We would have had the last pick in the 1st round (#30) if not for the trade. Because we had an identical record to Chicago, we had to flip a coin and ended up losing the toss. In that trade with Golden State, we got an upgrade talent-wise, and a better fit for the team, and basically sold our 1st round pick to them for $11 million.
