Here is a detailed review of the pick flow:

2015 Activity
First Round: Miami’s own pick sent to Cleveland (top-10 protected through 2016, unprotected in 2017) in trade for LeBron James on 7/9/10; Cleveland traded Miami’s pick obligation to Philadelphia on 8/23/14. The NBA draft lottery, to be held on May 19, will determine the fate of this pick; the is a 90.9% chance the Heat will keep it, causing the obligation to roll to next season.

First Round: Received from Philadelphia (lottery protected through 2015; if not conveyed by 2015, will become consecutive second round picks in 2015 and 2016) in Arnett Moultrie trade on 6/28/12; sent to Boston in Joel Anthony trade on 1/15/14; has since become pair of second round picks in 2015 and 2016

Second Round: Miami’s own pick

Second Round: Received from Sacramento (exclusively 50-55 range) in Roger Mason Jr. trade on 2/20/14; if Sacramento’s pick is not between 50 and 55, then its obligation to Miami shall be extinguished; obligation has since been extinguished
