Could someone elaborate for me on the Houston draft pick that we received as part of the Jeremy Lin deal? Let's suppose that Harden and Howard go down with injuries, and they end up in the top 10. Does that pick come to us, or is it protected?

Odd place to ask this question, but it's protected in the top 20. If for whatever reason Houston is one of the bottom 20 teams in the League this upcoming season, they keep their pick.

really...thought it was only lottery protected? man that trade wasn't as beneficial as I thought. We didn't even get this sort of protection on either pick we gave up for Nash :bang:

edit WOW-2015 second round draft pick from L.A. Clippers
L.A. Clippers' 2015 2nd round pick to the L.A. Lakers (via Toronto to Houston) protected for selections 31-50 and 56-60 (if this pick falls within either of its protected ranges and is therefore not conveyed, then the L.A. Clippers' obligation to the L.A. Lakers will be extinguished

yea we aint getting that 2nd rd pick either :man10:

It's lottery protected.

Yeah I can't find the top 20 report that I keep using.

Disregard the top 20 thing.

It's lottery protected? God, that just pisses me off to no end. Sure, the likelihood of Houston NOT getting into the lottery would be astronomical, but just heaving a sliver of a chance of getting a top 10 pick, would have been nice.

Man.... I'll be glad when this thread is no longer in the LD zone of the forum.... what a freaking disaster this has been.
