Well we can start tomorrow after 9 am
Hopefully we can get 1 more individual to come in for the last two teams. If not I'll just use the highest ranked NBA draft Net ranked player for those two teams if no one steps up. We only need ONE more person!
You get roughly 2 hours to make a pick but obviously you can pick much faster than that. The clock stops at 11 pm ( although if you're up and want to make your pick go for it) and restates at 9 am u til all picks are done

With the 1st pick of the 2018 NBA Draft the Phoenix Suns select....

DeAndre Ayton from Arizona...


And as you can see the boy has game!!!

13 - DeAndre Ayton

Arizona

Birthday: 7/23/98
NBA Position: Center
Class: Freshman
Ht: 7-0
Wt: 260
Hometown: Nassau, Bahamas
High School: Hillcrest
Team Site Profile
Statistics
NBA Comparison: Shawn Kemp/David Robinson

Strengths: Tremendous physical profile (7’1”, 250 pounds) ... Fits the profile of a physical freak and a "Generational center" ... Figures to be among if not the top center in the league in his prime ... Already has an NBA ready body, and a physique ideally designed for the game of basketball ... Moves exceptionally well for his size ... Runs the floor well and really excels in the transition ... Plays physical, showing a willingness to bang and seek out contact ... He’s capable of reliably hitting open jumpers, even developing a three-point game (34.3% on 1 attempt per game) ... Has very good hands ... Has good form on his shot, shooting 73.3% from the foul line ... Knows how to score in a variety of ways: Around the rim, mid-range, and beyond (20.1 points per game) ... Developing solid post moves and has exceptional footwork ... Good in both pick and roll and pick and pop situations ... While able to dunk in traffic with ease, he isn't overly reliant on his physical gifts to score ... Does a good job controlling the glass and the paint, averaging 11.6 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game ... Very active on the offensive glass, good at getting tip-ins and put backs ... Has a really quick second jump and follows his own misses really well ... Does a good job defending without fouling (2.3 fouls per game) ... Seems to be NBA ready from a mental standpoint ... Was comfortable handling the work load night in and night out at Arizona ... Pretty consistent player, giving good energy every minute he's on the floor ... Rarely had an off night. Made a huge impact in college from day one ... Already looked like he could hang with NBA players the moment he stepped on the floor at in Tucson ... Fits today's NBA extremely well with his ability to knock down outside shots ... Scored a majority of his points in the post, generally outclassing opponents with ease, with his huge size/talent differential. But has developing skills to operate both on the block and facing the basket. Has a lot of natural ability and his post game can advance tremendously if he's given the proper instruction ...

Weaknesses: Defensive awareness needs to improve. For a player with such elite physical gifts, his shot blocking ability is curiously average (though he seemed to improve as freshman season progressed). He should be able to improve upon this over time, given the proper coaching and desire ... Needs to do a better job guarding against the pick and roll. Can sometimes lose his man ... Needs to do better as a help defender ... Can get flat footed at times ... And seemed to look to preserve energy (and fouls) on the defensive end ... While capable of scoring at all three levels, jumper (inparticular shot selection) still needs improvement ... Tends to shoot it a bit short and at times can rush his shot ... Needs to follow through and also look to improve his touch around the basket ... Needs to do a better job of commanding the ball inside and establishing position. He's so big and strong that he will be very difficult to stop from extablishing position at the next level once his strength peaks out and he fully understands utilizing position and getting low ... Sometimes is a bit passive and can be lazy at times, though he played with a solid level of energy for the most part throughout his college career ... Needs to do a better job contesting shots on the perimeter ... Needs to do a better job scoring in traffic ... If crowded, you can bother him and force him to take a difficult shot or turn the ball over ... Will need to improve ability to handle double teams ...


This to me a no-brainer for Phoenix. Everybody needs a Center and PG to be successful. They already have Devin Booker and Ayton will complete the foundation.

Sacramento Kings(meloshouldgo) you are on the clock!

The cleveland cavaliers are VERY pleased to announce their selection of . . . . . TRAE YOUNG (sorry briggs).

