Trades and pick protections

1. Boston owns the rights to swap first-round picks with Brooklyn.
2. The Lakers will send their first-round pick to the 76ers if it falls outside the top three.
3. Philadelphia owns the rights to swap picks with Sacramento inside the top 10. If the Kings' pick falls out of the top 10, it will go to the Bulls.
4. New Orleans will send its first-round pick to Sacramento if it falls outside the top three.

Hoping for some luck on 5/16!!!!!!!!!

God I would love to somehow end up with a top 4 pick, trade Melo to the Blazers, get Aminu, picks 15 & 26 & Turner + trading KOQ & a 2nd rounder for another pick between 20-30.

No 1-3 or 7-10.

There's a bylaw written in tiny font that each commissioner can give the Knicks the #1 pick once, so let's hope Silver decides this is the time to do it. We really need some goddamn luck.

That is because the top three picks are also top five picks (ie #3 is in the top 5). That is why the odds of top 3, top 4, and top 5 are the same for us.
This franchise has beaten me down to the point that 42 wins would feel like a successful season.

Like I said in another thread I dont think there's much difference in caliber from like 5-8 so as long as we stay in that region I'm cool. What I would REALLY love is if we can grab another 1st rounder through a Melo trade.

IF we could go into training camp/pre-season/reg season with 3-4 decent rookies on our roster I'd be much more interested in watching us

I'm pretty sure the 10th pick is still technically possible but rounded to 0. The 4th, 5th and 6th are completely out.

With our luck I am sure we will at least drop one place :( So I predict we will land the 8th pick >:(

That's crazy that we have a shot at 1-3 but not 4-6!

Note that the 10th isn't actually 0. It's just so small that it rounds to 0.0. But IT COULD HAPPEN

4-6 can't happen though. It's actually 0.
