After the Nets recent spate of trades involving draft picks, we figured we’d update the team’s outlook. Bottom line: they have first rounders in every draft through 2026 — all but one their own — and at least nine seconds.

Here’s the year-to-year listing...

2020 - First round: Nets hold the 76ers first round (lottery protected) from Draft Night 2019 trade with Clippers

Second round:

Trail Blazers heavily protected (31-55) from Jeremy Lin salary dump;

Nuggets unprotected from Kenneth Faried salary dump;

Pacers protected 45-60 from Thaddeus Young for Caris LeVert trade (Pick

conveys only if Pacers fail to make playoffs. Pick becomes two seconds in 2023

if not conveyed before then)

———————

2021 - First round: their own pick

Second round:

Raptors unprotected pick from Greg Monroe salary dump;

Suns lightly protected pick (31-35) from Darrell Arthur salary dump;

Hawks unprotected pick from Allen Crabbe for Taurean Prince trade

———————-

2022 - First round: their own pick

Second round: their own pick.

2023 - First round: their own pick

Second round: pick may be swapped with Hawks as part of Lin salary dump.

2024 - First round: their own pick

Second round: their own pick

2025 - First round: their own pick

Second round: NO pick, traded in Jeremy Lin salary dump.
