Now, you can't do that unless you have 30 team control and it's a lot of work. Also I would like for picks to be lottery protected. It could really be a lot more realistic. Also, in the headlines I would like some more rookie info, so you can prepare for the next year's draft.
the best way to do that is to turn on trade override. trade away a meaningless 2nd round pick for the pick your team has IRL.
for instance, if you started a season with OKC and wanted Toronto's pick all you have to do is turn trade override on, propose a trade of your 2nd round pick of their first and force them to accept the trade.
Keeping the picks lottery protected is a different story..
