The Rules
Roster Positions PG, SG, G, SF, PF, F, C, C, Util, Util, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN
Standard max games played is 82 per position.
Stat Categories:Field Goal Percentage (FG%), Free Throw Percentage (FT%), 3-point Shots Made (3PTM), Points Scored (PTS), Total Rebounds (REB), Assists (AST), Steals (ST), Blocked Shots (BLK), Turnovers (TO)
The off-season
I. Following the end of the season or prior to the next seasons’ auction, owners may extend a “qualifying offer” to 1 of their players. This gives them the right to see the highest bid for that particular player in the upcoming draft, and then match if they wish to.
II. Following the end of the season or prior to the next seasons’ auction, owners may extend a “Sleeper Contract” to 1 of their players. This player will be kept for the next season at $1.6 mil. Sleeper contracts can only be awarded to players who were valued at $1.5m or less at auction the previous year or FA acquisitions during the season.
III. Players going into the second year of Team, Development or Sleeper contracts are removed from the draft pool, and their “cost” is subtracted from the 50mil budget before the draft.
The draft
I. Every team begins the draft with a “budget” (or salary cap) of 50 million.
II. Players will be auctioned off in groups of 6.
III. Groups will consist of players of similar fantasy value, using a “cheat list” off a pre-agreed fantasy site.
IV. Players on qualifying offers will be auctioned in their own group and independent of Free agents. Managers will make bids on all QO players in the group. A manager may match the highest bid on their player. Any player not accepted by the current manager will be won by the owner of the highest bid. Only the highest bidder is relevant. A manager cannot win more than 2 players. Any players not won are no longer QO players and will enter the next auction group with other Free Agents. Assuming the possibility a manager will win 2 players in the group, the maximum bid will be in line with your remaining budget and players to be drafted . For example, if you have 10 players left to draft and $40m budget remaining, you can make a maximum bid of $18m / player allowing the minimum $500k for the remaining 8 players..
V. If you have the highest bid for a particular player, the amount you submitted is what you’ll pay. So, if you offered 18 million for Chris Paul, and the next highest bid is 9 million, you will still pay 18m, not 9.5m or 10m (i.e. it’s not E-bay!)
VI. An owner cannot successfully bid on more than one player in any group of 6. So, even if you had the highest bid on both Cousins and Favors, if they are in the same group, you will only get one of them – specifically, the player that you bid more for.
VII. Except for the Qualifying Group, if an owner successfully bids on a player in 2 consecutive groups, he must “sit out” the next group.
VIII. The minimum bid allowed for any player is half a million.
IX. Each team will be required to draft 15 players.
X. Once the draft is completed, owners are allowed to nominate players who they wish to grant a “Team Contract”. These players will be kept for the next season at exactly the same price. Team contracts can only be awarded to players who were not contracted the previous season. Those teams finishing in the bottom half of the final standings of the previous season may allocate 3 Team Contracts, those teams in finishing in the top half may allocate 2.
XI. Once the draft is completed, owners are also allowed to nominate players who they wish to grant a “Development Contract”. These players may be kept for the next season at this seasons’ price plus 25%. All teams may allocate 4 Development Contracts.
The season
I. Standard 9-category roto scoring, free Yahoo! League.
II. Moves restricted to 20 for the season - It is the commish’s belief that leagues should be won through good drafting and trading, not by being the quickest to pounce on every available free agent.
III. Waiver wire waiting period will be 1 day.
IV. Trades will be made independent of “budget” implications – but note that Team and Development Contracts will carry over to the off-season and remain associated with players regardless of team changes or trades. If players are dropped to free agency, contracts are no longer valid. Players on Team contracts can only be dropped prior to the All-star break

deeman87 let me know about your league and told me all the info regarding the league. Im australian and have always been into afl fantasy/supercoach but wanted to try something new out this year and as a massive basketball fan i thought this would be great to try. I have no experience with BBall fantasy putting that out there so if you have others in mind to join the league with experience im more than happy to move out of the way and find something better suited for me.

Honestly mate, this format is pretty complex for a first dive into fantasy but what is most important is enthusiasm and commitment, and I'm sold that you have that. The rest you'll learn. There is no better sport for fantasy. Welcome to the League!

A big thanks to Bugs for the clear listings this year. Makes it easier for the newbies to figure out what their options are. (for me too).

Hasn't been on in a while guess we assume hes out? So we need 2 more to commence the auction right? I'll keep hunting...
He’s notoriously tardy but I’ll try an email via yahoo.

No worries. Ramp, that team of yours is my early pick for the title...

I'm not seeing our league on my yahoo?
I haven’t renewed it yet but you should be able to see it with a ‘send reminder’ along side.

No response from Badga btw so we are still at only 10 Managers

You posted in my other BF basketball league thread looking for team managers. I'm interested if a spot is still available. Have been playing fantasy b'ball on ESPN for about 8 years.

Quick poll...
Do we disband the 2 existing squads and add them to the auction, allowing all new managers an equal opportunity to start their team afresh or...
Give incoming Managers a pick of the two vacated teams then the other 2 Managers build through the Auction?

Well there's not enough teams for all the new managers right? Since we only had 10 last year. I think since we don't have enough existing teams for all the newbies we should probably let them all start from scratch to make it equal for them all unless 2 managers want to start again and a couple want existing squads.

It's an interesting situation. Could you hold a mini draft with the new managers just involving the players from those two teams initially, and then let the new managers complete their rosters through the auction.
Reason I suggest that is there could be some really nice contracts in those two teams that I think the new managers should be able to capitalise on. Also I wouldn't make the draft or the amount of picks compulsory as I don't think they should have to take on any bad contracts. Just a thought.

I'm happy to build a team from scratch through the auction if that is what the league thinks is the best option. Perhaps a bit of salary cap relief in the form of COLA by having a budget of a bit over the standard $50 million to help the new teams out a little. My hope is to be the GWS and not the Suns of this league :)