11 - Trae Young

Oklahoma

• Birthday: 9/19/98

• NBA Position: Point Guard

• Class: Freshman

• Ht: 6-2

• Wt: 180

• Hometown: Norman, OK

• High School: Norman North

NBA Comparison: Stephen Curry/Mike Bibby

Strengths: Trae Young early on in his freshman season is doing things that college basketball fans rarely see ... Through Oklahoma’s first ten games, he averaged nearly 30 points and nine assists per game, which is unheard of for any player let alone a freshman ... Young has also yet to score fewer than 22 points since the season opener ... Young is just the fourth high-major freshman guard in seven years to record a usage rate higher than 30 percent ... Two of those players, [Player: D’Angelo Russell] and Markelle Fultz, were top-two draft picks ... The first thing that jumps out about Young is his seemingly limitless shooting range ... Young is a threat to score from anywhere on the court once he crosses half court and can effortlessly knock down shots beyond the NBA three-point line ... He may be the best shooter in college basketball since Stephen Curry played at Davidson ... What separates Young from other great shooters is that, like Curry, he has the ability to knock down shots from distance off a variety of dribble moves and not just off the catch or off of simple one-dribble pull ups ... He has a quick, compact release with minimal wasted motion that allows him to get his shot off even in tight space ... Young’s jumper unlocks numerous other options offensively for him ... Although he is not the most explosive athlete, the threat of his jumper forces defenders to guard him way out on the perimeter, making it easier for him to get by his man and into the paint ... Young has shown the ability to create his own shot from inside the arc with a solid handle ... He has a great floater from the mid range area as well that he can score with consistently when he is not able to get all the way to the rim ... Young’s ability to operate out of the pick and roll is very advanced for a player of his age ... He makes great decisions and quick reads off of ball screens and is always under control ... Young always plays with his head up in these situations and shows great vision in the half court and in transition ... He puts his passes on target and in spots on the court where his teammates are comfortable playing ... He also does a nice job of not forcing passes and making the simple play when nothing extra is needed ... In transition, Young does an excellent job of leading the break and is dangerous due to his combination of vision and craftiness around the rim ... When he goes to the basket, he is adept at using his body to shield himself from bigger defenders and finish through contact ... He can score with both hands or dish it to open teammates to lead to an easy basket.

Weaknesses: Young does not have ideal size at 6-2 or length with just a 6-2 wingspan for an NBA guard ... These physical limitations can become apparent once he gets all the way to the rim ... He lacks the length and vertical explosiveness to finish through NBA length and athleticism and does not project as an efficient scorer at the basket in the NBA ... He will have to rely much more on craft to be successful inside at the next level ... He has been a bit turnover prone at times this season due to his tendency to make some risky passes at times ... However, much of that is due to his unusually high usage rate, and he still has an assist to turnover ratio of better than two to one ... Young’s shot selection at times leaves a lot to be desired ... As good of a shooter as he is, there are times where he will hoist a very long jumper early in the shot clock without moving the ball and looking for a better opportunity first ... As polished as Young is offensively, he is a near liability on defense ... He rarely gets into a stance on this end of the floor and shows poor effort guarding the ball ... Opposing guards are easily able to get into the lane against him and he is often caught ball-watching when his man does not have the ball ... Due to his lack of ideal size and athleticism, he will be a guy for opposing offenses to attack ... He is not explosive enough to stay in front of quick guards, and he is also not big enough to stop anyone else on the court ... The effort has to improve first and foremost, but even if it does he may never be a reliable defensive player unless he can create a high number of steals ... Will need to add strengh to be able to better finish off drives and also defend ...

oh stop . . .

lebron stays, this guy's gonna add a dynamic quality that they lack without kyrie. He bolts, it's a whole new game and a whole new engine to drive their machine...let clarkson, nance and hood run the floor with him.

This might be insanely controversial but Ive fallen in love with the player. I just love the shooting size and overall IQ. And maybe Briggs of last year and beyond would've taken Wendall Carter every day all day---Im taking
