What's your reasoning behind that?
I understand that because the idea is to allow these guys to be stashes, we don't want them to be a heavy burden on the cap, we also need to balance this against the end of 1st round contracts so that they don't end up being better assets than 1st round picks.
[0.5, 0.5, 0.75] feels a bit light compared to 1, 1.5,  And when you consider the first 2 years cost more and are guaranteed, I'd say under this scenario pick 2.01>>1.16 which isn't really what we want.
How about [0.5, 1, 1.5] ?
The first year stays the same, but years 2 and 3 are the same as years 1 and 2 on a late first rounder. You have to pay something for the stash, but you always have that get out of jail free card in the form of the TO.
Or theres always the [0.5, 0.75, 1] which I first posted. It feels like something of a compromise now.
Since the contracts aren't guaranteed, I'd simply drop a second rounder and then pick him back up on a min .25M, .25M deal. This is one of the reasons I thought the first year should be guaranteed if we moved forward with three year deals for second rounders.
This is a cool idea, I'm just not sure how often it would be implemented to be honest. Most second rounders will probably be dropped, and as I said you could draft one, and drop him and then pick him up for much cheaper.
