    HAHAHAH... Wow I haven't really thought of that ... well I really like how we did the Draft, where the pick was assigned to a team, pre-lottery. The bottom team doesn't always win!

    I like it the way that it is. A guy is at 0 years remaining on the contract, and you have 2 choices, extend him or let him go. I agree that this keeps the FA pool fresh!

    The biggest question will be.. which one of us will be the first to start tanking for wiggins? LOL
    But what about the one extension for someone with 1 year remaining?

    I have. What do you think of this: as long as lineups are set, no problem.

    Rationale:
    1) if they waive their players, others get opportunity to pick them up and any contract remaining stays on their cap hold until it has expired - remember only 1 amnesty!
    2) if they make trades for picks, more power to the trading parties.
    3) if they tank to get a pick - ie. waive or trade good players - we just saw how shallow the free agent pool can be... although in future years I think there will be more choice as teams roll over contracts with just 2 players able to be extended. Go made with Wiggins but good luck fielding a competitive team.

    Ya I pretty much agree. I don't think it'll be too much of a problem.
    I think we've got committed managers here who realize the impact it would have on their team and their fanbase if they were to tank.

    To be honest, I like it as it is.

    Extend 2 under contract with zero years but on your roster with cap space.
    Extend 1 rookie you drafted.

    However, if we wanted to introduce a RFA or extension type system, and majority were in favour, I could get behind that. I would be in favour as long as it was just one extension per year (ie. just one player with 1 year remaining). Free agency is fun as the draft today showed! $97 for Beverly!
    I think it should stay the way it is. I spent a considerable amount of time strategizing the amount of years I would give each player, so that I wouldn't have too many great players expiring at the same time. The only option I could be convinced of is Mack North's suggestion of only re-upping 2 players, but they could have 0 or 1 year left.
    Is there any more discussion needed surrounding the amount of player adds and drops that can be done by one team in a season? I would be in favor of limiting that. Not sure if there is a rule in the NBA?

    While I wanted to encourage the discussion to be had, I'm also in favour of leaving this particular rule untouched. If you want to extent them, wait until you can offer them an extension at 0.
    If you don't have 2 guys you want to extend, then don't. But finding the gems and filling the holes in Free Agency will be one of the best parts of this League.

    As for Limiting roster adds, we have the 40 Year Cap, which does limit teams and then from there everything is 1-year deals. I didn't really like it at first, but it kinda shaped the last half of the season.
    I don't know, what do people think?

    As for Limiting roster adds, there is a limit on how many can be made during a week. If you want to limit how many can be made throughout the whole season, that's a whole other thing. I don't know about that. That's half the fun of Fantasy is keeping your eye on the Waiver Wire and FA Pool.
    True, I just don't like it when people pick up players based on the fact that they have more games that week and then drop them the very next because someone else has more games the next week. I realize these are end of bench guys, but it doesn't seem to replicate the NBA's "waiver wire" and it can be the difference in winning the week. Just my thoughts.

    JOey:

    I think waiver should be changed.

    Everyone right now should be FA and immediately add/drop.

    Anyone who is waived should go through waivers.

    I believe that is how it was last year as well.


    Your thoughts?

    Shit.

    I can't.

    I thought I could.

    Appears have to wait for 2 days to change the setting:

    Custom league commissioners can choose whether players will automatically go to waivers after the draft or if players will be immediately available as free agents.

    This setting cannot be reversed once the draft is over. All undrafted players must follow the waiver period setting in place at the time the draft concluded.
    The waiver period for custom leagues can be set anywhere from "No waivers" up to "7 days."
    If the waiver period for your custom league is set for 2 days (which is the default Public/Pro League setting), waivers will take between 48 and 72 hours. Waivers do not begin processing until the nightly update that begins shortly after midnight Pacific Time.
    If your draft takes place on a Monday at 11 a.m. PT, undrafted players will clear waivers at 11:59 p.m. PT on Wednesday. Waivers will then be processed between 4-8 hours later, at which point they will show on their new roster.

    For simplicity, why not just limit the resigns to 2 players, regardless of their years?

    Personally, I like the current rules. Adds an element of strategy (staggering you best players deals) and keeps the FA auction exciting. Let's be honest, the drafting of new players each season is usually the best part of the season, diluting that so that decisions are easier for managers isn't really a good one. Having to decide between your up and comer and your all-star vet is all part of the fun. Plus, the limitations is also a good way to stimulate the trade market. If you have a young guy breakout, then you are more willing to move a vet for something than risk losing him for nothing.

    My starters and such would be as follows:

    PG - John Wall
    SG - Kobe Bryant(*Bradley Beal will replace him due to injury)
    SF - Andre Igoudala
    PF - Andre Drummond
    C - Brook Lopez

    1st big off the bench - Andrew Bogut
    1st guard of bench - Eric Bledsoe

    Good mix of young an old IMO.

    I would rather not change the rules on the extensions.

    Actually at this point I would be hesitant to change anything. Any conversation as such should be limited to what we would do differently next season
