general rules and notes


-h2h league

-cats: standard 9 cat league (fg%, ft%, 3ptm, pts, reb, ast, stl, blk, to)

-no can't cut list

-trade deadline - yahoo default

-provider will be decided later depending on play-offs customization options. candidates are yahoo and espn

-daily roster changes

-play-off format: 8 teams make the play-offs

-veto - league vote, half of the league has to veto the trade in order for veto to become official

-order of picking in the college draft will be determined by lottery

-all off-season and salary related business will be conducted on the league forum here at cafe

-my ultimate goal when i started thinking about this league was to have 30 teams so we might want to consider expansion next year if worthy candidates come forward

-this league is played all through the year. you are not required to be on call 24/7 but you are required to be reachable all through the year and answer all trade proposals and inquiries as soon as possible. this means that you should warn the rest of the league if you are going to be unreachable over extended period of time and that you should keep checking league site at least once a week

-this league is for committed owners only. everyone who isn't active enough will be replaced. regularly setting lineup is requirement in this league not a sign of activity; not responding to trade offers is a sign of inactivity

-open tanking, collusion and any other behavior that breaks the rules of sportsmanship will be harshly punished. some of you know that i had to punish managers who didn't follow clearly defined rules in the past, so you can testify that i have no problem with doing it. i don't expect any problems in this league, but i feel it's only fair that i include this warning. speaking of tanking, you are allowed to trade present for future, but you are not allowed to bench players unless you are trying to win certain categories by doing it. this might sound like an obvious thing to most of you, bit i've seen it happen in one league where a guy decided to improve his lottery chances by benching his entire team in the last week of regular season. that is not allowed



roster rules


-entire year will be split into 2 periods: season and off-season. in the off-season some of the cap and roster limits are somewhat relaxed

-roster will consist of 9 starters and 3-5 reserves. we will have 3 bench spots and 2 spots on inactive list; players on the inactive list are not allowed to play during the week

-starting roster: pg, sg, g, sf, pf, f, c, c, ut

-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

-during the season every team must have between 12 and 14 players under contract and at least 12 players on the active roster at every moment

-during off-season every team must have between 5 and 20 players under contract at every moment

-if a team violates roster or cap restrictions at any point of the season or off-season commish will make the necessary moves (drops and/or pickups) to bring it back within the limits


cap rules


-entire year will be split into 2 periods: season and off-season. in the off-season some of the cap and roster limits are somewhat relaxed

-teams can under no circumstances go over the hard cap

-all player salaries will have to be within limits of maximum and minimum salary, set for that part of the season (season/off-season)
during the season all team salary totals have to be within 44M and 80M (hard cap limit)
during the off-season all team salary totals have to be within 10M and 80M (hard cap limit)

-teams that find themselves over or at the soft cap at the beginning of the off-season will be awarded mle for the purpose of signing free agents (resigning own free agents doesn't affect mle), that lasts until the end of the season, but can not be traded, or combined with other exceptions

-after using up mle, teams over the (soft) cap can only offer one year min salary deals to free agents

-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

-team salaries can only go over the soft cap limit, but not over hard cap, under 5 scenarios
1) due to back loaded salaries increasing at the start of the season
2) due to signing of a drafted rookie to a rookie deal
3) due to using whole or a part of mle, or offering min deal after mle is used up
4) due to completing a trade that follows trade rules (see the rule above this one)
5) due to resigning own free agent (bird rights)

-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 (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

-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

-when resigning a free agent, his old team is allowed to offer maximum yearly increases of the first year salary of 15% as long as it doesn’t exceed maximum yearly salary limitation or decreases of 15% as long as it doesn't go bellow the minimum yearly salary limit. other teams can offer up to 10% increases or decreases with same limitations

-when offering contracts to free agents:
1) offers within 50% and 100% of the maximum have to be between 2 and 4 years long
2) offers within 25% and 49% of the maximum have to be between 1 and 3 years long
3) offers smaller then 25% of the maximum can go between 1 and 2 years

-team can't match other team's offer to unrestricted free agent, if it's able to outbid it. only situation where repeating existing offer is permitted is if team can't outbid a current offer under cap rules
when several teams over the cap are offering full mle or if more teams are offering max contract, for instance

