This league is the fantasy equivalent to the NBA with minor alterations because we are dealing with fantasy (of course). We also have our own Commissioner (our sponsor) who will will have the following duties:
- Clarify Rules
- Conduct Draft Lotteries
- Make Tough Decisions and Rulings
- Make sure there is no collusion amongst owners
- Take care of all teams info (salaries, contract, rosters etc.)
Listed below is all the important league info you will need to know:
Lottery: Lottery will be held live once the open teams are filled. The winner of the Lottery will pick 2nd overall in the entry draft. The Winner of the Consolation Bracket every year picks first.
Salaries: We will be using real-life NBA salaries.
Contracts: We won`t be using real-life contracts though. The amount of years is up to you (Maximum of 3)
Salary Cap: The salary cap, as well as the cap floor, will always be the exact same as the NBA.
Team Captains: We have a little twist. Every year, owners may name their team captain. The team captain can receive a contract of up to 10 years! The team captain may also slot in to multiple positions. Team Captains receive the following flex position based on their primary position.
Centre – Receives PF
Power Forward – Receives C and SF
Small Forward – Receives PF and SG
Shooting Guard – Receives SF and PG
Point Guard – Receives SG
Re-Signing a Player: At any time, you may choose to resign a player to the salary he currently has in the NBA. Once again, the contract years are up to you! (Maximum of 3 years, unless the player is a captain).
Teams will be allowed to resign 2 players every year.
Unrestricted Free Agency: If a player`s contract ends (and he is over the age of 25) and you choose not to resign him, the player will enter Unrestricted Free Agency. All teams will be allowed to bid on free agents during the free agency window. The maximum bid per year is 33% of the salary cap (Currently $41M). The maximum contract years is 3. Giving us a current maximum total bid of $123M.
Restricted Free Agency: If a player`s contract ends (and he is under the age of 26), and you choose not to resign him, the player will enter Restricted Free Agency. It`s the same as unrestricted free agency, except, the team that owns the player may choose to match any bid.
- The first bid must be a minimum of 1M.
- Every bid must be atleast 1M higher than the last bid.
If you decide to buyout a player, you will pay half of his salary for the remaining years on his contract.
There will be a limit of 1 buyout per team every year.
Cap hits will always be in effect. Doesn`t matter if a player retires or is placed on long term injury reserve. These types of players may still be bought out though.
Players that clear waivers will be cut from the roster.
Trades are definitely allowed and will be passed through the Commissioner to make sure there is no collusion involved. Once the Commissioner approves of the trade, the trade will become official.
2 Point Guards
2 Shooting Guards
2 Small Forwards
2 Power Forwards
Any player that is injured (has a red flag) may be placed in an injured slot. Players currently on injured reserve will still count against the cap.
Player Categories Info:
Points – 1 Point
Assists – 2 Points
Steals – 2 Points
Offensive Rebounds – 2 Points
Turnovers – Minus 2 Points
Blocks – 1 Point for every 2 Blocks accumulated by the entire team
Defensive Rebounds – 1 Point for every 3 Defensive Rebounds accumulated by the entire team
Note: These scoring categories give us a real NBA game feel. On average, teams can expect to score 110 points per matchup. Giving us almost an NBA equivalent score line such as 100-98 or 120-104.
Tiebreaker will be awarded to the team with the best bench/reserve players.
For Games 1,2,5 & 7, the higher seed will win the tiebreaker.
