Pacers Gaming are emerging as the favourite to win the LetsGetItRamo sweepstakes, league sources tell DIMER.

With the final pick in the expansion draft, Hawks Talon GC takes x ARSONAL, the former CLTX Gaming big man.
Late addition oShockey goes seventh to Nets Gaming Crew.
T-Wolves Gaming selects defensive stalwart iFEAST with the sixth pick in the expansion draft.
Former Magic Gaming point guard KontruL goes fifth overall to L.A. to join Mootyy.
Former Kings Guard big man Mootyy goes fourth overall to Lakers Gaming.
T-Wolves Gaming has an agreement to draft and trade oLARRY with the third pick to Cavs Legion GC in exchange for Hood.
Nets Gaming Crew will select Finals MVP NateKahl with the second pick in the expansion draft. NateKahl won a championship in his first season with Knicks Gaming.

The Cavs have traded Hood to T-Wolves Gaming for the third overall pick in the 2018 NBA 2K League expansion draft.
