This is the official announcement for the Blazersedge 2009 Mock Draft. It will be held on Tuesday, June 23rd. We're signing up people to be General Managers. You'll be able to work trades (within reason), make picks, and otherwise control your team and its destiny.
You must be a registered member to participate. You must also be available on the 23rd. Participants will be notified on Thursday and will receive full instructions and rules then.
Participants will be selected based on their answer to this question:
The Dallas Mavericks call you and offer Josh Howard and Jose Juan Barea for a package of Rudy Fernandez, Martell Webster, and Steve Blake. Do you make that deal? Why or why not?
The most compelling 29 answers will earn their authors GM-ships. One answer per person please. Comment away!
P.S. "Compelling" does not necessarily equal "long". Have some mercy.
