Team giving up the player doesn't want picks. So they threaten to match (thus depriving the signing team of getting the player they want) unless they agree on a secondary trade where the picks are given back for a better return. Sometimes no deal is reached and the contract is matched, sometimes it is and contract isn't matched and the secondary trade then happens.
