The four-way mess involving the Cavaliers’, Rockets’, Trail Blazers’, and Magic’s second round picks is somewhat confusing, so here’s a quick breakdown of how it would work based on this year’s projected standings:

Let’s assume the Rockets finish first among those four teams, followed by the Trail Blazers, Cavaliers, and Magic. In that scenario…

  • The Magic would keep their own pick (the most favorable of the four).
  • The Kings would get the Cavaliers’ pick (the second-most favorable out of the Orlando, Cleveland, and Houston picks).
  • The Knicks would get the Rockets’ pick (the least favorable of the Orlando, Cleveland, and Houston picks).
  • The Clippers would get the Blazers’ pick (the less favorable of the Portland and Orlando picks).
