In other words can we trade for option to:
a)swap NY Denver picks
b)do not trade for the swap, but take away Denvers option to swap
Can we somehow get NY pick to become unprotected without trading for Denvers 2016 1st?
Sure. It would probably be worded something like "DEN relinquishes right to swap." Or you could go all the way and it could be "TOR receives right to swap NYK 2016 pick with DEN 2016 pick."
In terms of protections, swaps, etc, you can pretty much do whatever you want, so long as you don't violate the 7 year or Stepien rule.
