Draft Picks, Trades, and Free Agent Signings

an executive could not be found, so conservative estimates are used in

executive's tenure with a particular franchise may be missing from the
Indianapolis Jets Franchise (January 1, 1948 - December 31, 1948)
Virginia Squires Franchise (January 1, 1967 - December 31, 1969)
