Christmas is over, it's time to slow down and start to relax and waste hours on the computer again!

The game is simple. Pick an NBA team you would like to represent. Disgression on whether or not you will get that team will be left up to me. I don't plan on being strict, but I know certain posters who really want their team, so I'm going to be mindful of that mostly.

I don't care if you're a newbie. Just as long as you can let us know if you have enough time and interest.

I'll pass trades. If you want to help volunteer as a trade commish, PM me and let me know. Trades should pass the ESPN Trade Machine before being sent to me for approval.

We'll do this in 3 phases.

1st phase - Regular season to end of year. Open trade period. You can do up to 2 trades. However, you can only do 1 trade that includes:

Player(s) for player(s)
Player(s) for picks
Picks for picks

You can have an additional trade if it involves using an exemption. This may include your Mid-level Exemption (MLE - $6M) or Lower-level Exemption (LLE -$2M) or Traded-player Exemption (TPE - amount varies) that you may have. Those values are rough estimates that we will use for this game. If you include trades using your MLE, LLE or TPE, then the trade doesn't have to pass the ESPN trade machine. However, you cannot include any players in trades that include using the exemption.

Once this period is over, expiring contracts are then FAs. You cannot trade those players.

2nd phase - The Draft. You can do 1 trade. Player for picks, or picks for picks, it doesn't matter. There will be no players only trades. We will only do 1 round.

The draft order is being set by ESPN's Mark Stein's power rankings as of today.

Lottery: I will be announcing a lottery prior to the start of the draft.

3rd phase - Free Agency. There will be no trades during this time. There will be 3 signing waves of announcements. You will need to submit to me the following:

Your team name:
Number of FAs you have signed so far:
Player's name:
Contract (years/money):
Reason he would sign with you:

I will not be taking a team, fyi. Besides, the Magic are perfect as is. ;)

Draft Order/Owner List:

3. Wizards - Zycho

I would be willing to co-GM the Wolves, or I guess any other team. But preferably the Wolves. And as of today, the Wolves have the second worse record, why are we getting the fifth pick? Are you just assuming we get screwed in the lottery again? If so, then that makes sense and I accept our fate.

EDIT - Saw the Power Rankings. Nevermind.

Yeah, that's the time to do it. I've updated the original post to reflect that that is the regular season to end of year.

Once that period is over, expiring contracts are then FAs. You cannot trade those players.

Yeah, the timing is bad. I thought it might be ok with the kiddies out of school, but some of us adults have priorities. We'll take is slow. We still have 3 teams left to fill. After New Year's, I think we'll be rolling.

Bulls, Mavs, Kings... still available.

BTW, I'm not announcing trades until we have complete ownership filled first.

WMD is the other trade commish.

12-30-2010, 06:37 PM
You can do up to 2 trades. However, you can only do 1 trade that includes:

Player(s) for player(s)
Player(s) for picks
Picks for picks
This kinda confuses me. Explain further plz.

scottyboy
12-30-2010, 06:46 PM
yea I've already made a trade. D, for sakes of doing other talks, can you just say if my deal is approved?

Pretty much everyone on the Raps is available, will be tough to get Bargnani though. Have some solid pieces for contenders like Reggie Evans, Barbosa and Peja's expiring

Top 6th man Jamal Crawford and his expiring is on the block as well as either Horford or Smoove for the right price if I can get a true Center and a SF or PG.

Everyone on the Hornets is on the trade block except Chris Paul. I just don't see any realistic trade scenario where he is dealt.

why reject Mayo and allow Roy to be traded for nothing

scottyboy
01-01-2011, 09:27 PM
yea, what the ****? that's garbage.
I don't care much for a trade committee to begin with, if a deal is agreed upon it should be done...but oh well I guess...

senormysterioso
01-01-2011, 09:34 PM
That seems like a generally fair deal to me too. I'm not sure what the logic behind rejecting it is. O.J. has had a pretty bad year, a lottery pick + a player seems more or less fair.


Also, just taking on the five years left on Roy's contract is assuming a huge risk. A massive expiring contract and a pick is a more than fair price. It's a gamble, but it's a high risk/high reward proposition with getting Roy and Oden.

scottyboy
01-01-2011, 09:42 PM
OJ's on a down year, riding pine for Memphis. Mayo needs a change of scenary, Morrow's a good young player plus a pick

Brodeur
01-01-2011, 09:42 PM
I think the logic is the fact that I have a better pick and would be willing to offer more. HOW ABOUT THAT?

senormysterioso
01-01-2011, 10:06 PM
Well, it looks like the Bucks mock is pretty much done. I feel good about my two moves. Like I said, the Roy/Oden deal was risky, but I believe that they still have some basketball left in their garbage knees.

