I'm wondering how good of a team you could construct with the rules and constraints below. You have the benefit of 20/20 hindsight here. You inherit the Pistons 2004 Championship team, but all of the players quit and their contracts are voided. You have 0 players on your roster and you get the same draft pick positions in each draft that the Pistons got. If they traded a pick or got one from someone else, then you get the same draft pick positions that they ended up with. You have to pay he players that you end up with exactly what they are currently making. For example, if you drafted David Lee in 2005, then he'd be on your current roster at $12.5M, or whatever the Warriors are paying him currently. Your 2011 team has to fit within the salary cap. No lux tax! You can draft undrafted players, as long as they were out of college at the time and are currently in the NBA. Is it possible to have a Championship team with these restrictions? Here is a decent place to find this year's salaries: http://hoopshype.com/salaries.htm Wikipedia is probably the best place to see each year's draft picks. I don't have time to give it a shot now, but it is something that I've been wondering about for a while. What is the upper limit to the drafting performance that Dumars could have had. A good GM probably bats .300+, so this is just for fun.
