If the original team declines the offer sheet and loses the player, it receives draft picks from the player’s new team as compensation.

Compensatory draft picks are determined by the player’s new salary, on a sliding scale.

For example:

- In 2008 a team signing a restricted free agent to a salary averaging $2,615,625 to $3,923,437 per season will lose a first-round draft pick and a third-round draft pick to the player’s old team.

- Signing a restricted free agent to a contract worth over $6,539,062 per year costs a team four first-round draft picks.
