NBA Front Office: Q&A / Random Fan Mail
« on: February 16, 2017, 11:47:34 AM »
I get these PM's regularly. So please understand the motivation behind this post is not to make fun of anybody's lack of knowledge, but quite the opposite: to show that every question is worth asking.

Before I embarrass myself on the main message board I want to confirm a transaction I would like to make it legal.

Wrong! Why do we have a Q&A section? For experts to show off? No. It's for beginners to learn. Please post all your questions directly here.

I have player ABC on a non-gtd contract.

Wrong. As reminds us, all contracts became guaranteed on January 10.

I would like to waive him and sign player XYZ for minimum salary.

So far so good, just send a PM to the player's agent (that would be me) and hope for the best.
When waiving players, remember that sometimes it is useful to stretch them. (Hint: in this case, it is not.)

From what i can tell this is legal because while I am over the hard cap and I am under the apron.

Nope, and nope. First of all, trust me when I say all 30 NBAFO teams are way under their hard caps.
More importantly though, MPE pretty much trumps any kind of cap and can be used always:

Am I correct on this?  If so I will submit the actual transaction in the correct spot.   

Why would you shoot yourself in the foot by submitting a waiver before you land the new guy?
Instead, just tell the agent you'd be waiving Mr. ABC if the free agent signs with you. If he does, only then post the waiver.

Can someone let me know what this darker grey represents?

Good question, I drew a blank for a sec there :rofl:

Now I remember:
I made him dark grey to show to any GM recruits the flexibility there:
he can either be waived and stretched if you ever need the 15th salary spot, or otherwise you can use his corpse for salary-matching purposes in any future trade!

I have it as 1331 for first 19 positions...

Either way we're still ok if you take the amnesties (and Sagan's DNS) into account. Unless of course BOTD wins it :rofl:

  • GeoffTheScout: Win son. Lol. Just looking to drop some salary where I can and pick up some picks this year if possible. But, mainly get 1st round picks this year I has none.
    February 18, 2017, 05:17:05 PM
  • RyanJames5: Yeah. Looks like we're more or less trying to do the same thing then. My team isn't very good but I pay a group of guys way too much.
    February 18, 2017, 05:25:49 PM
  • RyanJames5: The owner before me dealt the farm for Love paid for the year. So now I have like 2 good players and no picks.

  • indiansnation: Taillon,marco gonzalez for tomlin,doningo santana and a.dickerson of
    February 18, 2017, 06:14:47 PM
  • Jonathan: Taillon bp in deal, but Marco isnt even a prospect anymore. If Domingo stays healthy, it could be close.
    February 18, 2017, 06:19:52 PM
  • indiansnation: Ok johnathan would u make the trade
    February 18, 2017, 06:22:52 PM
  • indiansnation: My of is week part of team
    February 18, 2017, 06:23:28 PM
  • Jonathan: No, because Domingo is likely to be hurt. Look for better package for Taillon. In his limited MLB action, he looks like it was worth the wait.
    February 18, 2017, 06:24:58 PM
  • RyanJames5: I don't think I make that deal Indians
    February 18, 2017, 06:25:25 PM
