Brooklyn will receive Philadelphia’s 2022 first round selection, which they can defer until 2023. That pick is unprotected. The other first round pick is protected, and is for the 2027 NBA Draft. That pick is protected from spots 1-8, which could turn into a protected 2028 pick with the same draft slot protections. If it rolls over into 2029, it will turn into cash and two second-round selections.
