my name is Toni, im from Croatia and need your help. Im playing with idea, what if there were Expansion draft and i need your help.
If you were GM of Pacers, who would you protect and who would you expose?
Each team can protect up to 8 players from its active, injured and suspended lists as of the last day of the season; provided that each current team must leave at least one player unprotected.
Unrestricted free agents will not be eligible to be selected in the Expansion Draft. Restricted free agents are eligible to be selected.
If a restricted free agent is selected by the NBA expansion team in the expansion draft, that player will become an unrestricted free agent, eligible to be signed by any team (including the expansion team) other than his prior team.
And list od players for expansion draft are (UFAs are erased from list):
2 Darren Collison PG 24 6-0 160 UCLA $1,455,960
24 Paul George SG 22 6-8 215 Fresno State $2,406,240
33 Danny Granger SF 29 6-8 228 New Mexico $12,015,904
50 Tyler Hansbrough PF 26 6-9 250 North Carolina $2,138,040
55 Roy Hibbert C 25 7-2 260 Georgetown $2,588,590
3 George Hill SG 26 6-2 180 IUPUI $1,540,493
29 Jeff Pendergraph F 25 6-9 240 Arizona State $1,500,000
12 A.J. Price G 25 6-2 185 Connecticut $854,389
6 Lance Stephenson SG 21 6-5 220 Cincinnati $810,000
21 David West PF 31 6-9 240 Xavier $10,000,000
Who would be on your protected list and what you think, who would be best pick for expansion team?
