Title: Questions/Suggestions
Post by: Vik on July 16, 2018, 02:09:56 AM
Post here if you have any questions regarding rules or suggestions you'd like to see added/changed.

You will want to look at the rules again as I just made some updates and hopefully do a final update within a dew days. For the time being all rules will remain under 1 post so if anything is unclear or you think needs tweaking don't hesitate to bring it up.

This is a bigger projected than I intially wanted to take up, but I have committed to the challange so I'd appreciate all input.
Title: Re: Questions/Suggestions
Post by: Vik on July 19, 2018, 12:41:29 PM
Here is a quick update on where we stand:

1. We got 16 committed teams and at this point it seems likely this will be the number but I'm happy to accept 2 or 4 more teams by the 25th.

2. I have already created the league on Fantrax so will ensure all rules are in place and then everyone will be added- you'll likely just get "Team 1, 2, 3" etc assigned until you pick your franchise. Note- Brian (indiansnation) is the official co-comish with handling Fantrax as his sole duty (I will help of course and if anyone else wants to volunteer let me know).

3. Barring something unforeseen, I will make the final rule updates this Sunday (major outstanding things include buyouts, salary payments on trade, playoff rules and IR- see #4). Ideally I want to officially start the league sometime next week.

4. If no one has objections I will remove IR, cause if I am being honest I simply don't like the idea of staying on top of it, it's 1 added element to a lot that I will already need to stay on top of.  In addition the inactive squad more than makes up for no IR- the only thing is you will not get any salary cap relief and you'll need to have expenditure budget to make the promotion/demotion (but I think this also adds to the challenge)

5. Now is the time to speak up if you'd like to see any rules added/amended or if anything is unclear.

6. Finally, I will update the team salaries (so everyone knows exactly which numbers we are using) and include what picks each has in the rookie draft. And then what every is asking is how we will decide teams- here is my idea:

All teams are eligible. Everyone sends me a PM with their top 3 options and then it will be as follows:

If you have a team as your 1st option and no one else has them in the top 3 you automatically get that team.

If your 1st choice overlaps with anyone else in their top 3, but your 2nd choice does not you then get your 2nd choice. 

If both your 1st/2nd choice overlap but 3rd does not you get your 3rd choice.

If all 3 of your choice overlap with at least 1 other team we start from the top again excluding teams already assigned. This time if you have a team at 1 and no one else has them at 1 (but this time they could have them 2 or 3) you get that team.

Repeat above but this time it is your 2nd choice and if no one has them at 1 or 2 you get that team.

I am not 100% sure this would work but it is the most creative idea I came up without simply doing a random draft (which is always an option). Odds are some teams will still not get assigned so maybe there can just a be a random draft for teams left. This is definitely not for sure so feel free to share your ideas! If we do go this route I'd send my list to Brian before anyone else sends theirs to me so I can also be held accountable and at the end all lists will be posted to ensure it's a fair process.

In the event we keep it simple and do a random draft order it was suggested I make top 4 teams off limit, while I am not fully sold on this I am definitely open to the idea (teams would be GS, HOU, Boston and then either Philly or OKC).

A lot to digest here along with all the rules but I think we should be rolling soon  :toast:

I like the idea you have in place sort-of blind bidding.

I think for any remaining players it should be a draft. Like each team must release 4-5 players to make room for the draft. Or make it to where each team can only keep their starting 5 then draft the rest.

The other option, would be to turn all the left over players into FA, and do a FA bidding war. With no-cap penatly when you drop someone to add a new player. Give teams X amount of time to get under the max player threshold.

Third option. Draft all teams in the league minus rookies. Do a rookie draft, where draft picks and players can be traded. Then open up FA to all remaining players, and run it like a regular FA.

