  5. 5. trade deadline. The team will pay 50% of the players Avg salary for all years remaining and the player will go to free agency.

Number of Buyouts per season: N DSH: 1 player DSB: 2 players DSF: 1 player Contract Buyout Eligibility: Players must be on the team's roster for a minimum of 2 FULL match-ups to be eligible for a contract buyout.

If money is owed (because of Avg Salary) the team can distribute the money over any guaranteed years remaining. If any cash is credited it will come off the player's remaining salary. s No set-off: If a player's contract is bought out by a team, and the player is signed through free agency, the player’s original team cannot set-off the difference of contracts. t Resigning: After a player has been released and a team's buyout was used, the releasing team cannot bid on the player in free agency for 21 days. d Contract Voids: If a player retires or his contract is voided by his "real" team for any reason, an owner has the option to void the player’s contract within 14 days of the official retirement/void announcement. Once a player’s contract is voided the team no longer has any rights to the player and the player is now a F/A. The releasing team cannot resign the player in free agency for 90 days. t Retired Players Clause: Each years salary that is voided will be the players avg season salary and any remaining money will be owed. The following is a list of the number of years that can be voided for a players age: a DSH & DSB D 2 29 and under - All years P Players 30-32 - 2 years P Players 33-37 - 1 year Players 38+ - 0 years

The team must use the retirement scale. If a player retires within 90 days of a team using their buyout, the buyout will be rescinded and the team must use the buyout scale if they want to void a contract. Contract Structuring C ( DSH, DSB, and DSF ) About Structuring Contracts (Optional): When a team signs a contract that is more than 1 year, team owners can structure the contract. The contract must ascend or descend. Consecutive seasons can have the same salary amount. The way a contract is structured cannot change for any reason. r 25% Rule: The Max/Min from season to season in the contract cannot be more than 25% of the Avg salary. If 25% of the Avg salary is less than $1M, $1M may be used. $ Maximum and Minimum Salary: The salary per season cannot exceed the league maximum salary. No salary can be less than the 1 year minimum in i any of the structured years. Example: 5 years/$10M per ($50M total). Salary from year to year cannot be more than a $2.5M increase or decrease (25% of $10M (Avg salary) = $2.5M). year-1:$6M, year-2:$7.5M, year-3:$10M, year-4:$12.5M, year-5:$12.5M.

O Once the playoffs begin this exception cannot be used. The TC must approve the transaction. Free Agency F ( DSH, DSB, and DSF )
  11. 11. About Free Agency: There is no limit to how many free agents a team can sign as long as there is enough money to pay the player for all future seasons. To sign a player, you must place a bid on the player you want to add in the forum. The minimum bid is based on contract length (see "Contract Length/Minimum Salary Scale)". All other teams are free to place a higher bid on that player. You can bid on free agents while your roster is full, but you must make room once the bid is won. Players must be b listed in Yahoo! to be eligible for free agency. F/A Deadline: The Trade Deadline is also the free agent deadline. At 12:00 AM EST after the deadline date, all bids will be final and awarded t to the last team to post a bid. Note: DSH has an exception for the deadline. See DSH Rosters/ Free Agent Deadline Exception. A Posting a Bid: When bidding, you must post the players name, team, and position in the "Title of the topic". Post with length of contract, total of contract, contract structure, and if you’re offering a club option. c Bidding on F/A's: When bidding on a posted f/a, teams are allowed to bid a Max of 3 times per player. The original post or illegal bids do not count as bids. c Bidding Equal Years: Minimum of $1M more Avg salary per season. : Adding Years: When adding years to a contract the players avg salary per season can drop up to (but not more than) 10%. s Reducing Years: Teams can reduce a Max of 2 years off the current bid. Teams can match the current total contract with less years or use the f following formula: When reducing the current bid by 1 year, the players avg salary per year m must increase by 60%. When reducing the current bid by 2 years, the players avg salary per year must increase by 75%. m Illegal Bids: If a bid closes and the last bid is illegal, the team with the last legal bid has the option to either take the player at the bid, or pass on the player. If the team chooses to pass, that team cannot bid on the player for 21 days and the player becomes a free agent again. p Max Contracts: Max contracts are offers of a maximum length and salary (containing no team options) to a player. If more than one team bids a Max contract, the team with the worst record is awarded the player. In the off-season and first 3 match-ups of a season, preference is determined using the previous year's standings. d Adding a Team Option: (DSH & DSB ONLY!) If a team has posted a bid with no team option, another team may bid the same contract with a team option added. When doing so the team option's buyout will increase
  12. 12. $500K each time this happens. $ Example: Team A bids 1y/$1M. Team B bids 1y/$1M w/opt. Because the team bid the same contract and only added the option, the buyout will be $1M (The initial $500k plus an additional $500k). If Team A bids 2y/ $1M per and Team B bids again with 2y/$1M per w/option, the buyout will be $1.5M (The initial $500k plus an additional $1M for matching the contract twice with team options added). c Winning a Bid: In order to win a bid a team must remain the highest bidder for 24 hours. Once a bid is won the team is responsible for that player’s contract (No exception). Teams can wait up to 72 hours if needed after a bid is won to make room for the player.

