Since we're taking this week to preview the 2018-19 NBA season for the Northwest Division, we thought it would be fun to hold a snake draft involving players currently on the Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets. Representing each team in the division was a member of our staff, and they were allowed to make only six selections - a starting five and a sixth man.

Below is the order and results of the draft, followed by each team's lineup.

Draft Order

1 - Carlan Gay (@TheCarlanGay)

2 - Gilbert McGregor (@GMcGregor21)

3 - Scott Rafferty (@crabdribbles)

4 - Kyle Irving (@KyleIrv_)

5 - Micah Adams (@MicahAdams13)

The order then reserved each round. For example, Micah Adams picked first (6th overall) and Carlan Gay picked last (10th overall) in the second round.
