It was an interesting day two, one that saw the new collective bargaining agreement draft rules play a key role in how teams went about their respective selections. Money had always played a vital function in the draft -- and always will -- but the new CBA has clearly escalated the function to new levels.
That being said, many teams did find quality value between rounds three and 10 today, with several players who were rumored to go in the first or second round falling into the laps of their respective clubs. Whether or not the teams will be able to sign said picks is another question, but the process of selecting the best playNational ers available in the draft is never a bad thing.
