Can someone explain the OKC draft pick to me?


Hey guys, long time fan of the site, first time posting. I'm a big mavs fan, but I don't follow all the intricacies of free agency. No clue what half the lingo means. Mid level exemptions, player options, it's all gibberish to me and I'm fine with that but...

I was wondering if someone with more knowledge could explain the situation with the draft pick we owe OKC.

Even with my limited knowledge, it's clear that draft picks are becoming more and more important these days, and it sounds like this draft pick we owe OKC is hampering our ability to make deals. I feel like I've also read that whether or not OKC will use it hinges on if we make the playoffs? But is good if we make the playoffs? Or is good if we don't make it?

It's all very confusing to me. If someone could explain it all, I'd greatly appreciate it!