I was going to keep Gooden, but I decided that I'd rather give those minutes to the combination of Larry Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova, and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (assuming I'm able to resign him). Ridnour was outstanding in Skiles' system, so I wanted him back as a backup to Jennings, I still have a half chub left from the boner I had for Brewer coming out of Florida, so that's why I picked him up.

Brandon Jennings with Brandon Roy and Corey Maggette on the wings and Bogut down low would be fun to watch...but the whole thing could very easily be blown apart by injuries.

01-01-2011, 10:36 PM

Rockets either trying to rebuild or trade in a few pieces for a upgrade at C/SF

young talent like Lowry, Lee, Budinger, Williams, Hill, Patterson can be had as well as large expiring contracts in Yao, Jefferies and Battier

Michigan
01-02-2011, 08:39 AM
I'm glad that I was able to unload Roy and his daunting contract. Even though Roy's trade value was just base year compensation, the rebuilding process needs to start sooner rather than later and getting Redd's $18M contract is gonna really help towards that end.

WMD said Mayo should command more in a trade.
No no you said that!

I thought Brandon Roy could get more. But it was passable, considering Roy's injury and big contract..

I just think OJ Mayo is one of the more talented young SG's in the league with some good potential.. I'd say he's worth more than a 3 point shooting role player and a late lottery pick. And if Memphis were to trade Mayo, I don't think they would want a SG as the main piece in return, considering they've pretty much got a logjam there already.

But that's the problem with having to approve and deny trades..I'm all for letting people do what they want with their teams,. but if we're trying to keep some form of realism, we have to try to keep things as even as possible, I guess.

I told you this...

"I don't know about this one. Thoughts?"

This is what you said...

"Uhh.. I think OJ Mayo should get more in a trade.

The first two trades are good I suppose. I would've expected Brandon Roy to get more in a trade but he's pretty banged up now.. so I guess it's fine."

Tyrus Thomas
Gerald Henderson
DeSagana Diop

Mavericks send:

Caron Butler
Deshawn Stevenson
JJ Barea
Jason Terry
Rodrigue Beaubois
30th pick

01-03-2011, 09:49 PM
I'll abstain from voting, because it's my trade...but I am going to post my logic. The Mavericks are win now, and the Bobcats want to rebuild. They get a bunch of expiring contracts, a pick, and a couple of useful guards. This trade would give the Mavericks a great starting five with incredible size with Kidd-Jackson-Wallace-Nowitzki-Chandler. Add Tyrus, Marion, Diop, and Heywood off the bench, it's pretty formidable. I know it's a lot of players, but it makes a ton of sense for both teams.

Basically my reasoning, Suns only true PF are Warrick and Lawal who aren't playing at all for what ever reason, with 3, 7 footers rotating in at the position and struggling offensively. love Fropez and I would hate to ever actually part with him but West is a good offensive big man who can be used in the pick n pop on offense and with Gortat behind him on D it limits his deficiencies

ok, since there's NOW no trade commish, what more would the Nets need to offer to make the Mayo deal go through?

01-04-2011, 09:15 AM
I've never been a fan of West, but a lot of people are. I guess I'm ok with the trade. An interior presence in Pheonix would be good. I'll vote yes.

Scotty, the easy thing would be to add another pick I'd say. Maybe take on a few more contracts and add in Murphy's expiring deal.

scottyboy
01-04-2011, 09:20 AM
well if we keep the deal as is, and I throw in another 1st rounder, would you guys be cool with it?

I would indeed. I'm just saying, the other party agreed to the original deal, but if it's so outrageous I'll sweeten the deal with another 1st rounder and it'd be all fine.
Mayo would also be a RFA after NEXT year, so it'd be AT WORST a 2 year "rental" and that's if I didn't re-sign him...

This one doesn't make much sense to me from the Clippers standpoint. Why would they take on two big contracts at this point? I know they would love to get rid of Baron, but not enough to take on two bad contracts and give up a future first. Is Bledsoe ready to play big time minutes at the point? Is Aminu ready to take the next step? And where do you fit Charlie V into the fold? The Clips have a bunch of young versatile stretch fours...how do you work Vilanueva into that?

I'm leaning no on this one, pending an explanation from the Clippers.

Brodeur

Rip and Charlie's contracts are identical in years and money to Gomes and Davis' contracts.

Ok, but why would you want to add to a relatively deep front court while leaving yourself thin at guard and give up a future first?

Brodeur
01-04-2011, 09:50 PM
The future first was because I don't give a **** about future first rounders, and I just wanted to get rid of Baron Davis. I figure I'll offer for my first rounder for a PG, and if I get nothing, I'll draft one.

What are you talking about??? Who did you trade the 30th pick and the TE to? What does the Hawks/Warriors have to do with you? You're the GM of the Mavs and Bucks.

*rolls eyes* Yeah, you can't be involved in anymore player for player trades. You already got away with the most unrealistic trade in this mock so far. Just because you're not a Mavs fan doesn't mean you can just flip that team upside down as many times as you want.
