Two days after completing a trade that seemed too good to be true, the Utah Jazz found out that it was.

Utah, which had long coveted a center who can average double figures scoring per game, thought it had finally landed one on Monday when it traded Greg Foster, Chris Morris and its No. 1 pick in the NBA draft to the Orlando Magic for Rony Seikaly. But Seikaly never showed up and the Jazz had to void the deal.
