Soo I hear that Chicago owns their 1st round pick. So does that mean if the bobcats have the number 1 pick does it goes to Chicago? ?

No. There are protections on it through 2015 I believe. There is a zero percent chance the Bulls can get the pick this year.

I remember hearing something about that too... but I had only heard it from one source and I forget where it was, and every article I've read has been talking as if the Bobcats have their first round pick this year. I am also confused. Maybe it's a protected pick or something?

It goes unprotected in 2014 I think. All I know is that it isn't this year.

No, it's lottery protected.

Thanks. Kemba Walker and Anthony Davis is a great start to rebuild

Providing they win the lottery, which I sort of doubt they will.

They aren't guaranteed the first pick.

Agreed. The team with the best odds (25%) almost never wins. I have a feeling the #1 pick is going to the Hornets.

The Bobcats needs the 1st pick but really, i doubt they get it.

I believe they'll get it too.

Was this part of the Tyrus Thomas deal? If so, wow.... the Bobcats front office is freaking stupid. Not that we didn't already know that, but Tyrus Thomas? Really?

And this is why we value that pick a bit too much cause we got it for Vyrus :dance2:

Yes.

Who they extended for 5 years 40mil the following year. Yup.

But ya, this pick should hopefully not be something to think about for a few years.

It's top 14 protected this year
top 12 protected in 2013
top 10 protected in 2014
top 8 protected in 2015
unprotected in 2016

By the way, that's simply horrid protection. To go from 8 to unprotected is pretty stupid.

This confuses me. Does Chicago have Charlottes first round pick in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016? What does "protected" mean if the player is already on the Bobcats in 2013...

That means that Chicago is going to have a top three pick in 2014 lol

It means this. Charlotte owes Chi-town a first-round draft pick, but Charlotte gets to keep it for the first few seasons if that picks happens to be as low or lower than the protected number. That last season it is unprotected which means it goes to Chicago regardless of what position the Bobcats are in.

Super.

It means if the pick is in the top whichever is protected it rolls over to the next year and so forth until it's used

watch the bobcats and michael jordan with a head coach of patrick ewing

Trade the #1 pick for Howard
Acquire Dwill from BK
and S&T DJ Augustine for a solid SG, SF or PF

Not really. Do you expect the Bulls to allow the Bobcats to protect it for ten seasons? This is pretty standard. The Bobcats expect to make the playoffs sometime in the next four seasons, therefore the pick will be late lottery or lower.

Question: If Chicago became eligible to claim the pick for say, year 2015, is it possible for the Bulls to pass on the pick and get it 2016?

I think it's stupid that you can put any protection on a pick. If you want a player badly enough, be ballzy enough to expect to be a good team or don't make the deal.

While teams think it's a good thing to protect their pick, I feel like often it comes back to bite them because they lose it in strong drafts after collecting high picks in weak drafts and no longer even having the player they traded for the year the pick goes unprotected.

For instance, the Timberwolves got to keep Randy Foye and Corey Brewer in the first 2 years of production. Would you rather have them or a lottery pick in this draft. Jaric isn't even in the league anymore.

Na, but they should have included a top 3 protection instead ending it at such a low pick.
