1.You get 1 first rounder this year 6th-30th and a 2nd round pick this year
2.You may have only 2 guys under the rookie contract and no rules against it but see if you can not take the easy way out and take Durant and Curry or Evans
3.Luxary tax is around 65 million so that is the cap about.
4.Everybody is a free agent so you can pick anybody up.
5.Must have at least 12 players.
If you can try and make a team that would have chemistry and make sense
Draft with the 6th pick Greg Monroe-about 3 million
Draft with 2nd round Willie Warren about 800,000
Rookie Contract Brook Lopez-3 million I think
Rookie Contract Kevin Love-4 million or so
Kobe Bryant-Surpise i picked him i know 24 million
Lamar Odom-8 million about
This team is actually under 65 million by a mil or so.
Coach Marc Jackson offensive coach Jeff Van Gundy defensive coach. They are really good friends so I think they would like to work together.
The team I would have it be a running team when Livingston is in, not as much as the Suns but def a running team and a Hubie Brown team were the starters play 30-32 mins instead of 38. Use all members of bench.
C.Brook Lopez-32 mins 17 points 8 boards 2 blocks
PF.Kevin Love-32 mins 16 points 10-12 boards 4 dimes (rebounding machine)
SF.Gerald Wallace-30 minutes 16 points 7 boards 2 steals 1 block
SG.Kobe Bryant-28-30 Mins to save him for playoffs. 22-24 points 5 5
PG.Shawn Livingston-32 mins 10 points 9
C.Greg Monroe-28-32 mins 14 7 and 1.5 blocks 3 dimes
PF.Odom-32 minutes cause I play him at all 5 positions
PF/SF/SG.CDR-26 minutes a game 14 points will play 4 positions
PF.Josh Powell-Total emergency player not reg rotation
SF/SG Rodney Carney 20 mins 8 points
SG/PG.Willie Warren 15 mins 7 points 2 assists
PG.Mustafa Skukur-20 mins 10 points 2 assists
SG/PG/SF.Raja Bell-20 mins at least at 3 positions D specialist 8 points
I followed the paramaters. I didn't get any superstar under rookie contracts but did get 2 arguble future allstars. Got the best player in the game plus an allstar sf and a bunch of very cheap but quality role players that would fit imo. I think Greg Monroe will be the third best player drafted (unless Cousins isn't a headcase) and Willie Warren is a steal imo. Livingston is back and doesn't need to be very fast and athletic to be a good pg with his feel for the game and incredible passing but he still seems pretty quick and explosive this year. Big risk big reward.
I believe this team would win a championship with a big 4 the clutchest player in the game and with Greg and Odom on the bench one of the best benches to.
They would be a running team and the D isn't great but 2 all nba first defenders in Gerald and Kobe plus Bell and JVG is the defensive coach and with Brook clogging the middle and when he is out Monroe is there plus Love the boarding machine the Defense should be top 10-15.
You may judge mine if you want but make sure you do your own. It's fun and it makes you think like a gm. If you need to know how much a player makes go to hoopshype.com and click on salaries
Can any of you build a championship team (if you can with players you like like i did) staying right below the salary taxand not taking Durant-Evans-Rose although I did take Lopez and Love which are close to stars.
So go ahead.
