There is no easy way to figure out comp picks.
Here's the most basic way to look at it:
We signed Byrd and Lorig
we lost DLP, Jenkins and Brown.
net-net on salaries + we lost one more than we gained, so we get one pick at the lowest tier. As Brown is the lowest of the lowest, we get the last 7th round pick.
trades and cuts don't figure in

And he'd have one helluva parade as no one can parade like New Orleans...
"Jimmy Walker" ... didn't know that off the top of my head, had to look it up, ... interesting reading, they talk about how he never reached his potential as a pro b-ball player due partly to weight gain (shoulda' played pro football then, ) and how he paired with Dave Bing/Nate Archibald on the court ... pretty good company, .

Seriously?
If Godhell has to give us a comp pick you know it's going to be the very last pick of the draft. Meanwhile these other big market teams get their picks awarded in the third and fourth round. I'm calling B.S.
