Every trade involving a 2014 NBA draft pick

Jun 27, 2014, 9:25 AM EDT

Nearly a third – 19 of 60 – picks in the 2014 NBA draft were traded.

Some of the deals are official, and some can’t be completed until July, but that’s only a technicality.

Here’s my best attempt at compiling every trade involving a 2014 NBA draft pick:

    NBA history was made last night as the Pelicans traded a player to themselves! Wow…talk about getting fleeced by the other GM! Rofl…

    “The Pelicans traded Russ Smith (No. 47) to the Pelicans for Pierre Jackson”

    I was so so happy when Payton got moved to the Magic. I wanted him there the whole time and I can see this Magic roster going far. They’ve got an identity now – SUPER strong defensively and great athletes in transition plus Vucevic to play in the post (most underrated dude in the league I think) so this team I think had awesome potential. Not sold on Vaughn as a coach though, that may need work. Lionel Hollins?

    Forgot the move Thunder/Hornets Made. Hornets gave up Semaj Christon (sp?) in exchange for cash.

    Philly gets a “F” for the draft.

    You don’t draft and then stay terrible.

    You draft to add players that help you win now. They had a chance to be Phoenix before Jeff hornacek came. Now they’re the Suns of 2004 except no prime FAs like Steve Nash or Quentin Richardson (18+ ppg in 2004) come.

    Embiid is a 3.4 foul per game player in 23 minutes w/no track record of good health.

    Will Saric come this year??

    As for Denver, their picks don’t help them be a top 4 seed when they are talented when healthy.

    The Nuggets get a “C”.

    The Bulls get a “B-” because they brought the Brian Scalabrine effect for fans. McDermott needs next offseason to trim off fat and be more athletic, but he’s a good long term fit.

      ‘You draft to add players that help you win now’

      Unless your team ISN’T in a position ‘to win now’.

      Damn son, you even watch basketball???

        It’s a slap in the face of anyone who even remotely cares about that basketball team that the 6ers just basically excused another year of not even trying.

        There is something fundamentally wrong with thinking losing is a good thing on any level

      • rajbais - Jun 27, 2014 at 2:23 PM

        Yes. If not … increase the win totals. They’re not even a 25 win team with this newest nucleus.

      • rajbais - Jun 27, 2014 at 2:23 PM

        If you don’t aim to win now you can’t increase your win totals from the previous year. That’s it.

    Miami will regret trading PJ Hairston. Good for Charlotte, MJ always look out for his Tar Heels family. If the Hornets were a stock this would be a good time to buy.

    Can someone explain why Philadelphia took Payton at 10 and then traded for the Magic’s #12 pick in Saric? Why not take Saric at 10 and keep the 2017 first round pick?

    • spursareold - Jun 27, 2014 at 11:56 AM

      Philly RECEIVED a 2017 first rounder for moving back two spots, they didn’t give one up.

      The 76ers traded Elfrid Payton (No. 10) to the Magic for Dario Saric (No. 12), a 2017 first rounder (top-11 protected and top-eight protected in 2018) and 2015 second rounder

      • canetic - Jun 27, 2014 at 1:04 PM

        Ah. That makes more sense. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Also missed Bucks/Nets trade that went down late.

  8. cberkhous - Jun 27, 2014 at 1:23 PM

    Does it make sense that the Jazz traded a high 2nd rounder this year to Memphis for what most likely will be a late 2nd rounder in to 2016? Were they just that desperate to get rid of the pick? I would have thought they could have at least got a 1st or maybe two 2nds.

    Did Xavier Thames get traded nowhere?