Lol then of course there is always the full-fantasy draft option.

are we going to send our PM's now about 3 teams we like?....

my suggestions on:
*picking teams-
-the top 3 options(worth a try)
-or order of signups choose first
-or random picks using this site ( http://www.draftpicklottery.com/lottery.php )
  >1 ball each team
  >or more balls to who sign up early

*4 teams of limits: 2 each from west(GS,HOU) and east(BOS,TOR or PHI)

Ya I do like removing two teams from each conference, then having a FA or draft for the left over players.
Title: Re: Questions/Suggestions
Post by: Billy on July 19, 2018, 02:56:27 PM
I'd be fine with either team selection criteria.

Then you get that team's roster and the 1 free drop

Then all the player's left over from unpicked teams (or those that are dropped), you just operate it like regular FA. Don't really like blind bidding for all FAs.

In terms of sending the list you can send now but no rush I will set a deadline once it's confirmed we are going with this method. However, since i got a few lists already I did send mine to indiansnation

This is what I always intended, and with the inactive squad each team can still get some FAs even if they keep the total players from the team they get- of course finding cap space may require some work

Third option is pretty much what I had in mind, though I wouldn't mind a 1 or 2 round draft before hand but in this draft you'd still inherent the player's original contract.

Personally, I don't like the 2nd suggestion and I think 1 free drop plus buyouts is what we will stick with as it will make it more interesting...the buyout rule I put in place should hopefully allow for some flexibility

Rookie draft is a lock. I will have the updated list of picks as I am sticking to the original rule Willy and I agreed upon where picks belong to original teams regardless if they were traded in real life.
Title: Re: Questions/Suggestions

And I assume the order would be by standings from real life? Or would draft rookie order get randomized?

Post by: Vik on July 20, 2018, 01:34:54 PM
Based on early feedback, there seems to be no objections and plenty of support for the top 3 approach to picking teams so this is what we will stick with unless someone strongly opposes. I've gotten plenty of lists already but lease feel free to send your list anytime- I think cut off will be next fri the 27th! That way I can hopefully create the spreadsheets during the weekend and also do a quick draft for anyone left who did not get assigned a team based on method.

Just so everyone is clear- All teams are eligible for the top 3 process, removing top 4 teams was only if we did a regular random draft.


I also have no objections to removing IR, so again unless someone gives me a strong reason not to do so I will remove it when I do the final rule update (I am away from tomorrow night to early Sun but goal is still to finalize by Sun night).
Title: Re: Questions/Suggestions
Post by: Vik on July 23, 2018, 06:23:31 PM
1 last question for everyone- for inhering of current contracts do we want to do varied yearly contracts or make it the average for the total years reaming. If you look at the example buyout I used James Johnson

14,651,70, $15,349,400, $16,047,100 (2020-2021)

Option 1- round to nearest 100k and keep salary varied 14.7m, 15.3m and 16m

Option 2- take the total (46m) and then average it out which would be 15.3m each year

I am open to either option but right now leaning on option 2

Option 2 for salaries is what we are rolling with.

Also 1 more very important thing I completely forgot to mention- Any players with team/player options will automatically be picked up

e.g. Lebron opted out in real life this off season but he will be property of Cleveland-at 33.3m-if anyone ends up with them).

However, for any FA with expiring deals this off season and no options I will allow the team to choose whether they want to retain them for 1 year at the 2017-2018 salary or let them become FA- no cost and would not count as a free drop either.

e.g. If anyone ends up with the Pelicans they can choose to keep Cousins for 1 year at 18.1m or let him become a FA.

If anyone has objections to this feel free to post but I figured this is a relatively fair decision.

If anyone has objections to this feel free to post but I figured this is a relatively fair decision.

Important change- player/team options will actually not be picked up as it gets too complicated to figure out specific salaries (it's hard enough to ensure I base salaries pre any potential extensions this off season). So All starting salaries/years will be only based on players under guaranteed contract years as they were to end the season, with the exception being 1 year deals for expired players this off season if chosen to retain these players.

With this said- players who had team/player options this year like Lebron are now in the same pool as those who just had regular expiring contracts, i.e. you can now choose if you want these players for 1 year at the 2017-2018 salary. I hope no one has issues with this change.

2 quick things I'm considering and may make official when I send the next PM but I'll post here to get some feedback first.

