Or if the #4 drafted player was traded by the Kings after the pick. Again, nevermind, kind of a stupid question.
And we aren't doing the second round right? But say you have a player picked at 30, and he's picked 31 (ie. in the second round). Do you still get the appropriate amount of points for being close? Like let's say you have Patty Mills going to the Cavs at 30, but the Wizards end up picking him at 32. You still get that 1 point, right?
Yeah you still get that point if it goes into the 2nd round. And the points are based off of their actual draft slot. But there's usually a trade or 2 on draft day hours before the draft starts that could change draft position, so you might wanna hold out on sending in your mock as long as possible.
