2019 NYKFP Mock free agency competition

Postby spree#8 » June 18, 2019, 4:33 pm

Ok guys, with this summer being one of THE most anticipated in years, I think it could be fun if we do a Mock competition like we did in the first summer of LeBron.

Let's talk free agency and make our guesses, who ends up where, known among our fellow NYKFPagers.

My idea is to split the top 20-25 free agents (that hit the market - so if a player takes up an option, he is out, while a player that opts out but resigns qualifies) in three tiers and give 1-3 points for every correct pick, with 3 points given in tier 1, 2 in 2 and 1 in 3. What do you think?

Currently I think the tiers could look like this:

Tier 1
Leonard
Durant
Thompson
Irving
Butler
Walker

Tier 2
Harris
Middleton
Horford
Millsap
Cousins
Vucevic
Randle
Porzingis (restricted)
Brogdon (restricted)
Russell (restricted)

Tier 3
Rozier (restricted)
Bogdanovic
Valanciunas
Jordan
Redick
Barnes
Lamb
Portis (restricted)

I saved one spot of 25 for M. Gasol (I would say tier 2) in case he opts out. Feel free to suggest other free agents I might have missed (what about the Morris twins for example).

Making that pick should be an automatic disqualification.

:D
Yeah, I thought about leaving Porzingis out. Might be an option anyway, because he is the least likely to move teams again. I would say with the 30th still a few days away, let's collect suggestions...

I was also thinking about trimming down the list, but this way I think it could entertain us for some weeks...

Just shoot your suggestions in here.

Because free agency starts June 30th this year, I would say the deadline is June 29th.

It will take a lot of convincing to get me excited about Randle and Rozier.