1. Allowing for 2 Franchise Tags (but you have to use them on a different position). I think if a team can afford it and wants to keep 2 players at the franchise price it should be allowed

2. This is a rule from the Gridiron Franchise NFL and I think it is even better suited for us with the fact we don't have traditional resigning:

Awarding a 10% discount on any Free agents won who were previously on the same team last season. Example I traded for Barnes on his expiring deal this year and don't think he is worth keeping with the franchise tag but I want to go after him again in FA next year- if I win him at, for example 15m per a year, I would then get him at 13.5m

Thoughts?
Title: Re: Questions/Suggestions
Post by: GeoffTheScout on August 02, 2018, 03:16:51 PM
I like it giving guys a hometown discount, and allows teams to keep high-end guys they either grew or traded for on more team friendly deals.

As for the franchise tags, I am not a big fan of that because they can be a cap killer, with large $$ values. I would rather see something like comp picks than franchise tag. Like if I am the Wolves and I let Butler walk and the Suns sign him, get a comp back at the end of round one. Only do it for like top-10 players leaving teams or something, with the top-5 bringing back a 1st and the bottom 5 a second. I personally would prolly not use the tag if it follows the NFL guidelines of median of top-10 salaries per position or 110% of last years # which ever is greater.

Franchise tag is the average of the top-5 per position. So if you have a PG, you're pretty well screwed, with Curry, Westbrook, Paul, Wall all making a crazy high number. Not sure who the 5th would be (James Harden if we're counting him as a PG/SG, but quick glance someone like Lillard, McCollum, Holiday, Lowry).

Not sure I'm franchise tagging a middle of the pack player for $32-35m a year. I think most people will hit FA and not many people will use their franchise tag, other than if that actually have one of the top-5 players in their position.

Or maybe the rule needs to be amended slightly somehow...

Just posted the draft list: http://www.profsl.com/smf/index.php?topic=334792.0

It's just wherever your team picked in the real NBA, minus the 10 teams that aren't in this league.

Your Bulls are in the 5 slot. (You should swap with me since I let you have your hometown team :))

Title: Re: Questions/Suggestions
Post by: Vik on August 03, 2018, 11:21:36 AM
10% discount rule is in effect and after seeing the DEN/ATL there is a ruling on trading picks where you can only deal current year and 1 future year- so until the start of the season only 2018 and 2019 deals will be traded.

I'll also mention this in the next PM for anyone who may miss it here
Title: Re: Questions/Suggestions
Post by: Brent on August 03, 2018, 11:36:05 AM
The NBA is garbage for a lot of reasons, but the trading of future picks is one of them.  I'm glad this is nipped early on as I would hate to be the guy who takes over a team in a couple years only to find out that they have no picks and no players to show from it.  2 years out may be too far, current year +1, would be better, IMO.

Exactly my sentiments, and thoughts.

But with the current trade the decision was made already. Could’ve easily have just made the 2 teams trade their 2019 2nd rounders though

I see valid reasoning as to not allowing it but I also think given that the rules require potential pick compensation for RFA's and then also trading for any guys that get Franchise Tagged I figured allowing everyone 6 picks to work with in a given season is fair- though my initial thought was to allow 2 future years but cap it at max being allowed to move 4 out 6 available picks each year. So if someone moves both 2020s and both 2018s they must keep both 2019s or any other combination.  However, I figured to keep it simple and not put a restriction but if there is more support for this I am fine with it either way.

I see the reasoning, but as someone who has had to take over neglected teams that need rebuilding numerous times on this site, I tend to lean more towards not allowing GMs to totally ruin a team.  If X player who they trade their future picks for ends up getting injured or in a situation where they don't produce to warrant pick compensation when they are lost during FA, they the team has no players, no pick compensation and no picks.

 :iatp:


I am fine with unleashing the 2020 picks, once our 2018-19 season starts.

Summer is when a lot of trades happen, so allowing 2020 picks to be up for trade right now, I think dilutes their value a ton, since it's so far away from the 2020 draft.



