I know in yahoo! we can show who is on the block but during the preseason it'd be handy to have a thread where we could declare who's potentially available etc.

Just my 2c

i moved this to the discussion thread. i'll make a thread for trade blocks

I think if the bids are close enough in average value (haven't run any numbers, but for arguments sake say 105%) that it should be determined by the points system. This IMO gives more to the reality of the situation of players not taking a small amount more money to play in a bad situation or leave their current team for a very minor increase in salary.

Not sure if anyone wants to use the points system this often, but in really shouldn't be that hard, just have everyone have a tallied total points and then if it is your current team you add 10, and then determine position points.

Just a thought.


this is definitely something we would need a league vote for. i'd like to use points system as seldom as possible so my vote would go against this idea. as i said last year, i realize that the points system is the best option we could come up with, but it is still a bad option in my opinion and i'd like to avoid it whenever possible

Thanks re: the trade block thread.

Regarding the point system, if you plan on overhauling it anyhow and we can think of something better in the coming days/weeks then perhaps we should consider it. I like the realism it brings, but my criticism of it would be that it's a bit cumbersome.

What we're moving to next season in the league I commish is actually a dice roll, where numbers 1 through 6 determine the free agent's mindset. For example, if you roll a one the player just leaves, a 2 is a sign-and-trade (so you get something back), while 3 through 6 means the holding team can resign them, with some minor variations on the money. That said, my league works on a completely different dynamic for (restricted) free agency, and the forum site allows me to upload hacks for ie. dice rolls, but the basic concept of using chance to determine a free agent's mindset is something we could consider. There are random number generators online as well as a myriad of other ways to determine the result.

The thing for me is that if you are outbid by someone but you are in a situation that is better for that player then I think you should be able to match that bid and be winning instead of having to outbid again.

Yeah, but thats a very subjective call.

Money should decide all but the cases where a player has multiple bids like max offers, MLE or LLE. In those cases we want a tiebreaker that is both simple and clear cut. Rolling a dice works for me.

I am very against ever using a dice. that makes the league far more about luck thanit ever should be. I'm looking for as nmuch realism as possible which is the driving force behind this suggestion because it is based on actual basketball information. I understand wanting to keep it simpler and only use it on max offers like mle, min, max, but not at all a roll of the dice idea.

so i know this is a little late but I didn't think off it until another keeper league, but shouldn't draft order be based on regular season standings?
