who is this
I'm lost. We're middle of the 9th round right?
Narrowing my pick down right now
Not draft eligible until next year, so I didn't even know he could be drafted.
Really long, tall, athletic, skinny, french big man.
And yes, a free agency period is a must, especially as a means of facilitating trades after the draft.
JHB selects Boris Diaw
RSK from Jaqen H'ghar
Gunners, there is no win fifteen years ago category.
RSK, you up.
Patric Young is from Florida, right? He any good?
Saw another site call him a poor mans Derrick Favors
NBA Comparison: Brandon Bass/Loy Vaught
Strengths: Chiseled power forward with an NBA frame, burly shoulders and relatively untapped physical potential ... High-level athlete with 7'1 wingspan and tremendous vertical lift ... His game is currently marked by POWER and explosive finishing ability ... Outright intimidating presence. Thunderous and copious dunker ... Relentless rebounder with constant motor, believes every miss is his property (7.3 RPG, 1 every 3.5 minutes) ... Snatches boards at their apex, often above rim level ... Possesses the tools and timing to be a dynamic shot blocker (1.7 BPG) ... Good agility for a 245 pounder, runs the court with a high motor and creates a numbers advantage in transition ... Displays the lateral quickness to defend in space ... Has the hands to corral passes amidst congestion, and is a frequent target of alley-oops ... Young is showing improved passing skills as a sophomore, averaging nearly 2 assists per game ... When the defense collapses, he is capable of finding the open man ... A late bloomer, he is still improving. Rare combination of length/muscle + athleticism/motor ...
Weaknesses: Just how far Young can take his athletic prowess remains to be seen ... He's very much a "blank slate" in the basketball sense ... His offensive arsenal remains in the extremely raw stage of development ... While he shows glimpses of footwork in the post, he doesn't yet possess the comfort level to execute a move without thinking ... He needs to be setup in a position to finish, or take matters into his own hands on the offensive glass ... All of his points come directly around the bucket ... Asked to play the 5 spot for Florida, he's not getting a thorough opportunity to cultivate his perimeter skills ... Ability to knock down an open jump shot (59% FT) and ballhandling are currently missing ingredients ... He may never be much of an offensive player as his touch is below average ... Overall, he's passive offensively (7.6 FG ATT) unless he's dunking, seemingly unsure what his game/role is ... Defensively he plays with almost too much energy, often finding himself out of position and taking unnecessary risks e.g. leaving his man under the basket to step out on a non-threat penetrator. Finding a middle ground, under control tempo would suit him well ... Young is obviously no stranger to the weight room as he has completely ripped his body, but he appears to have lost some flexibility and his movements appear stiff while running and making moves with the ball ... Listed at 6'9 but appears to be an inch or so shorter ...
Not bad. Sounds kind of like Faried with more upside.

Idk who this James McAdoo character is. I have James Michael McAdoo.
mpl92 on the clock until 3PM.
Then devine and Spontaneous Cumbustion and we're in the final round.
I say we go to a two hour time limit for the final round.
I say 20 minute limit.
when is this free agency period?
Depends on when the round ends.
so it's not gonna be open season as soon as someone makes the final pick, right?
No, I say we give a period for people to make trade offers and then have an announcement about when it is so everyone can do it.
Then we'll come ITT and you can claim a guy. Once you claim a guy, you have to wait until five or ten (we'll figure it out) teams pick up a guy, then you can make another claim. Whoever posts the name first gets the guy.
Can fill your team up to 12 or 15 (whichever people want to do).

I can fucks with that
devine, check your PMs before you pick.
JHB if you steal his pick and take the person I told you I wanted, I'm giving dumptime your phone number
I'm not sniping your guys.
devine has until 4:46.
He'll ask at 4:00 if it is his turn to pick and then wait to make his pick at 4:45.
He's been on the board throughout the day and he's been tagged here and PM'ed. He's not getting the time limit on his next picks if Spontaneous makes his picks. I say just let him pick when he picks.
Shit hold on
you got one minute before Spontaneous Cumbustion can pick
So what was the final stance on injured players?
god damnit devine
I think if they're out for a few months i.e., Rose/Howard, then assume they are normal. If they're done because of injuries (Roy, Mike Miller, Wade) then you take them in their shitty state
One of these players is not like the other.
you fucking bigot
Great picks. Both of them.
fuck fuck fuck
LEAVE A FUCKING LIST DEVINE. GOD DAMMIT.
You still want to do this? I vote yes.
Yes. Devine has until 7:54.
hey jhb don't announce my pick if it comes up. I'm gonna make sure that's who I want since Drummond and Landry got scooped up. Fuggin twerps
