SLAMonline x Draftstreet Free $250 Fantasy Basketball Challenge

by January 11, 2012

Season-long fantasy leagues are a grind, so has introduced the one-night fantasy basketball league challenge, and is giving away $250 in free prizes exclusively to SLAMonline readers who can build the best team of NBA players based on salary cap restrictions. The one-night contest will go down on Friday night—so here’s your chance to prove to the world you can build a contender. The contest is free to enter, and multiple winners will take home cash, so check out some of the other details and sign up today!

This free contest will be salary-cap style drafting where everyone tries to assemble the best team out of the available players. You will have a $100,000 budget to build a team of 2 forwards, 2 guards, 2 centers, and 2 utility players. Each NBA player has been assigned a price based on their expected fantasy performance—you’ll have to use your GM skills, since you won’t be able to afford an All-Star team. You can adjust your roster up until the contest starts on Friday January 13th at 7:00pm ET at which time your rosters will lock and the Live Scoreboard will be available.

Remember, this freeroll is exclusive to SLAMonline, so not only do your chances of winning go up, but you’ll have the chance to compete against the rest of the SLAM family (maybe even some of our editors and writers), head-to-head. Click here to enter the freeroll!
