Elite players announced for 2019 Hon Fraser League Draft

How the Draft works

A raffle pick will determine which team gets which number picked in the draft. Only drafted players can be traded; however, trading of players is up to the League Committee.

Teams with the lowest record/score in the 2017-2018, Hon Julian Fraser Save the Seed League will get numbers 1, 2, and 3 in order to have first preference to pick in the draft system as a display of fairness.

Participating in the draft system is not compulsory; however, it is highly recommended so that each team is allowed a fair and equal opportunity in the League.

Elite players for the draft system should be well-disciplined, and cannot be suspended from any other local basketball league.
