the Rules of the Draft are simple- once a pick is made- you must release a player - so it goes (for example)
The Mavs pick Jason Kidd- and release Diop
- So now not only are the players from other teams avail- so are the released players- so later on (much later I'm sure) you may have a team stop picking- as there is no other player better out there (I'm guessing the suns might get to round 4) But you can also have the Heat looking for a C and picking Diop up.
So if you want a team- signup below
then once all the spots are taken- we will have a draft- come with your 12 player roster- and we will draft out. ( we will not do this all at once we will spread it over a couple of days.
