OK, so in the rules it says: 5) every team has to use their 1st round pick at least once in every 2 years
Does this mean that they have to use THEIR pick, or just have a pick in the year. According to the NBA they just need to have A pick every 2 years:http://members.cox.net/lmcoon/salarycap.htm
74. How are draft picks handled in trades?
Teams are required to have only a first round pick, and not necessarily their first round pick. So teams may trade away their own future picks in consecutive years if they have another team's first round pick in one of those years.
