The Golden State Warriors traded away Mitch Richmond for the draft rights to Billy Owens in 1991 to the Sacramento Kings.

Owens was an NBA All-Rookie First Team selection and was part of Don Nelson's plan to give the Warriors more size.

"it was the worst trade I've ever made," said Don Nelson. "Mitch was a star. That's the one regret I have of my career."

Richmond was voted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this year.

The Warriors drafted Latrell Sprewell in 1992 and became their starting point guard.
