PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Trail Blazers have acquired forward Gerald Wallace from the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for center Joel Przybilla, forward Dante Cunningham, forward/center Sean Marks, a 2011 conditional first round pick acquired from New Orleans and a conditional 2013 first round pick, it was announced today by General Manager Rich Cho.
The conditional pick in 2011 was top 7 protected in 2011, top 8 protected in 2012, 2013 and 2014. We didn't pick that high last draft so the pick wasn't protected but I wonder if the same protection rules apply for our 2013 pick? So if we end up sucking again next season we should still have a chance to get one of the top 3 picks.
Can anyone confirm this theory?
