aside from the fact that one doesn't have to do with the other, this move isn't really "throwing away money."
it's really so that they can continue to trade away expiring contracts and still be able to field an affordable team (so that they can sign lebron and co.) i hope i explained it well enough, it's kind of weird.
they even say it in the article:
"Certain teams, they may want to preserve cap space for the next year or two and they may need to add players," Kupchak said. "A good way to add talent at a fixed price is to have a lot of draft choices and then you can still maintain cap space a year from now."
