One way for Charlotte to build a team will be through an expansion draft. "There will be an expansion draft. Each NBA team gets to protect 8 of their current players, and then Charlotte will then select a player from the list of un-protected players." -Shapecity- So looking at the current rosters of teams in the NBA who would you protect and then if you were the Cats who would you take? For Example. The 8 protected players for the Mavs might be Antawn Jamison Dirk Nowitzki Jiri Welsch Steve Nash Michael Finley Raef LaFrentz Eduardo Najera Travis Best Which would leave: Tariq Abdul-Wahad Raja Bell Shawn Bradley Marquis Daniels Danny Fortson Josh Howard Chris Mills Jon Stefansson Walt Williams If I were the 'cats I'd take Raja Bell. So here are the rules. Name your team, name your 8 protected players, and then who you would take from that team were you the Bobcats' GM. Try not to pick a team that was already used.
