John Paxson and Gar Forman were in charge of chartering the team plane and hiring 2 pilots. Unfortunately, it turned out about as well as everything else they touched and all 15 Bulls players are lost on some Island somewhere and the NBA has to initiate the NBA Disaster Draft:

Wikipedia

quote:

National Basketball Association
The National Basketball Association (NBA) contingency plan activates if five or more players on a team "die or are dismembered". A special "disaster draft" would be held in which other NBA teams could only protect five players, so that quality sixth men would be available. No more than one player would be drafted from a team.

The team drafted would probably still have to stay under the salary cap: $99,093,000
They can also sign any currently unsigned free agents.

Who does every team protect?
Who do the Bulls take?
Are the Disaster Bulls better than the real ones? (Yes)

Is there an immediate roster freeze, or would Orlando be able to quickly trade Payton in that scenario to avoid losing him for nothing?

If real? I assume there would be a date set that players would have to be protected by. There would probably be a short window teams could do some things.

Much like the new NHL team making trades to NOT pick some players.

Pacers Protect:
Myles Turner
Victor Oladipo
Domantas Sabonis
Darren Collison
TJ Leaf

Thad Young probably has a good chance of being picked up.

the kings would absolutely protect WCS (probably Bogdan, Fox, Hield, Skal & WCS) but we have this slightly used Kosta Koufos you can have instead

EvanTH posted:

Warriors probably go with Durant, Green, Thompson Curry, Iguodala


Pulling those 2 lists from N/V gives us these teams not yet protected:

Atlanta Hawks
Brooklyn Nets
Charlotte Hornets
Cleveland Cavaliers
Memphis Grizzlies
Miami Heat
New Orleans Pels
Portland Trail Blazers
Utah Jazz
Washington Wizards

Cavs:

Lebron
Love
Crowder

JR/TT/Wade (Lebron will pick who he likes best and Gilbert will do whatever he says) I would choose JR.

Probably JR Yeah.
Can leave Wade unprotected, the Bulls wouldn't do that again.

I figure everyone can throw up some team ideas. Starters, go ham and do all 15, whatever.
