Hey, guess what, Nets may get extra second round pick!!

USA TODAY Sports

Last January, we revealed the Nets had to swap their 2014 and 2015 first round picks with the Haws as part of the Joe Johnson trade. We found the information on the RealGM's Future Traded Pick Details page. It wasn't something that was disclosed at the time of the trade six months earlier.

So we decided to take a look at the page again Monday. Wow! We've learned that one minor detail of the Paul Pierce - Kevin Garnett trade hadn't been revealed either. The Nets could wind up with the Celtics second rounder in 2017!  Rejoice!!

Here's how RealGM, which is authoritative in these matters, describes the previously undisclosed aspect of the Draft Night trade...

2017 second round draft pick from Boston
If Boston exercises its right to swap its 2017 1st round pick for Brooklyn's 2017 1st round pick, then Boston will convey its 2017 2nd round pick to Brooklyn protected for selections 31-45 (if this pick falls within its protected range and is therefore not conveyed, then Boston's obligation to Brooklyn will be extinguished) [Boston-Brooklyn, 7/12/2013]; this potential pick conveyance is the same as the one described in "2017 first round draft pick from Brooklyn" on Boston Credits

So, what does that mean? It means that if the Nets pick is higher than the Celtic pick in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, the Nets will have to give it up to the Celtics. BUT if that happens, then the Nets get the rights to the Celtics second round pick as long as it's not between #31 and #45!!  Not such a big deal, but considering the Nets don't have their second round picks in 2014, 2015, 2016 (likely swap with Clippers), and 2017, we'll take it!!
