    Default RR Fantasy Hoops Keeper League - Season 4

    G'day Keeper League Owners/Managers!

    Figured now would be as good a time as any to start next seasons Thread for the Keeper League!
    Season 4 already, can you believe it?

    Would like to start out by saying Thank You to Apollo for his dedication to the Leagues in Years past.
    His presence will be missed. However, we couldn't be happier to welcome Tucas to the League as Apollo's official Incumbent owner/manager. Welcome Tucas!

    Just as a reminder, (or quick run-down for Tucas) I'm posting all of the Rules again, so they are fresh and easy to find:
    • Each returning team can use a keeper tag on as many players as they want as long as they fit within the Draft Cap ($30 Cap hit for Regular Keeper). Each player is limited to MAXIMUM TWO Keeper Tags before they must either be Franchise Tagged, Traded, or Released to the Draft Pool.

    • Those returning members will have up to a week prior to the draft to name their keepers. (This is a soft Deadline. It can/will be revised accordingly.)

    • Each team can franchise keeper tag only ONE player ($50 Cap hit for Franchise Keeper). The franchise keeper tag allows you to keep a player for an unlimited amount of time - The catch here is to use the franchise tag again in the future on a different player you must either trade your current franchise player, drop the player or relinquish your rights to the player during the off-season.

    • You can choose to not use a keeper tag or a franchise keeper tag. A player who has been keeper tagged can be franchise tagged later provided you don't have a franchise keeper on roster.


    The Draft Rules
    • Live Auction
    • $200(fantasy dollars) draft salary cap
    • $30 deduction in draft salary cap for each keeper tagged player
    • $50 deduction in draft salary cap for franchise keeper tagged player

    Season 3 Final Standing:
    (The inverse of these standings is the Official Nomination Order for Draft Day)

    1st joey_hesketh
    2nd Soft Euro
    3rd RaptorsFan4Life
    4th Matt52
    5th SKYWALKER
    6th drizz
    7th WJF
    8th Mack North

    I agree with you. New owner inherits old contracts. Which means Dwight and Lamarcus would cost $50 to keep, but there are other interesting potential $30 keeper options on that team like Bryant and maybe even Kyle Lowry, Kemba Walker and Anthony Davis.
    Would someone be able to explain this to me?
    Have a look up top Tucas. Should clear everything up for you. Can PM if you've got any questions.

    Do we have a deadline to announce keepers?

    I would be thinking a week or two before we draft?

    Oh right, the draft!

    I would humbly request as close to opening season tip off as possible. I think we did Canadian Thanksgiving last year and a) created issues with family, and b) was too early in my opinion.

    Ya, I've got 1 week before the Draft listed above, which I think is more than fair.
    Will give people plenty of time to think about theirs.

    Completely agree with all of the above. Will absolutely look have it as close to 'Week 1' as we can.
    I will be looking to set the draft date SOON, so as to initiate the conversation and make sure everyone can attend.

    Just wondering if there are any others teams that are need of owners besides the team formerly owned by Apollo?

    Beyond that are we interested in the idea of extending the invitation to new teams and expanding from a 12 team league to maybe a 14 team league?

    Why do you ask? You know someone who wants in?

    Ya, you definitely some tough choices to make. With guys like Steph Curry and Al Jefferson (even Brook Lopez) being obvious keepers, you'll have to decide if John Wall and Vucevic are worth the $30 hit as well.

    Big Al could be in for a new team next season, what will his role be, Wall could continue to make strides in shooting percentages, Vucevic puts up 12 rebounds a game??????

    My prelim Keepers are:

    Big JV $30
    DWade $50 Franchise Tag

    Now, I forget how the franchise tag works exactly, and my apologies for being lazy, but would DWade be mine for only the upcoming season? Or would I get him for any seasons after that?

    You can keep DWade as long as you want. Just have to pay for him.

    Thanks for the heads up WJF. Will put the word out.

    But to be fair, unless we get more help for Dynasty, I'm not sure its realistic to keep it going.

    2 quick things:

    1.) I am pretty sure my keepers will be James Harden and Marc Gasol.

    2.) I have 3 friends from a baseball league who are interested in joining a basketball league. I was thinking about starting our own new league, but maybe this keeper league could use a few new owners? They are not raptors republic members but I am sure that they would join just to keep up with the threats. Thoughts?

    Wish I could help out with it, but I usually do a league or two of my own. It would be sad to see the Dynasty league die after one season, and a little ironic.

    Keep me posted on what is happening, I work full time and coach a CCAA basketball team, so I don't have the extra time to help out, but I do like to have a team.

    Thanks jbml! I've updated the list above.

    To everyone who hasn't submitted keepers, DO IT NOW.

    We also have a spot open still, so let me know if you are interested in joining a fantastic league! You will be taking over for WJF; who has John Wall, Steph Curry, Brooke Lopez and Al Jefferson as decent keeper considerations.

    Also, we must start to think about when to hold the Keeper Draft. I agree with Matt that this should be set as close to Tip-off as possible, so if anyone has any serious conflicts, please let me know ASAP, so I can hammer that down.
