No - the picks don't count in the salary calculation. Also, there are rules about how many first round draft picks you're allowed to trade. You're not allowed to trade first round picks in consecutive drafts (although the rule might not apply if you have more than 2 first round picks in a particular draft). Since the Raptors traded their 2008 first round pick (Roy Hibbert) in the Jermaine O'Neal trade, Colangelo could only offer the first rounders in 2010 and 2012.
