any update on our fantasy draft?
I actually really like this idea suggested by Coastal for deciding the draft order.
I guess now that the Lottery has already been decided we may get more people disagreeing, but as commish, I would say going forward, this will be how we decide draft order, unless there are any serious contentions.
So with that, the Lottery Picks for 2013 will go as follows:
Thats assuming Coastal placed those in the correct order. I just got in last night from Italy, and work today has been crazy, so I will double check his efforts, but I have to assume he was accurate.1. Koncept
5. The Coach
6. Mack North
7. Keeping it Real

Not much time at hand at the moment for any leaguestuff, but I'm in favour of this as well.
I will be resigning Felton and Kirilenko. Koufos will become a free agent.
ill re-sign shannon brown and amir johnson
Oh shit, i'm the number 2 pick, that's dope
I guess now that we know who is going where, we could start posting our picks? Or, should we wait a couple days for the dust to settle (and more trades to potentially happen). I'm going to have to reassess who I'm extending this year as Greiveis Vasquez just got a whole lot less appealing....
I disagree with the second part, about making it as real as possible. We have no influence on what the teams do with their roster untill shortly before the start of the season, so we can't make this resembling reality at all. It just adds more unknowns and thus luck. Just like with other leagues, drafting shortly before the seasons helps the people who make the best analysis of team situations. That means more cunning is involved an I'm always in favour of that. We won't start signing free agents now either.
A personal interest of mine here is that I'm in no way capable, due to job/family situation to invest a lot of time now and do it again right before the season. My analysis of the rookies and their situations won't be happening untill maybe a month before the season. Right now, I don't even know what position most of the guys drafted play, let alone anything of use for drafting.
I'm in indifferent. I'm about to drive across the country and then go on vacation for a week so, like Soft Euro, I have a personal interest in doing it later.
If not for my personal circumstances, however, I'd say do it now.
I would prefer to see draft for rookies done sooner than later.
Latest would be before summer league starts - July 12.
Adding to my earlier reason why it's a bad idea: we haven't yet confirmed participants and we haven't gotten replacement players for Apollo and I think at least one more player. It short days as well; for me it's totally unpossible to get a good idea of the rookies.
I am fine to make my selection as soon as you guys want. I am fairly busy at the moment, so I'll try and check back frequently to see when we want to start our draft, but I know who I have in mind.
I'm fine to make my selection now as well. Also, can someone e-mail me my yahoo ID/e-mail address? I seemed to have forgot it and can't login at the moment. Would be able to with ID though.
I prefer to draft just before the season.
Keep Calm & Chive On
Just throwing it out there but here goes....
Draft in late September
free agency in early October.
Gives lots of time for dust to settle with "real" off season transactions and to find new owners.
