The Clippers traded 1998 second round pick (?-?) to 76ers for rights to James Collins on 1997-06-25. Maybe the progression here is wrong and should include the 76ers, and that may be why we don't have any information on a Clippers > Pistons transaction as indicated?

The above theory is supported by Patricia Bender as indicated below.

  Jelani McCoy
76ers

 

Traded rights to James Collins to Clippers for 1998 second round pick (#33-Jelani McCoy) on 1997-06-25

 

"James Cotton trade" per Patricia Bender

Thunder


Traded Eric Snow to 76ers for 1998 (or 1999 per PB & Sonics media guide) conditional second round pick (1998 #33-Jelani McCoy) on 1998-01-18
