Second round rookies= only non guaranteed contracts.

I'd recommend team options on the final year of 2 and 3 year contracts, and on years 3 and 4 of 4 year contracts. I'd also make the buyout(to exercise the option), 25% of his salary that year if in the final year of his contract. If he has the final 2 years of a 4 year contract remaining, the buyout is 50% of his year 3 salary.

Just to clarify, do you mean that any 2,3 and 4th year contract will have team options at the end of them, or is this just meant for first round picks?

This would be for all players, not just rookies. right now the 1st round rookies are the only players that already have the team options.

This sounds like the same sort of thing I current have in the rules under Buyouts- its just the % that are different.

So essentially buyouts and Team Options are the same thing?

Basically, the "buyout" here is the equivalent of the amount of money a team would have to pay to not exercise the remainder of the player's contract. The difference between team options and buyout in your rules is a team option it's only available in specific years of certain contracts. If you want to buyout someone before he hits the team option, you have to follow the 75%, 50% rule.

Ok, so a TO isn't a get out of jail free card- there is still a cost. Got it! ;-D
Will add this to the rules sometime soon.

We'll need an easy way of tracking how long the original contract was in our spreadsheets. Having columns for my BYS, N, r variables would be an easy and relevant way to do this.

I assume you would only be able to excerice this option in the offseason? During the season regular rules apply?

Yeah, I assumed that you'd have to buy them before the season starts. Once games begin, if the player is still on your roster it is assumed that you excercised your TO and his contract is guaranteed for that year.
