Andrew Hunter and Nick Moran never dreamed of playing in the NBA. As a child, Hunter aspired to be a journeyman left-handed relief pitcher in the Majors, and Moran longed to anchor the Irish 4x400 team in the Olympics. But as Hunter is in fact a righty, and the Irish are infamously slow, they had to settle.
In the Spring of 2013, the pair declared for the NBA Draft, each employing the other as his agent, and were deemed "Free Agents" by Andy Taub, the VP of Salary Cap.
ANDREW HUNTER is a copywriting student at Miami Ad School (Brooklyn). He is a semi-pro oyster shucker and retired tour manager. His basketball experience, though limited, ended on a high point with a win in the 1997 Metairie Playground 10 Year Old Championship. Hunter finished with 4 points and a bounce pass assist, as the well-coached Hurricanes topped the division rival Trojans 16-12.
While he has no real preference as to when he is drafted, he politely requests not to be drafted by the Houston Rockets.

NICK MORAN first disappointed his father at the age of three when he accidentally walked through wet paint in the kitchen. He later forgave the boy. However what Nick's father could never forgive was Nick's inability to shoot a reliable three ball. "You're a Moran. You should be able to knock 'em down all over the court," he'd say after each year's basketball tryouts ended in failure.
Now, at 25 years young, Nick Moran -- formerly of the University of Miami -- is seeking to prove the haters, the League, and his father wrong by swishing trifectors in an NBA arena near you.