-when a free agent receives more then one contract offer, he is awarded to a team based on next 3 criteria
1) he is awarded to a team that offers the highest average salary
2) if he receives two or more offers with same average salaries, he is awarded to team depending on offered contract length
-if the average salary is between 25% and 100% of the maximum he is awarded to a team that offers the longest contract
-if the average salary is lower then 25% of the maximum he is awarded to a team that offers the shortest contract
3) if 2 or more teams offer same contract length player is awarded to a team based on a point system defined bellow. thinking behind this system is that when weighing offers players are looking for 4 things: to resign with current team, to play on a best team possible, to get as much play time as possible, to play for a "franchise going in a good direction". in this case "direction" of the organization is gonna be measured by efficiency of its money spending. to determine team's efficiency its salary will be divided by total cat wins from a previous season and teams will be ranked according to the results

-team that is trying to resign its own free agent, gets 10 points

-team success:
0) top 5 teams based on regular season standings form season before last get 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 point respectively
1) current play-off winner gets 5 points
2) teams that end up 3rd, 5th and 7th in the play-offs get a point each
3) regular season winner gets 16 points
4) regular season runner up gets 14 points
5) team that ended up 3rd in regular season gets 13 points
6) team that ended up 4th in regular season gets 12 points
...
15) team that ended up 15th in regular season gets 1 point

-play time
1) if team has no players eligible to play fa's position under contract it gets 15 points
2) if team has 1 player eligible to play fa's position under contract it gets 11 points
3) if team has 2 players eligible to play fa's position under contract it gets 6 points
4) if team has 3 players eligible to play fa's position under contract it gets 2 point
5) if team has 4 or more players eligible to play fa's position under contract it gets 0 points
if a player is eligible for multiple positions, position that gives the team best chance to sign him is considered when calculating that teams point total. this means that different teams can attempt to "sign a player for a different position"

-team direction
1) top 2 teams get 8 points
2) next 2 teams get 7 points
...
8) last 2 teams get a point each

team with most points gets the player
in case of a tie:
1) resigning team gets the player
2) team with better regular season record wins
3) team with more pt points wins
4) team with better team direction wins

-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

-if a player plays in 40 games or less over 2 full seasons his team will be allowed to waive him for medical reasons and recover all remaining cap space owed to that player. if it is over the cap even after injured player comes off books, team also receives injured player exception (ipe) worth 60% of the waived player's salary. ipe can be used, full or in part, to sign no more then one player. this can be done as soon as it becomes clear that player will miss required number of games.
for instance if player misses entire season and then misses first 42 of his team's games during next season

-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

-during the season every team can sign up to 40 one week contracts with free agents. one week contracts will count against the cap as min offers. when a player receives one week offer, he immediately accepts it, so there is no bidding on that player until his one week contract runs out. after one week contract is finished, player goes back to fa list and his former team retains no fa rights over him. this means that any team is free to either offer him guaranteed contract or sign him to one week contract the moment he becomes an fa. once a player receives guaranteed contract offer and bidding on him starts, he is no longer available to sign a one week contract, until his guaranteed contract is waived or runs out and he goes back to fa list

-if team attempts to make a move that puts its salary over the hard cap limit, commish is required to intervene and block that attempt. trade and/or fa signing will be automatically vetoed.

-if a team can't meet roster requirements (either in roster size or in covering positions) without going over the hard cap, at any point of the season, commish will add best (per basketballmonster rankings) available (other teams will be allowed to bid on those players before they are awarded to offending team) players for min salary in order to meet requirements and then drop a player (or minimal number of players if no one player does the job) to ww from offending team's roster, whose salary puts the team over the hard cap. as further punishment offending team's hard cap in the coming season will be reduced by amount that it was exceeded during the offense

this is based on current results of the vote. there will be few things added, that we've discussed lately, but aren't really important for the draft

-roster will consist of 9 starters and 3-5 reserves. we will have 3 bench spots and 2 spots on inactive list; players on the inactive list are not allowed to play during the week. if we decide to go with weekly transactions we'll have 5 bench spots

