I lol'd at that pic you posted, jeff. MJ is a HORRIBLE GM/owner.
I guess we won't know what Charlotte is doing until we know the details of the protection clause. If it is only top 3 or top 5 protected, then Charlotte might still get a lotto out of this, since Detroit probably won't make the playoffs in the next couple of years but is also good enough to avoid the top 5 of the draft (unless the ping pong balls provide luck).

So, in that scenario, MJ is essentially paying $13 mill for a mid to late lotto pick from Detroit.
