      Updating to 4.1   10/27/2015

      Woohoo the update for 4.1 is out, which means lots of bug fixes and making things work better than they have on the new 4.0.x system. The upgrade to the look and feel may take a couple of hours but this default theme will be available during that time. Once the Hawksquawk theme(s) have been manually converted over I will get everyone switched back. Thanks for your patience everyone.

Net Watch - Atlanta's Right To Swap 1st Round Picks With Brooklyn

1,044 posts in this topic

Summary - The Hawks have the right to switch picks with the Nets in 2014 & 2015.

Posted Image

---------

The 2-5 Nets appear to be a train wreck. Most of their players are well over 30 and passed their prime.

I have researched but cannot find anything talking about any restrictions on the Hawks right to swap 1st round draft picks with the Nets in 2014 & 2015 (as part of the Joe Johnson trade).

I just want to be sure that if the Nets end up in the lottery, that the Hawks still have the right to swap 1st round picks with them.

Wow. That would be crazy good luck. Still i see no way they fall out of the playoffs. There just aren't more than 8 playoff teams in the east. Bucks, sixers, celtics, orlando, and charlotte are all a lock to not even try for the playoffs. That leaves Wiz, Cavs, Toronto, and Detroit all 'competing' for the final two lottery spots in the east.

I just can't see the Hawks, Knicks, or Nets being able to play bad enough to get in the lottery. This is going to be a crazy season.

Still I like the way your thinking. That would be awesome if it pans out.

You mean you think they will try to make the playoffs? I wouldn't put it past Charlotte to try. Philly i think is smarter than that and i just don't see where the Bucks have anything other than a good coach. I've been wrong plenty. Although never about the Wiz. Every year people predict the Wiz will be good and I say they will suck. They've made me look smart on that so far.

As far as I can recall, there are no restrictions. This is a straight up swap.

And further, we should be able to trade this right to swap since we still maintain a first round draft pick for the 2015 draft. We would just be making a contingent claim, "team A we will trade you our 2014 first round draft pick, which will be the greater of ours or Brooklyn, for X, Y, and Z assets."

If this is a top 10 pick and we keep it Ferry needs to win GM of the year.