-starting roster: pg, sg, g, sf, pf, f, c, c, ut

-during the season every team must be able to start 9 players, meaning that it needs to be able to cover all positions at the same time

-during the season every team must have between 11 and 14 players under contract and at least 11 players on the active roster at every moment

-during off-season every team must have between 5 and 20 players under contract at every moment

-during draft/auction teams can't go over the soft cap (65M)

3) offers smaller then 25% of the maximum can go between 1 and 2 years

-team can't match other team's offer to unrestricted free agent in both average salary and contract length, if it's able to outbid it. only situation where repeating existing offer is permitted is if team can't outbid the current offer under cap rules. if 2 or more teams have same amount of cap free and bid it all on a player, that player is awarded to a team that comes out as a winner of a roto mini-league based on last year's numbers.

-when a free agent receives more then one contract offer, he is awarded to a team based on next 3 criteria
1) he is awarded to a team that offers the highest average salary
2) if he receives two or more offers with same average salaries, he is awarded to team depending on offered contract length
-if the average salary is between 25% and 100% of the maximum he is awarded to a team that offers the longest contract
-if the average salary is lower then 25% of the maximum he is awarded to a team that offers the shortest contract

-maximum salary increases/decreases during the auction are limited to 10%

examples:

team a has 4M free and bids 3M on a player x. team b has 3M free and bids it all on player x. in order to get the player team a now has outbid team b's offer, otherwise player x signs with team b.

cap increases are counted based on year one salary
10M 9M 10M 11M - ok
10M 11M 12M 13M - ok
10M 11M 12.1M - not ok

bid format:
average salary (year one salary [+ year two salary + ...])
example
11M (10M + 11M +12M)
you can add comments bellow your bead, but please post the bid at the top of your post and separate it from your comment by at least one empty line

every player will get his thread so you can bid by posting in the thread.

Simplification of some numbers and adding numbers for hybrid draft:

65 million cap

Max contract is 20 million.

If you offer 10 to 20 million, contract must be 2-4 years long
If you offer 5 to 9.75 million, contract must be 1-3 years long
If you offer less than 5 million, contract is 1-2 years long

In this auction, for year 1 only, you can offer more than the maximum.
Example: Offer Chris Paul 3 year offer of 30 million 1st year, 20 million 2nd year, 20 million 3rd year. Average 23.3 million.

If you offer 20.25 to 30 million for year 1, contract is 3 years long
If you offer 30.25 to 40 million for year 1, contract is 2 years long
If you offer 40.25+ million, contract is 1 year long

Minimum contract is 250K. This is also the minimum increment for contract offers.

Since all these players are unrestricted free agents, are we following the rule that you can't match offers, and that the first person to offer CP the max has the upperhand, and can only be beat by going over the max?

I do hope you're planning to post all the player groups before hand. It's absolutely essential that you do so, but I haven't read anywhere that that will be the case. What's the plan there?

He posted that he will go by the Cafe Mock Draft order.

First 8:
1. Chris Paul
2. Lebron James
3. Dwayne Wade
4. Kevin Durant
5. Danny Granger
6. Kobe Bryant
7. Dirk Nowitzki
8. Amar'e Stoudamire

Each time a contract is signed, the next in order is brought out. It will get tricky later on though, after we have surpassed the number of players they draft. We could go by the last owner who signed a player (thus taking them off the board) suggests the next one.

thanx ardilla, great post

auction order can be found here:
viewtopic.php?t=59679
once we go over entire mock draft we will use bbm

also all rookies that get 3 or 4 year offers will follow rookie rfa rules (teams will hold options on their contracts afet 1 and 2 years respectively and they'll become rfa after 2 and 3 years respectively)

auction order can be found here:
viewtopic.php?t=59679
once we go over entire mock draft we will use bbm. i'll compile the list in due time

as for beating max offers, you will have to go over 20M max in 1st year to do that, but i have little doubt that at least top 7 players will go over the max and probably few more

the rules are not mine, everybody had a say. only thing that i decided is auction over snake draft and i ran into no opposition about that one either. things that were disputed by gms were put to vote. if i could have gone into season with fewer i would have, but what happens when we run into an issue later during the season?
