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 Pistons, 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):
12 Will Bynum PG 29 6-0 185 Georgia Tech $3,250,000
5 Austin Daye SF 24 6-11 200 Gonzaga $1,929,600
8 Ben Gordon SG 29 6-3 200 Connecticut $11,600,000
33 Jonas Jerebko F 25 6-10 231 $4,500,000
7 Brandon Knight PG 20 6-3 189 Kentucky $2,563,320
20 Vernon Macklin F 25 6-10 227 Florida $473,604
10 Greg Monroe C 22 6-11 250 Georgetown $3,007,920
22 Tayshaun Prince SF 32 6-9 215 Kentucky $6,292,135
23 Walker Russell G 29 6-0 170 Jacksonville State $374,300
3 Rodney Stuckey PG 26 6-5 205 Eastern Washington $8,500,000
31 Charlie Villanueva PF 27 6-11 232 Connecticut $7,540,000
