Basketball Out of Position


Basketball Out of Position

I'm absolutely loving basketball -- thanks for adding this game commish!!!!

One question -- what happens if you draft a player at one position, but really like his stats better at another position?

For example, can you use Magic Johnson at Shooting Guard and use his Point guard stats?

Re: Basketball Out of Position

You can.....I have.......did it in the beta......doesn't translate over well is how I felt

Re: Basketball Out of Position

If you draft him at one position he will stay at that position but you can switch his stats to any season. On one of my teams I have Sydney Moncrief using a PG season at SG and it’s been beneficial.

Re: Re: Basketball Out of Position

in the case of Moncrief going from shooting guard to point - would you then have to drop your original point guard and pick up a shooting guard?

Re: Basketball Out of Position

No, he's still your "shooting guard" in the SG position... so if you dropped Moncrief after changing him you could only pick up another SG, and if you dropped your PG you could only pick up another PG.

Re: Basketball Out of Position

Players are locked into whatever position they were drafted as, but all historical career stat lines are fair game.

Re: Re: Basketball Out of Position

thanks to both for the answer - that makes for some interesting draft possibilities - could draft someone like Antetokounmpo at shooting guard and then switch to his PF numbers. Cool good to know

Re: Basketball Out of Position

Most of the players will be displayed to play at the players' primary position. I think there are only a few players that have significant stats that they could be drafted at 2 different positions
