Speaking of Bobby Jones and George McGinnis, they were traded for one another after the 1977-78 season with Jones going to the 76ers and McGinnis going the other way to the Nuggets. Big George had been an All Star level performer with the Pacers in the ABA and then in the NBA for the Sixers. He averaged 22.6 ppg and 11.4 rpg in his first year in Denver, but then fell apart and was out of basketball after the 1981-82 season. In Philly, Jones ended up winning a title in 1982-83 and was 1st team All Defense 6 times and 2nd team on another occasion.
