I'm looking for a solid 2/3. No one on my team is untouchable except rondo.
How about giving some thought to increasing to 12 playoff teams (6 per division)16 is a big league
You add one week and four teams to the playoffs
You reward a good regular season with byes (teams 1 and 2 in both div)
and it may help in easing some tanking concerns with only 4 teams out of the playoffs
The maximum setting is 8. That's half the league. Seems fair to me.
Team won't tank because I've made it clear that we won't hesitate to drop them from the league and give their spot to someone else.
Ok, so put them in the appropriate place please (the group page). This place isn't for cap submissions and I won't be checking here ever. I'll give you a pass on this one.
Please go here and read the thread:
My apologies if this has been asked but here goes:
What happens with the 'contracts' when 2 team complete a trade?
This is what I think, correct me if wrong:
Players outgoing contracts are removed from team cap. Players coming in are assigned contracts based on available cap space with the new team.
Personally, I would prefer the way I suggested. It creates a level playing field where a team can never go over 40 unless it is signing players off waivers for 1 year and losing them the following year.
Essentially we have a hard cap (40 years) that can only be gone over by signing maximum 1 year contracts.
While the idea of making it real like the NBA is great it does not recognize they operate on dollars and we are operating on years. Even on their trades the years make no difference, it is the dollar amount. In our league the hard cap of 40 should be the guiding principal.
Just to be clear, I am down for whatever.
My issue of going over the cap is resolved.
Tucas' issue of keeping the contract is resolved.
If the trade takes you over the cap, then it can't be done.
Personally, I still like my suggestion/original thought but this works too as it addressed the biggest concern I had which is going over the cap.
I don't mind either Euro's or Matt's idea for the trade issue. But I suppose Euro's makes it similar to the real thing.
One question I have for dropping players though;
Hypothetically, let's say we have a player signed for 5 years. What happens if, in say year 1 or 2, the player is doing either terrible or has a bad injury and you don't feel he's worth keeping. If you've explored trade possibilities but your only option is to drop. Can you just release the guy and then coup those years back to sign other FA's? Or possibly allocate some years to other players already on your team?

So, you can get his contract of the books in the off-season. But it's a onetime thing; if you have this happening to another player in the future, you can't do that anymore and his contract will stay on the books untill it expires. You can always cut a player even during the season, but during the season this doesn't create caproom.Exception: Each team has a one time amnesty clause available for use. This will allow you to cut one player in the off-season without any salary cap implications.
I don't know what happens when a player retires from the nba or if his real-life nba contract expires and he doesn't get a new nba-deal. I'm thinking that's a manager's risk and the contract still counts against the cap.