Multiple Claims: If more than one team claims a player, the team with the worst record at that time will get preference. In the off-season and first 3 weeks of the season, preference is determined using the previous year's standings. y Player is NOT Claimed: If a player is not claimed after 48 hours, owners can pull the player back off waivers or release the player.
  13. 13. Trade/Waiver Rule: If a team trades a player and the player is subsequently waived by the new team, the player's past team will not be permitted to sign the player to a new contract (or claim him off of waivers) until at least 21 days have passed following the date the trade was made (or 14 days for trades that occur during the off-season). Outright Release Waivers Outright Release Waivers: When a player is listed on "Outright Release Waivers", the player will NOT use a roster spot. The option to rescind cannot be used, the player cannot be traded, and if not claimed within 48 hours the player is automatically released. Waivers & DFA Waivers W DSB ONLY!Waivers O W About Waivers: Any player under contract (on the 40-man roster) may be placed on waivers at any time.

The player cannot be traded during this time. If a player is put on waivers, he can be claimed by any team. Player is Claimed: If a team claims a player off waivers, his team may c choose one of the following: arrange a trade with the new team for that player within 48 hours of the c claim do nothing and allow the claiming team to assume the player's existing c contract rescind the request and keep the player on their 30-man roster for 2 full match-ups, effectively canceling the waiver m Note: If a player is claimed and the option to rescind is used, this option to t rescind may not be used again for that player in that season. c Multiple Claims: If more than one team claims a player, the team with
  14. 14. the worst record at that time will get preference.

The player must be posted on waivers by Friday to clear waivers (48 hours) on the Sunday before the fourth match-up. Teams are allowed to send 5+ players to the minors a Max of 3 times per season. Players with 5+ years experience can only be sent to AAA 1 week before the first match-up up until the trade deadline. b Trade/Waiver Rule: If a team trades a player and the player is subsequently waived by the new team, the player's past team will not be permitted to sign the player to a new contract (or claim him off of waivers) until at least 21 days have passed following the date the trade was made (or 14 days for trades that occur during the off-season). Designated for Assignment (DFA) Waivers D About DFA: A player who is designated for assignment is immediately and permanently removed from the 40-man roster and the team continues to pay his salary. This gives the team time to decide what to do with the player while freeing up a roster spot for another transaction, if needed. Once a player is designated for assignment, the team has 7 days to do one of the following things: I.post a trade II.a team can claim the player and take over the existing contract III.outright release Note: if a player clears DFA waivers he cannot be optioned to a team's AAA team. o Trading a player that is DFA: When a player has been DFA, the team has 72 hours to post a trade for the Trade Committee to approve/veto. When a player is DFA, trades will always supersede waiver claims. Waiver Claimed DFA Player: While a player is DFA, all teams can post a waiver claim. If no trade is made and a claim is posted, the claiming team will assume the player's existing contract after 72 hours. If more than one team claims a player, the team with the worst record at that time will get preference. In the off-season and first 3 weeks of the
  15. 15. season, preference is determined using the previous year's standings. s NON-Claimed DFA Player: All players that have been DFA and have not been traded or claimed by another team will be outright released. Releasing Players ( DSH, DSB, and DSF ) Releasing Waived Players: If no team claims a player from waivers the player has "cleared waivers" and the team may release him. The player's contract still continues to be included in the team's payroll. c Right to Set-Off: If a team signs a player who is still under contract (as long as the player cleared waivers and was released), the player's original team is allowed to reduce the amount of money they still owe the player by the right of set-off. The original team gets to set off the difference between the player's new salary and the player’s old salary minus a 1 t time transaction fee. Transaction Fees: T DSH: $$500k DSB: S400k DSF: $500k : DSH ONLY - 1 year/$1M: If you are releasing a player who has a 1 year contract for $1M, releasing will cost $250k.

If a team with matching rights matches on a RFA with a Max contract, that team will go to the end of the list.

Owners can only draft players that were selected in the actual NBA rookie draft. All teams are required to make their picks in b both rounds. L Lottery Draft Order: The DSH 8 non-playoff teams will be assigned with the NBA’s bottom 8 teams by matching up the records from worst to best. The lottery process determines the first three picks of the draft. The rest of the first-round draft order is in reverse order of the teams' win-loss record. D T The lottery does not determine the draft order in the second round. If a 9th-16th place NBA team wins a lottery pick 1-3, the pick will be skipped and we will start the reverse order of standing 1 pick earlier. E.g. NBA first pick to the 12th place team (we will skip), NBA second pick to the 4th from last place team (our 4th from last gets 1st), and NBA 2nd
  21. 21. from last place gets the 3rd pick(our 2nd from last gets 2nd pick), and t then we begin reverse order at 3rd from last. In the event a lottery pick is traded to another team, the record of the original team (whose pick it was before the trade) still determines eligibility for the lottery, and assignment of chances. e Trading picks: Draft picks can be traded up to 2 years ahead of the current season. Trading is permitted during the draft and all trades will be b approved by the TC. Pick Limit: The President will set an appropriate time limit for picks. If a team goes past the pick limit, the team will be given the highest drafted p player from the NBA draft.
