The Texas Basketball Auction Draft: Rick Barnes Edition

This year during the NCAA tournament we got into a debate about which individual player would improve this year's Texas team the most. A lot of fans have spent some time putting together fantasy versions of their team.  Here is our guide to the ultimate Texas fantasy basketball auction.

Ground rules
  • You have to draft a starting 5, one player at each position. 
  • Each player has to have played at least one season for Rick Barnes. 
  • You are drafting their best year at Texas, not what they have done in the NBA, and not their full time at Texas (this is not a career achievement award).  
  • The team will play in the Big 12 and be coached by Rick Barnes.

We've put players into position groups largely based on where they played at Texas and fudged a few guys into slightly different positions just to round out the groups.
