    Default Draft game

    So let's say you found a fine amount of money in your backyard and got yourself an expansion franchise. Then let's say the league decides that there shall be no expansion draft, but instead you'd be allowed to build an entire roster with the first 12 picks of the 2014 Draft.

    1. What would it look like? Remember that you need to build a roster, not select the best players available.
    2. What would your team record be next year?
    3. What would its ceiling be, let's say, 5-7 years from now, provided you can't make any trade?

    Go!

    I was going to do this but then I realized what an incredible amount of time waste that would be.

    My issue is...why wouldn't you draft BPA anyway? Yeah that might be a slightly different 12 from person to person....but wouldn't that give you the best assets? Then you'd have more pieces of value to trade with on your roster. Would you not be allowed to make any trades for 5-7 years either?

    Otherwise you'll be reaching big time on guys to try and fit them in rather than drafting better players who would be unhappy with their role or not fit very well as reserves....

    Well I did say that the rule was you could not make any trades...

    My imagination isn't good enough for this game. All I can see is half your team being upset at never being given the chance to prove themselves

    Might be easier if it were to be something like the first six picks of each round

    I'll play.

    Exum, Harris, Wiggins, Vonleh, Embiid

    Ennis, Stauskas, Parker, Randle, Nurkic

    Gordon, Young

    Kinda easy though I guess...

    Got enough shooter with Harris, Stauskas, Vonleh, Parker, Young

    Enough D with Harris, Wiggins, Embiid, Gordon, Young

    Enough multiposition guys to mix and match - Exum, Wiggins, Vonleh, and I think Gordon (could probably guard some centers)

    Distributor Ennis, Scorers, etc.
