    I'm most likely going to end up going the auto-pick route because of my weekend schedule, so anytime that works for the majority is fine with me.

    I'll join, the main reason I haven't signed up is because I probably have to autopick but I'll try to beat your asses by free agency and trades.

    Where do I sign up?

    Great - looks like we are finally set. Would have been a shame to see this tradition die.

    I think that several people will end up autopicking just because we are all over the world and impossible to find time that fits everyone.

    It's not the worst thing in the world. I'll just make sure I have my rankings set.

    We may be up to 11 teams and need another team for draft. Looks like people are getting signed up throughout

    League has been finalized and draft order has been randomly generated.

    Since we only have 10 teams I have expanded the rosters to make it more fun. The positions are as follows: PG, SG, G, G, SF, PF, F, F, C, C, Util, Util, BN, BN, BN, BN.

    I'm not against expanding the rosters but isn't the fun part of being fewer than usual that the FA pool is deeper so everything isn't decided on draft day?

    Can you post the draft order it's come up with on here? Can't find it on the site. Also, I agree with Mogilny on roster size actually especially with so many likely to be autopicking.

    How did it go last night then? Many auto pickers? I'm reasonably happy with my auto-picked roster.. will be making a few tweaks of course.

    About two minutes ago I REJECTED a trade that would send Deron Williams to the Urban Achievers.
    I did this on my iPhone and for some reason, it indicates that there is a PENDING trade. (! :bs: )

    I do NOT want to make this deal.
    Deron is a big part of our team and we DON'T want to trade him.

    I'd like to ask the commish to make sure that this trade is voided.

    ...thanks in advance.

    Hey BDL,

    That is bizarre. I never received an acceptance for that trade. Anyways, I clicked on the "vote against" button on my portal and it looks like that cancelled the trade. Commish, please verify.

    If for some bizarre reason the trade goes through, I'll immediately trade him back. Don't want to create any problems here.
