LOL

Picks are nice but being married to every one of them is silly.

"NY would prefer not to add a second rounder in order to deal Lee"

Yeah - and I'd prefer not to lose my hair...

Point taken...

Fortunately, for you, Phool ascribed to that point of view, and traded away quite a few second rounders, both to draft Hernan-Gomez, and, as you intimate, as a useful tool with which to get rid of a contract, such as Lee (or in Phool's case, Travis Outlaw).  I believe we have already traded our own 2020 and 2021 second rounders.  We got back some second rounders from Charlotte in exchange for Wily. 

Checking NBADraft.net, we are projected to have our own #9 and #39 picks for the summer of 2019, based on our 2017-2018 W-L.  I'm aware that you yawn at the mention of Mitchell Robinson, but THAT was a sweet project to fall in our laps at #36 (thanks to the Chicago Bulls by way of the OKC Thunder and the earthly remains of Carmelo Anthony). 

Again, I invite your derision by mentioning Ainge, who made a point of stockpiling draft picks, doling them out as he did with the Nyets #1 when he had an opportunity to offload it for Kyrie Irving. 

We got Dotson with a second rounder.  We got Robinson with a second rounder. 

And hey, now that I think of it, back in the day, we got PHIL JACKSON with a second rounder.

And...

AND?
