View Full Version : DBR NBA Mock Draft!! Sign up here!!

This is the official sign-up thread for the DBR Mock draft. The draft itself will take place starting the middle of next week, but you should sign up now if you want to be a GM.

Here are the rules.

Whoever posts first in this thread saying they want to GM a certain team-- they are the GM. GM duties do not entitle you to make trades, we are only going to make draft picks.

Every GM is expected to make his picks in a timely fashion. Please do not make us wait 5 or 6 hours for you to make a pick or we will never get through the entire draft. It would be nice if we could pick the entire first and second rounds before the NBA does the real thing in 15 days.

Once you make a pick, you are expected to explain your choice and be ready for criticism.

That's about it. If I think of more that needs to be added, I will post it in this thread. Again, the way to sign up to make a team's picks is to post it into this thread.

Now, go for it!!!

2 picks in the first round and several pieces up for trade, I'll take the Pistons.

Nazr Mohammed is definitely on the block, reasonable contract (6 mil?) and a post presence, but lousy hands. Was brought in to hold off Shaq, but Shaq isn't relavent in the East any more. Teams like Atlanta and Washington that have no post preence should be interested.

Also willing to offer Chauncey Billups and Rip Hamilton for Kobe (you can't spell "team" without "m" "e") Bryant. Will then try to package the 2 1st rounders to move up to get Mike Conley Jr or Acie Law IV.

I like Rasheed, but it seems that he has become complacent in Motown and needs a new challenge. The Knicks don't have much to offer, but should be interested.

Word is that the Pistons will pursue Grant real hard, and that Grant is listening. He still has some close ties here.

Let the fun begin!

Just a friendly note of reminder about your main duty. I notice that some of the folks who are GMing teams are people who are fairly new posters to the board. I am thrilled you are chiming in and becoming more active but want to remind everyone that once this process starts, probably on Wednesday next week, all the GMs need to make sure they are checking in fairly often and that they know when it is their turn to make a pick and that they make that pick in a reasonably swift fashion.

Thanks!!!

The right to make the first pick in the draft is still available!! Who wants it. Portland has the busiest draft around with 5 picks.

Odds are it won't be by noon. Some of us are on the West Coast, and while I get to work relatively early, the second pick probably won't be made until about 11:00-11:30 eastern.

Are there going to be any surprises with the second pick? It's almost an "if, then", isn't it? If Oden goes first, Durant goes second (and vice versa)

Tough to say at this juncture - I mean, if Durant happens to go first, maybe I'm happy with a combination of Robert Swift, Johan Petro, and Mouhamed Sene (the team's last 3 first round picks) manning the post next to Wilcox, and what I'd really need is a Jeff Green or Corey Brewer to step into the starting lineup to fill the void of Rashard Lewis' impending departure. Of course, if Oden goes #1, maybe I think resigning Lewis is a better solution than drafting Durant, and what I really need is an interior presence like Al Horford to help out Wilcox and Collison because Swift, Petro, and Sene combined don't even make a viable center. Maybe I think Yi Jianlian is the way to get Seattle's Asian-American community involved in a new stadium project, thwarting the owner's attempts to move them to KC or OKC. Or maybe, just maybe, Sam Bowie is available...

Ladies and Gents, our GM roster is now filled. Thanks everyone!!

I am on vacation this week, so posting less frequently, but I will start a "DBR Mock NBA Draft- pick here!" thread some time during the afternoon or evening on Tuesday. Folks can start drafting then. I would hope that when your picks are coming up fairly soon, you would check in frequently to see if it is your turn. Ideally, we should make 8 or so picks per day so no one should take more than an hour or two to make their picks.

If you take longer than 2 hours, there will be some penalty-- I am still deciding how it will work. I am tempted to say you automatically get stuck with Rey Terry and must explain to the masses why you chose a UNC guy who is slotted for the mid-late 2nd round as your first round pick. Hmmm.

Might I suggest that the 2 hour penalty only be enforced between, say, 8AM East Coast and 6PM East Coast? Sorry, but I don't usually get online at home, and I think that might be true for one or two other folks... maybe.

Even if we have to have a shorter period, say 1.5 hours, I would rather do that and do it during normal business hours. After work I am on here much less frequently as well.

Please let me know if anyone is interested with in trading a second first round pick for Randolph!

If it is high enough, there could be a Jarrett Jack involved as well.


Secondly, has anyone seen the trailblazers website? It is crazy! ( http://www.trailblazers.com )

On the roster page they have a silhouette of each player that shows their name when you put the cursor over each player.

Am I right in assuming that we're going to make the picks as the currently stand? I've heard some rumors that the Clips may trade their 14th pick to Phoenix and receive the 24th and 29th in return (with Maggette and Diaw also exchanged). As this trade would likely take place once the Clips are on the clock, it's not anywhere near set in stone. I'll still make the 14th pick for the Clips, right?

The Hawks would JUMP at Kobe for the #3 and #11. Heck, that might actually be a decent situation for Kobe as he and Josh Smith and Joe Johnson would be a run-jump trio unlike any in the league.

But, Kobe wants to go to the Bulls and no where else (except maybe Dallas or Phoenix or San Antonio and the Lakers will not make any of those deals).
