Second round picks could be sold for the maximum $3.4 million amount allowed on draft night.
In the past, second round picks could be acquired for a relatively cheap amount. The most a pick was acquired for was $1.5 million last season when the New York Knicks acquired the 35th overall pick to select Willy Hernangomez.
Buying second round gives teams short on selections a chance to buy their way back into the process.
The most ever paid for a second-round pick is $3 million, which Oklahoma City paid Atlanta to acquire 31st overall pick Tibor Pleiss in 2010.
