    The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired the Los Angeles Lakers’ first round pick in the 2012 NBA Draft (lottery-protected) and forwards Jason Kapono and Luke Walton from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for guard Ramon Sessions and guard/forward Christian Eyenga. Additionally, the Cavaliers received the right to swap their least favorable first round pick in the 2013 NBA Draft with the Lakers (Please note: the Cavaliers currently own their own first round pick and Miami’s) and cash considerations.

    Looks like we can also swap our own pick next year. Here's to hoping the Heat and Lakers tank next year!

    Bravo, Chris Grant, bravo.
    if the lakers had the right as originally reported, it locked us into a high pick next year. Even if the heat struggle, we would have had a late pick. This way, if either team struggle, we improve our pick.

    Any analysis that has the Lakers winning the trade is looking at what the deal does for the two teams THIS season. This is not the mindset the franchise needs right now, and I'm relieved to see its not. Now, the next step is to buy out Jamison.

    That pick-swap has the potential to be fricken gold. At the very least it's going to be able to move us up at least a few spots in the 2013 draft.

    Well done, Chris.

    Because I created the poll when I thought the Lakers had the option to swap picks.

    No lottery-protection is mentioned about the 2013 Lakers pick (but is mentioned about the 2012 pick). I realize it's very unlikely to happen, but I also would be shocked if the Lakers didn't write that into the official trade language.

    So: Cavs still have their 2013 1st round draft pick from Miami... They just gave the right to LA to swap positions with them in the 2013 draft if they want...
    That looks a little loud in the retrospectiscope

    So, The Cavs revived Sessions career after rotting in the triangle offense. Drafted a player he would never legitely start over. And made up for taking away his starting spot by trading him to a championship contender. If I was Sessions, I would be in love with the Cavs organization.

    Underrated part of the trade:

    We never have to watch Kyrie sit in the corner as Sessions' tries (and fails) to run the offense by himself. His minutes should increase as well. An all-around win.

    Yes, the pick swap evens things up much more.

    Still not thrilled with eating Walton's contract--that alone I thought was worth a 1st.

    The value of multiple first round picks is in the flexibilty to target and aquire a higher pick or sweeten a trade in a more precise way. The 22nd pick and some expiring contract to move up 6 spots and get somene you really need for example
    'The truth is in the middle' apparently
