A tradition unlike any other returns to GBB this week, and continues all the way up to NBA Draft week!
Over the years, the GBB Community Mock Draft has been a great opportunity for GBB writers and readers to mingle and interact over something we all share/love - the Grizzlies and the NBA. While the Memphis Grizzlies have been taken (by me...sorry, Site Manager has its perks) there are plenty of other squads available for fans to represent.
Some ground rules...the first one is a doozy.
- THERE WILL BE TRADES ALLOWED IN THIS MOCK DRAFT. I will almost certainly regret allowing this.
- These trades must meet NBA CBA regulations regarding picks being moved/player salaries matching according to the 2017-2018 salary cap. I will not clear a trade that would have to wait until after July 1st, for example.
- Since this exercise can get out of hand rather quickly, I reserve the right to reject possible trades. If I am involved in a trade, I will send the deal out to an independent group of folks not involved in the mock to decide if it is a “fair trade”. if two folks say it isn’t, it will not be processed.
- Picks can be made at any time, as can trades, once the draft is officially open. There will be due dates that correspond with when the post for the pick must be written. All that information will be passed along once we are full draft wise.
- You get ONE team. ONE. Do NOT pick more than one team. You claim your squad and spot in the mock draft in the comments of this post- NOWHERE ELSE. This is so we reward those who are members of the GBB Community - i.e. actual SB Nation/GBB members.
- The posts for the draft will end at pick #32 - the final selection of the Grizzlies. Beyond that, we will continue the draft through the entire 2nd round.
- If you are late with a pick, I will make it with the top available player on DraftExpress’ top-100 players.
Thanks to tankathon.com for being a tremendous resource for this type of activity.
The draft will begin Friday with Phoenix and Sacramento’s selections. Get excited for the 2018 GBB Community Mock NBA Draft!
