The Deron Williams picks are all used as well, I believe. He's been here 2 years already. I'm pretty sure they only traded 2 1sts (and Favors and Harris) and one of the picks wasn't even theirs.
Yeah, that's what I meant. They had a bunch of picks that were originally from other teams (obviously with varying protections). If I remember correctly, as I'm far too lazy to look it up, I believe one was Houston, maybe one was the Clippers or Timberwolves. I could be mixing this up with the Knicks. But I feel like when it was Nets/Knicks in the race to trade for Carmelo, they were saying the Nets could trade X players and up to 4 1st round picks, with at most 2 of them being their own. Those must have been the ones they were dealing to still have all of their current/future first rounders available.
