View Full Version : NBA Mock Offseason Signups

Welcome to the NBA Mock Signups! Here are a few changes we’ve added this year to spice things up:

1. Expansion Draft: Due to lotto teams being so far behind the contenders, we’ve decided to add an expansion draft to make the lottery really valuable. Essentially, a team will only be allowed to protect 3 players on their team while the others are eligible to be selected to be put into the lottery. As a quick example: Kings protect Cousins, Gay and Darren Collison. We select Willie-Cauley-Stein to be put into the draft pool.

Every player drafted will operate under the rookie pay scale. The Lottery teams will be exactly the same as it is in real life (Sixers 1, Lakers 2, etc.)

2. We’re going to be nerfing the following teams for a fair competitive advantage for all teams:
a. Steph Curry to FA
b. LeBron will be opting out to FA with his player option.


3. We are eliminating conference and playoff voting will consist of the top 16 teams in the game.

4. We will operate with a 94mil hard-cap that you are not allowed to go over at any time without being DQ.

5. The Nets, due to lack of assets and no one really wanting to play with them anyway will be contracted.

Here are the things we need to know

1. Who are you?
2. What 4 teams would you most like to play with?
3. Would you rather do Random teams or a lottery to determine team selection?
4. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?


Cheers! Looking forward to a fun game with PSK, Ebbs and myself as running the game.

**** yea PSK, Ebbs and Jam I LOVE these new rules you guys came up with. One question: are we using an amnesty like we have in years past? Obviously makes a huge difference in team selection.

1. Who are you? Goddamn Quinn that's who
2. What 4 teams would you most like to play with? Spurs, Clips, Blazers, Pellies, but don't quote me on this I want to take some time to absorb the rule changes.
3. Would you rather do Random teams or a lottery to determine team selection? Lottery, it's so much better.
4. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Commishing PSD games.

Nope, no Amnesty. With the insane raise in cap space, and us essentially taking a player off your team, we decided an amnesty would be too much.

Oh ok, so just to be clear on the expansion draft rules: we protect three players, then you select any one player on our roster that we haven't protected and that player goes into expansion pool. He is off of our cap and roster no matter what at that point. Correct? And will the selection for the expansion pool players take place right at the beginning of the game, before we make any trades, or right before the draft itself after we've made moves?

Sorry, I've got one last cap question: are we playing with dead money or not? So will teams like Detroit (Josh Smith) and Portland (Anderson Varejao) have to carry the contracts of players released before the mock starts or will caps be based solely on players on the roster? For what it's worth, I, and I think most other people (before they know what teams they have, of course) would vote for the removal of dead money. It's just a dumb handicap to force Detroit to play with a $5.4 million handicap when no asset on their team was acquired for Smith. Same goes for Varejao (Portland got a future pick which obviously has no bearing in this game, but they're on the hook for a ton of his money) and any other teams with dead money. Since nobody has any of these teams yet I think it's important to clarify the rules now so people can be objective about it, and I think anything done to encourage flexibility and more player movement helps the game overall, so my vote would be for no dead money.

So the expansion players will enter the draft. We've always struggled to make the draft actually mean something, and we think the fix to actually make draft picks really, really valuable, especially at a rookie pay scale.

And yea, that player and their cap hit is off your roster forever (unless you draft him back). Guys who don't get drafted will enter the FA pool.

The Draft Order is exactly what it is in real life.

Not sure about the dead money thing, I don't think we've ever had that in the past.

Maybe we should open it up to voting among the GMs before teams are selected? That way everyone's impartial about it.

suggestion:

contract Brooklyn, Philly, the Lakers, and the Suns.

Put all of their players in the draft, adjust the drafting teams without said contracted teams, those not drafted enter free agency.

Have no GMs paired up, so no CO-GMed teams.

If you still cannot reach 26 teams, i'll take a team so you guys can actually play.

I think it depends. There are the inactive GMs who flat out ignore the game, and **** those guys and I agree with you, but if you're just talking about the garden variety "checks once a day and doesn't initiate talks," I'd disagree. Someone like KJ, who has been active in other games and is reliable, I'd trust them.

Nothing wrong with asking questions. Just find experienced GMs you trust early in the game to go to. If you're new people are going to try to rape you early and often, that's just a fact of the game. So it's really important to find people you trust to ask for advice while you figure out the ins and outs of the game. A lot of it is pretty intuitive, name value means more in the game than in real life, draft picks mean less, but there's certainly nuance you only pick up with time.

I meant the rules / forums / where to go for things....I did redrafts a couple times as a Co a while back but never a mock offseason...its just the formalities I'm concerned with.
