08-30-2016, 06:57 PM
Game: Auction Snake Draft.

Duties of GMs: Keep your clubhouse updated, must send in ballots otherwise you may never be allowed to play in a future game if they are still being held.
Hard-Cap: $115,000,000 You can NEVER go over this mark.
Cut Players: Have no cap hit. Can only cut them AFTER the draft is over.
Roster Limit: Must have exactly 10 by the end of the game, you can NEVER go over.
Trade Restrictions: None, except you cannot trade cap space.
Player Salaries: http://hoopshype.com/salaries/ --- use this link for hoopshype. If a player is a free agent, we will use the previous season's salary.

Private bids for the following player:
Group 1: Lebron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant
Group 2: Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, Draymond Green, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins
Group 3: Damian Lillard, Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Paul George, Blake Griffin, Karl-Anthony Towns
Group 4: Kyle Lowry, John Wall, CJ McCullom, Gordon Hayward, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Carmelo Anthony, Paul Millsap, DeAndre Jordan

You can bid on all players in a draft group, or only selected ones if you choose. You need only send in one PM to me, any others will be ignored. You can only win two players through this Private Auction. You have to wait until the snakedraft order is set to trade them once you win a bid. You ARE able to specify instructions in your bid, that way you don't have to keep two players of the same position if you win both. This is how a bid should look like:

Valade will PM Shammy the following
Damian Lillard $35,000,000
Kyrie Irving $32,000,000
Jimmy Butler $30,000,000
Karl-Anthony Towns $32,000,000

*Note: If i win Lillard please ignore my Irving bid.

This way, if valade wins two point guards he will only be on the hook for one of them.


Lebron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant.
Team A Private Messages Shammy:
Bid on Lebron $40,000,000

Team D Private Messages Shammy
Bid on Lebron $38,000,000
Bid on Curry $32,000,000
Bid on Durant - $39,000,000

Team A wins Lebron. They now have $60,000,000 in cap space.
Team B wins Curry. They now have $66,000,000 in cap space.
Team C lost all bids. Have all cap space remaining.
Team D wins Durant. They now have $61,000,000 in cap space.

What if you win multiple bids? The GM receives the players they bid the most on without putting themselves over the cap. Can you reject after you've won a bid? No, you keep him, trade him later, or cut the player later on and allow others to have an open bid on the guy. The only way you get to reject is if you explicitly stated it in your PM if there is a scenario where you win two point guards, two centers, etc.

Total # of Rounds: Six
Round Limits: Rounds 1-3 are 3 hours. Rounds 4-6 are two hours.
Draft Clock: Runs from 10:00am-10:00pm Eastern Time.
Time Limits: 30 minutes whenever: online, within 3 picks, or in "invisible" mode, or just traded for a pick.
Round Limits: Vary between rounds (TBD)
Skipped Rules: After 30 minutes, you can make your selection at any point. If you are OTC again but already skipped, again you will be skipped but automatically at this time.

Draft Order: determined by the following:
1. Teams with zero players pick first. Whichever teams bid the most throughout the private auction (i.e. risked the most cap space) will draft ahead of teams that risked less cap space.
2. Once all of those teams have 1 player, then we will look at cap space for all 1-player teams
teams that have the most cap-space will draft ahead of teams with less cap space.
3. Once all teams have 2 players, then again the draft order is based on cap space
4. At this point the snakedraft will be set. Auction-won players can now be traded.

Teams 1-3 have 2 players
Teams 4-6 have 1 player
Teams 7-9 have 0 players

Teams 7-9 will pick ahead of teams 4-6, which will pick ahead of teams 1-3. The tiebreaker for those teams are:
Teams 7-9 all have the same amount of cap space because they have no players, so whichever team had the highest total amount of bids will pick first. Say team 7 bid only a total of $120,000,000, team 8 $130,000,000, and team 9 $150,000,000.

Team 9 picks first, then team 8, lastly team 7. Then, teams 4-9 have one player, and the order is determined by cap space. After teams 4-9 have two players, all teams 1-9 will have their draft order set by how much cap space they have. It is at this point where the 6 rounds will begin.

Part 3: Cut/Bidding Period
Free Agency: Most teams will have 8 players at this point. Meaning most teams will need to acquire 2 players through this process, but no more than three is allowed. This period starts after the draft thread is locked. Once the period is open, you will create a thread for that player. Abide by the following rules:

1. Players Limit: You cannot have bids on more than 3 players at a time.

2. You cannot bid on a player you previously cut.

3. Player Limit: remember, you cannot go over the 10-man limit at any point. In addition, you can only acquire 3 players through this period.

4. Cap Limit: If you only have $10,000,000 in cap space at a given time, you can only have bids out that do not go over that limit (e.g. two bids combined must be under that value).

5. The bid round is 8 hours. The first 7 hours are open to everyone. The final hour is only for GMs that want to counterbid. If there is a last 2-3 minute bid we will have a 15-minute extension for PREVIOUS BIDDING GMs only.

6. Starting Bid Limits:
A. Rookies minimum is $2,000,000
B. 2-4 year vets, the minimum is $4,000,000.
B. 5-8 year vets, the minimum is $7,000,000.
C. 9-12 year vets, the minimum is $6,000,000.
D. 13+ year vets, the minimum is $5,000,000.

7. Counter Bids must be at least $500,000.

8. If you put a bid on a player, you can NEVER bid a lower price than that amount (even if other GMs rescind, or even if you rescind and come back later - you must start at that previous price).

Bid 50% of salary.

That means you could fill out a 10 man roster by bidding only $500k on three players, allowing you to collect 3 value guys that aren't paid enough IRL and stacking a team. Additionally, who is gonna check to make sure everyone is bidding the right value? Someone might bid $11,400,000 for a player, even though his salary is actually $26,000,000 in real life. Are you gonna check initial bids for every single player?

All you have to do is make a rule that initial bids are only valid with a link to their page and it's easily verifiable and round a salary to the nearest million. 80% of the threads will have back and forth bidding anyway, basically verifying the bidding is correct (since other GMs will check to make sure the other guy's bid is valid).

Lebron James

Bid $15,500,000 (salary is $30.9 mil, rounded to $31 mil).


I'm not understanding the first part either. $500K on 3 valuable players would mean you would need someone to be a valuable player making $1 million, which will never happen since those players would easily be drafted well before the bidding process. Make it harder to get cheap players via the action and those players will practically be non-existent since there will be more desperation to draft cheap players early.

The only people left in the bidding process are the overpaid people, not the underpaid ones. In fact, I don't think we had a lot of players in the bidding process this time around that was severely underpaid.
