Toines Boys receive 2017 #10 pick.
Toine's Boys trade #26 pick and gives Gainesville the right to swap 2018 1sts with TB
Interesting. I will have a tad more to say about this soon. We've never done this that I'm aware of but I don't think we have a rule against it.
I think we have done swaps before. It's been a while. I may be mixing up the H2H league.
We def. have in the H2H league (though outlawed mulitple *swaps* and 2nd round swaps/conditions b/c SOMEONE (an ex-GM) was getting out of hand with it).
I think Eja's right -- no rule against it here.
Just thinking out loud.
I like the league to be as NBAish as possible (in a manner of speaking) partly for simplicity and whatnot.
My research tells me a major reason pick swaps happen is that there is a rule in the NBA that a team can't trade first rounders in consecutive years. So that's why the Celts and Nets pick swapped this year. The Nets COULDN'T trade their pick this year, because the Celts got their picks last year and next. But they could swap.
I care not.
However....to point out...this is why there was/is no danger at all of the Nets trading away a swap righted pick (and really the Celts couldn't either.)
If Toines and Gains do this they have to keep their picks for the year right? Like Gains can't trade to someone the right to swap with Toines. By the same token Toines can't trade something or other ....like say to the guy right above Gains thinking "that's where I'll pick anyway"
Like the picks have to be kept and untraded until final standings/lottery takes place and the trade activates or expires.
Then they could conceivably trade their newly acquired (or kept) pick should they want to.
Actually I'd disagree, though I do think folks should be clear.
In the absence of a rule (or Commish edict) I'd say this is how it works.
The Gainesville Red Claws' pick retains the right to swap with TB's pick.
Obviously I'm betting/hoping that TB finishes lower than the GRC, so unless i get a really good offer am unwilling to trade my pick -- that is eligible to be swapped for TBs.
But let's say Utah get's tired of Gobert and Jokic and offers both for my pick. Utah would get the GRC pick -- which has with it the option of swapping with the TB pick.
Or, let's say Eja offers David Nawaba to TB for his 2018 #1 pick. Eja would be getting the TB with the understanding that while it may be projected as #3 when he dealt for it, is eligible to drop from #3 to #20, where Gainevsille is picking after shocking the league with an improbable title followed by a Celtics-like swap for TB's #3 pick.
TL;DR --- i think the picks can be traded but the swap rights go with the picks to the new owners, they don't stay with Gainesville/Toines.
