Traded • Larry McNeill to Nets for • 1977 third round pick (#45-Bill Paterno) • cash on 1976-09-09

 

The above is per a UPI report, exept they report the date of the trade was 09-20.

 

TSN shows this pick going from the Nets to the Kings in the Nate Archibald trade, which is confusing because no description of that trade has included a third round pick. Their information could simply be wrong.
