NBA Draft Picks Owed

on

Draft picks are the biggest variables in the NBA. They can change the complexion of any trade and a franchise’s fortunes completely. They’re coveted assets, and as a result they’re constantly being flipped from team to team across the league. In fact, picks get traded so often that it’s difficult to keep track of who they belong to and where they came from. But, we have you taken care of. Here is a list of all future draft picks that have been traded. This is broken down by year and round, with the team receiving the pick named followed by where the pick comes from.
