When your a middle of the pack NBA team, you might consider doing that. Why in the world would they give a pick with that kind of protection just to shed salary? At least we got Lowry back. I would have given them Calderon
for Gordon. They should have made it lottery protected. I wouldn't be surpised that this pick comes back to haunt them one day.
the first-round pick going to Charlotte is lottery-protected in 2013, top-eight protected in 2014, top-one protected in 2015 and unprotected in 2016.
