Nets vs. Knicks - Draft Picks

New, comment

With the restructuring of the Marcus Williams trade and the Chris Quinn trade, the Nets have added to their stockpile of draft picks and now have 10 over the next three years, five first rounders and five second rounders. No other team has more over that period. (The Heat have eight, but several of them have extensive protections and other conditions.)

Compare that to the Knicks, who have four picks, but only two first rounders in that same three year period...two first rounders and two second rounders, but no first rounders in the deep 2010 draft.

Here's the list, with protections noted, of what the Nets and Knicks have over the next three drafts:

2010
Nets -- First round: their own pick and the Mavs' unprotected pick, obtained in the Jason Kidd trade. Second rounders: The Nets' own pick.
Knicks -- First round: none. Second round: Knicks will exercise Nuggets option to swap picks with Clippers, part of the Renaldo Balkman trade.

2011
Nets -- First round: their own pick. Second round: their own pick and the Warriors' unprotected pick, obtained in the restructuring of the Marcus Williams trade.
Knicks -- First round: their own pick. Second round: none.

2012
Nets -- First round: their own pick and Warriors' pick, protected 1-7, acquired in the restructuring of the Marcus Williams trade. (Should the Warriors' pick in the top seven in the 2012 Draft, the Nets would get the Warriors' pick in 2013, also protected 1-7. If the Warriors again pick in the top 7 in 2013, the Nets would then get the Warriors' pick in the 2014 draft, this time protected 1-6. In the unlikely event that the Warriors once again picked that high, the Nets would get the Warriors' second round picks in 2014 and 2016 instead.) Second round: their own pick plus the unprotected Heat pick acquired in the Chris Quinn trade.
Knicks -- First round: their own pick. Second round: their own pick.
