Pelton: Trail Blazers Likely to Keep 2013 First Round Pick
Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

For those who might not be aware, Portland sent a conditional first round draft pick to Charlotte as a part of the trade that netted the Trail Blazers Gerald Wallace (which, in turn, allowed the Trail Blazers to trade Wallace to the Nets for what ended up being the pick that became Damian Lillard). The condition of that first round pick, at least this season, is Top-12 protected, meaning that if the Trail Blazers end up with the 12th pick or better, they retain the pick. If it's 13th or worse, the pick goes to Charlotte.
