The conditions on that pick? It is protected through the first 55 selections that year. The Heat only gets it if it is No. 56, No. 57, No. 58, No. 59 or No. 60.

In other words, unless Memphis finishes with one of the five worst records in 2011-12, the Heat would otherwise get nothing.

Actually, Memphis would have to finish with one of the 5 best records, not worst records. If Memphis has one of the 5 worst records, the pick will be from # 31-35.

Justin, I think you need to rethink your math. The pick was conditional second round, and therefore it is accurate they would have to have one of the five worst records in the league for the Heat to acquire it.

No, Justin had it correct in his correction of the author. The Grizzlies made the same conditional 2nd round pick deal with the Houston Rockets in exchange for taking on Steve Francis a few weeks ago. Unless they have one of the 5 best records in the league, they keep the pick.

Justin is correct: picks 56 thru 60 are the last five picks in the second round, thus they go to the teams with the five BEST records. BeGeezus is too hung up on the word 'conditional' to figure it out.

Alonzo is done. Why does anyone want to see his tired old bones dragged onto the court? To see him and the heat get spanked in the first round?

Do something for the League and develop some young players. Get the ball out of wade's hands and bring in a real point guard.
