With the NBA Draft happening in just a few weeks, mocks are starting to fill the internet. There are mocks based on insider info, on need, talent, and production vs potential.
It's an exiting time to be a basketball fan, even on the days where there aren't any games.
With trading being such an important part of building a championship team, as well as drafting correctly, I decided it would be fun to put together a mock, where over the course of the first round, every team would be involved in a trade.
These trades would work according to the ESPN trade machine, but they also had to have a reasonable basis. The question "would this actually happen?" needed to be able to be answered with a logical and reasonable argument for why a GM would do this trade.
PS: The "It's Mike Dunleavy, he'd do anything" doesn't count.
Feel free to post your own trade ideas in the comments.
