There are good trades, bad trades, lopsided trades, cap trades and fatal trades. And every once in a while, there is a trade that makes so little sense it defies any known convention for labeling what just happened.

Leave it to the Warriors and Mavs, and owners Chris Cohan and Mark Cuban, to come in with an "all of the above" in what has to be described simply as the most bizarre trade in recent history.

My word for it? Salary crap.
