Our pick situation is confusing, but basically, if neither MIN nor MEM make the play-offs, we'll still owe PHX a pick next year. If we traded a future pick, there would have to be a clause in there that if the PHX obligation wasn't paid off, it would have to be two years after PHX. We could trade the rights to the 2013 pick (trading the 2012 doesn't matter) with those same conditions.
As for value, I would not trade an unprotected 1st for expiring JJ Redick. Best I would do is Top 12 protected. Last year, we gave a #16 for Buddinger for one year and his rights, and while JJ is better, Buddinger was sitting on a $885,120 contract that helped us meet some very stringent needs for cap space. Redick is sitting on $6.2, and we don't know how much we would need to match offers next year.
If neither MIN or MEM make the playoffs, then you will put off on giving PHX a pick in 2013. Since both picks are lottery proected, you would keep your pick and MEM would keep theirs. Actually, there is a slim chance that you would miss the playoffs and still have to give your pick to PHX. That's if you finish 9th seed and just barely miss it and you ended up with the 14th pick after the lottery concluded. Since your pick to PHX is only Top 13 protected. MEM's pick is Top 14 protected, so if they miss the playoffs, their pick is definitely theirs to keep.
Realistically though, there is no way I see MEM missing the playoffs. They are just too good this year. They will end up giving you thier pick and if it's lower than yours this year (likely) and you will end up giving it to PHX. Debt paid and you'll end up keeping your own 1st rounder in 2013. I see you guys making the playoffs btw. IF you don't, Love will be upset and could cause more tension. I think you guys are in win now mode.
Your 2014 1st rounder should 99.9% chance be your own. What I did notice though is that you guys don't own your 2013 2nd rounder. You owe it to Portland. But you will receive a 2nd rounder from OKC and Brooklyn in 2013.
I still would trade Redick for your 2014 1st rounder (Top 10 protection) and the Brooklyn 2013 2nd rounder. Plus, we'd take on a bad contract like Roy or Ridnour...and Cunningham or Steisma to make salaries work. Thoughts?
