That will definitely be one of the options. I debated even putting it up. Given the 4-0 lead and the eveness of the trade i feel pretty safe allowing the draft to continue personally, though if the next pick wanted to wait until later tonight, early tomorrow, when the vote is 6+ it might be safer

IMO you should follow the league rules for trades. Including the 48 hr review. There should be a "gentleman's" agreement between the two teams as to whom to draft. In this case the Clippers should have made the 2nd pick and Dusty's the 3rd with an agreement as to whom to select for each other. Then when the trade is approved, you just swap players / picks agreed to. There is some risk because there is a very very very small chance the trade could be rejected. But in that case, another deal could be worked out to correct the unbalanced trade.
If you tell someone who you want, that player becomes more expensive.
As far as the 48 hour rule. I think we are all big boys and can do what we want with our teams. I've seen vetoed trades ruin leagues before. Unless a trade is out of this world, who is someone to say the trade shouldn't happen.

I think you agree to the terms of the trade first. Then you can exchange players names after the terms are set.
I agree. I strongly dislike the idea of a league review of trades. The value of a trade is in the eye of the beholder. Having said that, there needs to be some kind of oversight to ensure that there is no collusion or other deceitful practices that hurt the league as a whole.

I dont think anyone was questioning that this trade was fair, but it points to a hole in the rules that could become an issue if a questionable trade came up. As of now if we had to revert this we would put both players back to the pool of players and pick 2 would be on the clock.
