I am starting a 12-16 team salary cap fantasy basketball league; the rules are based off of Bill Simmons' article
The website for the league is up and running; nobussesallowed[dot]proboards[dot]com Currently, we have 10 members signed up.
There is no entry fee requirement, but there are some are potential costs associated for going over the salary cap and going into the luxury tax. The entire set of rules are available on the above-mentioned website.
For the TL;DR crowd:
I'm looking for 2-6 fantasy GMs to join the 10 current members, where we will be using the NBA's actual salary cap and drafting the players with their actual 13-14 salaries.
There are 10 statistical categories: points, assists, steals, blocks, offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds, FG%, FT%, 3FG%, turnovers
Each team must have a minimum of 12 players and a maximum of 15 players on its roster
However, each team will be required to start 12 players
We will use these figures: Salary Cap - $58.679M Luxury Tax Line - $71.748M
You can add/drop players without any salary consequence
THIS WILL BE A KEEPER LEAGUE.
As described in Simmons' article:
"Everyone keeps three players from the previous season, with no limit on how long you can keep them. You might become attached to the same player for three years, five years, 10 years … hell, you could potentially own him for his entire career as long as you're always paying him that season's salary. In other words, the guy who rode Derrick Rose's rookie contract these past few seasons can keep him for three times as much once Rose's five-year, $94 million extension kicks in next season (although he probably won't)."
"Instead of a 24-hour waiver process, it's a three-day waiver process that goes in order of "guy who hasn't used a waiver move for the longest goes first" and on down from there."
"Instead of 65 transactions, you only get 40 for the season."
"You can trade draft picks and waiver picks as long as the trade keeps everyone under the cap and/or tax line."
