Can we use a 1st round pick in a trade?
I know this has been discussed before and the consensus was that no, we can't trade a 1st round pick coz of our obligation to houston (now OKC.)
but i was just on RealGM looking up future draft pick ownerships and saw this in orlando's list about their 1st rounder that came from the 76ers in the howard trade.
2015 first round draft pick from Philadelphia
Philadelphia's own 2015 1st round pick to Orlando two years after Philadelphia satisfies their obligation to convey a 1st round pick to Miami (Top-14 Protected in the 2015 NBA Draft, top-14 protected in 2016, top-11 protected in 2017 and top-8 protected in the 2018 NBA Draft.). If Philadelphia does not send Orlando a first round pick by the 2018 NBA Draft, they Philadelphia shall convey their own 2018 and 2019 second round picks to Orlando. [Denver - L.A. Lakers - Orlando - Philadelphia, 8/10/2012]
have i got something wrong there? Also, if philly haven't done it by 2018 they only have to give 2 2nd rounders!? not bad for them!?
