The Evil One comes to the podium to announce the first pick of the draft, or so you think.
"There has been a trade", he hisses.
"The Los Angeles Lakers get the 19th pick in the draft, and future conditional draft picks from Memphis and Sacramento."
"Cleveland gets Lebron James"
"As part of the trade, both Dwight Howard and Lebron James have agreed to five year maximum contracts".
Net result for the Cavs: both first round picks this year, and the future picks we hold from Miami, Sacramento, and Memphis for Lebron with a max contract. We still have about $8M in cap space left, plus our exceptions.
