Which of these trades was the best 'single' trade for the Utah Jazz?

I spent some time today looking at the franchise history, and the types of trades the Jazz franchise has made. And the readers on twitter also helped in compiling a pretty substantive list - effectively the 75 most important trades in franchise history. (If not the 75 total trades in franchise history) During this period I learned a lot about the Jazz team and our history. Some great things were happening, but started with the smallest, almost insignificant pebble falling into a still pond. Only for the ripples of that effect to continually expand until that singular drop became a near torrential wave.

For example, the smallest part of attaining Deron Williams (and then later Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Marvin Williams, and a future pick) all started with trading a 'way in the future' 2004 2nd round pick, who would eventually become Ricky Minard.

I'm not going to make this a super long post . . . but here are the Top trades in Jazz franchise history. Vote on the one you think was the 'single' best trade. Take into account what the team has done after the trade went down as well, not just what the trade looks like "on paper".
