So, I asked this elsewhere but never got an answer:
I'm curious as to how trades regarding draft position work--specifically when they are announced. Say, for instance, hypothetically in dreamland, the Celtics trade 16,28,33 and 45 for the Knicks 4th pick. When would I, as a viewer, be made aware of said transaction? Would I only find out after the Knicks picked someone at 4? Or would I have to wait until the Celtics made their selection at 16? I wouldn't have to wait all the way to 45 to find out about the trade, will I?
Frankly, I just want to know when I can expect the news that we've traded ___X___ for ___higher pick___. If we get all the way through the first round and there's no news of a trade, does that mean a trade (up) isn't happening?
