NBA General Managers cast their unofficial votes
GM Survey: 2005-06 Sixth Man Award

April 28, 2006 -- Prior to the start of the 2005-06 season, NBA.com conducted its fourth annual survey of NBA General Managers, gathering predictions for the coming year.

Now, we’re re-visiting the survey, asking GMs, with the season now complete, who they think are the best in the game in regard to the six season ending awards, as well as the GMs' picks for Executive of the Year. We asked each GM to rank their top three in each category. We, then, awarded five points for a first-place vote, three for a second and one for a third to arrive at our totals.

Of the GM's who responded to our survey, here's who the guys that call the shots think should receive the hardware.