I also mentioned this to Vik: (Assuming we had RFA bidding this summer - we do not. Just an example. But we will next year)

For RFA, we would only have 2018 and 2019 picks available for compensation.

So if a team goes trigger happy and trades their 4 picks, they would be locked out of RFA bidding - I like this because there's some strategy behind trading picks, an extra thing to think about. Some teams just throw them around like candy and don't think twice.

Also, being able to receive either 2018 or 2019 picks makes it more appealing to the owner of that RFA (The owner of the RFA should have the choice of which pick they wanted to take, 2018 or 2019).
If all a team has is a 2020 pick, that's a loooong ways away and isn't really that appealing for a team to take as compensation.

If a team has say, the 8th overall pick but bids on an RFA for $18m per year, then the team owning the RFA has a choice between either matching the bid, or taking the 8th overall pick. A little more appealing than a 2020 pick which is 2 years away from knowing anything about it.

And also who knows where we'll in in 2 years from now, half of us might not be in the league. At least if you get a choice between 2018 or 2019 picks, you have the choice  between knowing what position the 2018 pick is (draft list available), or having a general idea of how the team bidding on your RFA will do in the standings next year, based on their roster.

(Again... This is just an example as if we had RFA this summer. We DO have RFA next summer in 2019, so the choice would then be between the 2019 picks or 2020 picks)

Thank you in advance!

Regarding spreadsheet vs Fantrax free agent discrpency, the list on the spreadaheet are all guys who expired this past season but it will not include anyone who was simply a FA to end last year. However, all guys on Fantrax are certainly up for bidding.

In terms of dates, I sent PM but this was a few days before you joined so see below:


1. RFA - Tuesday July 9th, 12pm EST to Monday July 29th 12pm EST 

After the 29th, no more bids can be started but all open bids can continue as long as needed. 

All RFAs not posted will enter regular FA pool.

2. Draft -  Friday July 26th until complete 

I asssume should be around 2 weeks give or take a few days.

Small overlap with RFA but I feel around this point RFA will die down and with so much time 20 day RFA period seems reasonable.

3. Regular FA - Friday August 9th 12pm EST.

Anytime before season starts is ok it's pretty irrelevant until then. For now if not specified I am placing most guys on active roster if there is room.

However, while offseason moves have no cost, keep in mind we have a 30m budget that kicks in once season starts.

A) More teams getting a 1st Round Bye in Playoffs (ie. Top-2 in each conference?)
B) Fewer teams make the playoffs


With B, just an idea, but throwing it out there to the league to see if we like having most teams make playoffs and see what happens, or do we want to reward the better teams throughout the season by not having as many playoff teams, and therefor a week less of playoff match-ups where anything can happen in a weekly match-up.

A) personally I am not a fan of more than 1 bye per a confrence but open to getting a vote on this

B) I think removing 2 teams is a good idea but maybe others like it as is. If we do remove I would say keep 4 wildcards and do top 4 instead of 5 per confrence. Again can get a vote on this.

Of course neither change would happen this year either way.

Will we be changing anything regarding our playoff matchups in response to the NBA suspending its regular season? Reports are inconsistent about the suspension length, but I read one that mentioned 1 month minimum...

I got no clue what will happen. Chances are we cannot have a proper champion this year but if NBA resumes season we can go from there.

I would be shocked if they do not have real life playoffs at some point, but potentially ending regular season short would not suprise me.

The actual seeding in real life could be impacted a fair bit for both confrence but realistically the top 8 in each confrence as of yesterday's stoppage would probably make it in some order either way.

So my gut feeling is NBA could technically resume by starting real life playoffs and if this is case we simply have to put an astriks for the 2019-2020 BOD champ.

minor suggestion:

is it possible to have a summary tab on the spreadsheet that lists team name, manager name, manager profsl link, salary cap available for the next few years?

not sure how much trouble this is or if this was previously brought up

Added this. Did current and next year's cap for now figure keep it simple not too many numbers on summary since you can see each team in detail.

Looks great thanks so much.  The only other thing would be linking the team name to tabs.  I think he cross court dynasty sheet does this
