I don't understand the "witness" stuff. Is this like sending UN observers? Have Jimmy Carter witness the drawing?

Who cares. This is just the drawing. Does someone seriously think someone's going to cheat? I'm sure the seller can adequately represent the buyer's interests.

The only rational reason for delaying the lottery drawing is if the participant pool might change because of the addition or subtraction of a team.

Why would a straight move require a delay? The court will be the same size and shape at the new location, won't it. The team can still draft, regardless of their future location.

It strikes me that only a change in the number of teams participating in the draft (plus or minus) would explain the delay.


An ownership change would mean the new owners would want to witness the drawing


Wouldn't that imply that a lottery team is on the move, and ATL shouldn't care to witness.


Yeah ATL seems most suspect to me . Coop giving away 1st Round Pick kind of indicated a Win NOW mentality and that did not happen .

Borders has stated very thoroughly that there would not be any expansion until all 12 teams become profitable i doubt that happened this past season . Move seems more likely than expanding at this point .

Addition wasn't the only possibility I addressed.

I wish someone could give a plausible explanation why a move would necessitate delaying the lottery drawing.

No one seems to want to even countenance the possibility of a team shutting down. Now that would disrupt all the draft arrangements because they'd have to figure out how to integrate the annual draft and the dispersal draft. That I could understand requiring a delay, even if it wasn't one of the lottery teams.

There could've been the threat of a different number of teams, then if they managed to find a new owner it would be avoided.

It would be even more complicated if the team potentially disappearing had already traded their pick. You can't just nice and simply remove them from the draft order if someone already gave up assets for a draft pick that then wouldn't exist. (Note - I have no information that the team being referred to is Atlanta. Talking purely hypothetically)

What would they do?


In 2003, with 14 teams, there were 12 first round picks and 15 in each of the second and third due to trades with folded teams. The picks that came from Miami and Portland remained where where they would have been, while the picks traded to them vanished.

Why am I not surprised you quickly had the answer. Very Happy

Thank you. That makes sense.

At least people on the westcoast get closer to plum. I expect a full blow up of this team , but then again who would not want to go to vegas so who knows. I feel people in vegas are too busy gambling to pay attention to the W. I hope im wrong Embarassed

Personally, I think that's way likelier than Vegas.

Lacob has said...repeatedly, talk to me when our new arena is done...not sure why people are even mentioning Vegas, however it could be a "trial balloon" as a precursor to putting a NBA team there. Weren't the Magoofs interested in Vegas prior to selling the Kings?

Why not Houston, give their new owner a "buy one, get one free" deal?

At least the team isn't folding and someone is interested in buying the Stars. Have to imagine this is why the lottery was ppd.

I'm assuming based on reports it's either Las Vegas or Golden State. Let's hope the league is acting quickly so the Stars can start selling season tickets.

You could also use the lottery as a way to promote your new team.

Heck if the new team goes to Vegas, have the lottery in Vegas. Vegas wins the jack pot, and gets a lot of free local and National publicity.
