Traded Second-Round Picks For 2021 NBA Draft

We’re using the space below to keep tabs on each NBA team’s second-round pick for 2021, continually updating it as necessary throughout the year. Our list of traded first-round picks for 2021 can be found right here.

We’ve listed all 30 teams here, so even if a team hasn’t traded its second-round pick, that will be noted. We’ll also provide details on protections for each traded pick, including what happens to the pick in 2022 if it doesn’t change hands in 2021.
