You certainly got some balls ST. Thats gonna be a challenge for sure. There are some nice young pieces on that roster though. Thinking I was gonna end up with it, I've been talking myself into Calderon returning to form; Rose adding the 3 ball, and increasing assists with more scoring around him; Adolph staying healthy and making Buser proud. Who knows- they might happen. Maybe Griffin will be the real deal too. All I'll say is, after taking that bullet you must be due some good karma.
Thanks D, and Kal as well. But don't think I'm doing anyone any favors! I'm still coming for ya once the season starts!
There are definitely some pieces in place there - but I know I'll be eating several of those deals in the long term, whether I keep those guys on my roster or not. So the question will be, do I keep a guy just because he's signed, or do I just take the hit and move on? And right now, the only one sitting on that fence is Caldy. Watched the replay of USA-Spain a while ago, and his performance didn't inspire me much (0 for 5 with 3 ASTs,if I remember correctly - Navarro looked sharp though!). Yao might not be a bad deal - until we find out for certain he isn't coming back, at which point I'll be eligible for the ipe - if he comes back though, 9+M and 10+M aren't bad for this year and next.
But I'll save the analysis for the discussion thread - just know that I'm in it for the long haul regardless of what happens.

rookie scale: 1st pick 4.5M 5M [5.5M 6M if team option is exercised] 2nd pick 4M 4.5M [5M 5.5M if team option is exercised] 3rd pick 3.5M 4M [4.5M 5M if team option is exercised] 4th pick 3M 3.5M [4M 4.5M if team option is exercised] 5th pick 2.5M 3M [3.5M 4M if team option is exercised] 6th-10th picks 2M 2.5M [3M 3.5M if team option is exercised] 11th-16th picks 1M 1.5M [2M 2.5M if team option is exercised] 2nd rounders 500k [500k 750k if team option is exercised]
all former 1st round picks become restricted free agents after they complete the 3rd season of their rookie contracts (only possible if their team picked team option after 2nd season of the rookie contract) all former 2nd round picks become restricted free agents after they complete the 2nd season of their rookie contracts (only possible if their team picked team option after 1st season of the rookie contract)
restricted free agency explanation: after a player is nominated for bidding all teams are allowed to bid on him, including the team that holds his qualifying offer. however team that holds player's qual offer gains no advantage during the process of bidding, so it has no incentive to join the bidding. bidding goes same way as in regular free agency including all the rules (tie breakers etc.), until player is won, or if you prefer, until he signs an offer sheet with the highest bidder. at that point his old team will have another 24h to match that winning offer and keep the player. if the old team won the bidding, there can be no matching so he is signed straight away.

post your trades here. they will implemented once all teams involved confirm them here
trade related rules: -teams can under no circumstances go over the hard cap
-when trading future picks conditions have to be clearly defined at the time of the trade 1) teams are allowed to trade picks from next 3 drafts, at any point of the season at which trades are allowed 2) picks have to be owned by a team before they can be traded (you can't trade a pick from a draft in which you have no picks and then try to acquire one from a another team in order to complete previously arranged trade) 3) all kinds of protection are allowed, as long as they are clearly defined (for instance you can trade a pick that is top 10 protected in next draft/top 5 in year after that /top 1 protected in a year 3 so if your picks fall in the protected area 3 years in a row you get to keep them all) 4) future considerations have to be clearly defined and announced at the time of the trade (right to swap 1st pick in the next draft for instance). any future considerations that are not clearly defined will be considered collusion and punished 5) every team has to use their 1st round pick at least once in every 2 years
-when trading, draft picks carry no salary with them, but draft rights to drafted players carry draft pick's salary according to the rookie scale
-if a team is over the (soft) cap limit, or doing a trade that would put it over it, salary it's taking on in the trade must be within 125% + 100k of the salary it's giving up
relevant rules: -during the season every team must be able to start 9 players on any given day, meaning that it needs to be able to cover all positions at the same time
-if a team waives a player, waived player's salary counts against team's cap 75% the first year and 50% for subsequent years, regardless of whether that player gets signed by some other team at some point
-after player is waived he will automatically be placed on fa list, but the team that dropped him won't be allowed to bid on him or sign him to a one week contract for the rest of the season
-full or portion of mle can be waived. teams over the cap gain nothing by doing this
