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 Hawks, 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):
15 Al Horford C 26 6-10 250 Florida $12,498,483
44 Ivan Johnson F 28 6-8 255 San Bernardino $473,604 (RFA)
2 Joe Johnson SG 30 6-7 240 Arkansas $18,038,573
27 Zaza Pachulia C 28 6-11 275 $4,750,000
5 Josh Smith PF 26 6-9 225 $12,400,000
0 Jeff Teague PG 24 6-2 181 Wake Forest $1,579,920
24 Marvin Williams SF 26 6-9 245 North Carolina $7,500,000
Who would be on your protected list and what you think, who would be best pick for expansion team?
Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad English
