my name is Toni, im from Croatia and need your help. Im playing with idea, what if there were Expansion draft and i need your help.
If you were GM of Mavs, who would you protect and who would you expose?
Each team can protect up to 8 players from its active, injured and suspended lists as of the last day of the season; provided that each current team must leave at least one player unprotected.
Unrestricted free agents will not be eligible to be selected in the Expansion Draft. Restricted free agents are eligible to be selected.
If a restricted free agent is selected by the NBA expansion team in the expansion draft, that player will become an unrestricted free agent, eligible to be signed by any team (including the expansion team) other than his prior team.
And list od players for expansion draft are (UFAs are erased from list):
4 Kelenna Azubuike SF 28 6-5 215 Kentucky $280,192
3 Rodrigue Beaubois G 24 6-2 185 $1,236,720
25 Vince Carter SG 35 6-6 220 North Carolina $3,000,000
33 Brendan Haywood C 32 7-0 263 North Carolina $7,624,500
20 Dominique Jones SG 23 6-5 215 South Florida $1,193,280
0 Shawn Marion SF 34 6-7 228 UNLV $8,022,449
41 Dirk Nowitzki PF 34 7-0 245 $19,092,873
7 Lamar Odom PF 32 6-10 230 Rhode Island $8,900,000
34 Brandan Wright PF 24 6-10 210 North Carolina $915,852
