    So this new team in Seattle has an expansion draft.

    My selections would go like this.

    1. Wilson Chandler
    2. Danny Green
    3. Maureese Speights
    4. Jared Bayless
    5. Derrick Williams
    6. Timofey Mosgov
    7. Vince Carter
    8. Carl Landry
    9. Corey Brewer
    10. Luke Ridnour
    11. Alec Burk
    12. Haseem Thabeet
    13. Perry Jones
    14. CJ Watson
    15. Andris Biendrins



    Team would look like

    PG - Ridnour/Watson/Bayless
    SG - Green/Carter/Burk
    SF - Chandler/Brewer/Jones
    PF - Landry/Williams/Speights
    C - Mosgov/Thabeet/Biendrins

    If you're cutting Blatche from the Nets you'd have to pick him up surely? He's better than most of the players on this team currently.

    I'd go something like

    Ridnour/Telfair/Neal
    Green/J-Rich/Carter
    Henderson/Chandler/Carter
    Blatche/Landry
    Mosgov/Thabeet

    Billups, Derrick Williams, Toney Douglas fringe players.

    Blatche would be a pretty good pick up, he's 7 feet tall with range and can rebound.

    I'm reading all kind of tweets that the Kings were sold and the Sonics are returning to Seattle maybe next season. While this is great news for Seattle and terrible for Sacramento, are they allow to rename the team "Supersonics" or OKC still owns the name and history?

    OKC said it's okay for Seattle to take the name, even though OKC has rights to the name I believe.
