Can someone clarify exactly what draft picks we owe and when?

Minneapolis/St. Paul – The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has acquired 6-9 forward Michael Beasley from the Miami Heat in exchange for the Wolves' second-round picks in the 2011 and 2014 NBA Drafts and cash considerations.

Beasley, 21, was the second overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. An NBA All-Rookie First Team selection following the 2008-09 season, Beasley averaged 14.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steals in 78 games (all starts) for the Heat during the 2009-10 campaign. In his two NBA seasons, Beasley owns career averages of 14.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 159 career games.

A unanimous First Team All-American and the Big 12 Player of the Year following his lone season at Kansas State, Beasley averaged 26.2 points, 12.4 rebounds 1.64 blocks, 1.27 steals and 1.2 assists in 33 collegiate games. Beasley was also named the National Freshman of the Year by both The Sporting News and the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA), and also received the Pete Newell Big Man of the Year award from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). Beasley led the nation in rebounding and ranked third in scoring during his one season with the Wildcats.

Minneapolis/St. Paul - The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has acquired 6-9 forward Michael Beasley from the Miami Heat in exchange for the Wolves' second-round picks in the 2011 and 2014 NBA Drafts and cash considerations. As part of the deal, the Heat will also have the right to swap first-round picks with the Wolves in a future draft.

Which is correct as far as the Beasley trade?  Seems strange that the Presser cited originally on this site differs from what they currently have posted.  Did this get added back in?  Originally it was reported this way correct?  Maybe the Wolves site was never updated?

Also...any clarification on the 2nd rounder going to Cleveland?  What year?  Any protection?  Some were upset that we had to give up a pick, but maybe it's one of those protections like we gave to Philly for the pick/Carney a couple years back...they get it if it's below 55 or something?

Small details I know, but it's the offseason.
