for the ideas you come up with. Here's where it gets interesting though. I want your best worst ideas!

Common sense is no object. Money is no object (except for matching salaries). Don't worry about draft picks because there's no need to make trades "equal." We're going for the most lopsided deals you can think of.

In fact, there's no real obstacle here except the laws of the trade machine (CBA rules). So you can't package Kris Humphries or Gerald Wallace with someone else (at least not until September, which doesn't help you today). You can't trade Bogans until December, so no dice there either.

Here's the goal - to add or subtract the most wins via the "Hollinger's Analysis" number at the bottom of each completed trade.

For example, try to beat this one: James Harden for Kris Humphries = +13 wins

Or going the other direction: Rajon Rondo for Charlie Villanueva = -7 wins

If you are curious (or sentimental for years gone past), Jeff Green for Kendrick Perkins nets us a -3 wins.

Get the idea? Have fun with it. Bonus points will be awarded to the most creative ideas (but there's really no prize, so you'll just be enjoying fame and the adoration of your peers).
