I'll commish, but only if I can full redraft, put in place the initial set of rules as I see fit, and get a sub-committee of 3 GM's to delegate some of the grunt work to. And only if 10 GM's throw their support behind me, I'm not going in with less than a majority or more than 6 teams vacant.
Regarding the redraft, I'm not going to stuff around with a transition from Kal's rules to a new set. I'd want a fresh canvas, and I'd model the league on the other two leagues I'm in, one of which I commish* (http://www.eastsidefantasy.proboards.com
, & http://www.westsidefantasy.proboards.com
), but with a softcap, MLE and some other tweaks. I'll borrow selectively from the new CBA deal as it comes out. Both the above leagues have been successful, and we can build on that. As we would redraft the new set of rules wouldn't favour anyone.League outline as followsweekly
16 or 18 teams, no future expansions.
std 9 cats
pg x 2, sg x 2, sf x 2, pf x 2, c x 2, u x 2, b x 6 (15 min, 18 max)
$100m hard cap (lifted to ie. $120m in the offseason)
$80m softcap, after which certain restrictions apply (ie. MLE, BAE...)
Dynasty tag (retain 1 uncontracted player each offseason)
All other uncontracted players go directly into unrestricted free agency.
2 round free agent draft (top 32 players) each offseason
All drafted players take hoopshype salary incl. team options, QO, but not player options
Minimum salary $500k, Max $30m x 4
20% value bonus for each extra year offered (up to 4 year contracts)
10% limit on front/backloading
Player buyouts at 75%, GM's able to pay off debts early
GM's able to trade 1st round pick from next draft only, with compulsory top 3 protection.
Private auctions via PMSub-committee (3 GM's required)
trade review committee of 3 GM's (not including myself) consisting of:
1. recruiting officer
2. salary cap auditor
3. forum manager
Finally, I'm not spending much if any time recruiting. If 10 GM's post in here and throw their support behind me by the time I return from Bali (Wed Nov 23rd) then we're on. Otherwise, it's back to the wilderness.
