    Also just added Milos Teodosic to the sheet.

    Somehow I like to rethink about this adding players to the free agent list for next year. Earlier so-tex had a small issue with a player moving backwards. Even now I can drop a player, that might be interested for some to bid on. So when do we stop. In this case it is a player that was not dropped. What if some player in preseason makes a name for himself, will he be added as well? I am mainly looking for some borders of this. And I am aware that you can never sneak by a player because we have to auction him anyway.

  • SoTexSoTex Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 198

    I'm OK with adding players at the end of the auctions as long as they're deemed worthy to add.

    One thing we could do is use the "Vote Up" feature on our posts to vote whether to add a player at the end of the auctions.

    Take Teodosic for example...instead of adding him to the end of the auctions automatically, simply post his name for consideration to add at the end. Everyone who wants to add him clicks "Vote Up". Those who don't, or don't care, don't click at all. If a simple majority comes in and votes "Up", then he's added.

    And make it a 12 hour or 24 hour time limit to vote. Pretty simple, and doesn't make any more work for anyone other than posting and keeping an eye on the time limit for voting "Up".

    And the posts can be put in their own thread, so as to not confuse them for actual auctions...maybe something like "Players for Auction Consideration" or thereabouts.

    Something to consider for the future...

    Agree. And for the record, I am not against freewheeling these names. But I am wondering where we put the limit. Like I said what if a player suddenly plays great in preseason, do we just add him to the roster or not. And who decides the addition.
    I like your idea that as a league we can help decide if a player should be in the regular auction.

    I'm good with So-Tex's idea.

    That said, if my memory serves, once the scheduled auctions finish, anyone can start their own auctions (even before the start of the season). Which will happen if someone breaks out in the preseason. And will likely happen if even a few people vote yes in SoTex's idea. So I'm not sure how much difference it makes...

    I hear what you guys are saying but Lee and Teodosic should have been on the list from the start, that's why I put them there. Lee because I just screwed up and didn't see he was a free agent, and Teodosic slipped my mind until I saw he was auctioned in the roto version of the league.

    There won't be anymore additions to the sheet like this, I can assure you.

  • KiireKiire Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 180

    Mistakes are made, but I rather see the player not to be added then to add them. Llike DaRuhl says the auction will start whenever someone starts an auction anyway. Or really be free like adding players to the auction roster whenever the league or a GM thinks that the player should be on the roster. There are a few more I think should be on there instead of some that were. but that remains my personal opinion.

    This was what I expected anyways so whether they are posted on a list or not they will be on the board for auction. I can only suggest that we begin an auction within a certain time frame (say max 48 hours after the last player is put up) as these late matches have led to a much more drawn out processes than needed.

  • DVauthrinDVauthrin Member, League - Bonanza Keeper League, Commish - Salary Cap League Posts: 1,042

    We are now through with the auction schedule, so you can start nominating players on your own.

  • CapCap Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 894

    Can everyone please pick up your players in Yahoo that you've already won so we don't end up nominating someone who's not available.

  • DaRuhlDaRuhl Member, League - Heroes Keeper League, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 553

    Hi - when do we need to cut down to 16 players by? The rules say within 24 hours during the season, but don't say anything about the preseason. My memory is that we have until the season starts to cut down, but I'm not sure I'm right? Thanks!

  • DVauthrinDVauthrin Member, League - Bonanza Keeper League, Commish - Salary Cap League Posts: 1,042

    You have until the first NBA game begins

    You're welcome.

  • CapCap Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 894

    Yeah, on behalf of all of us I'd like to thank you and everyone else involved for all the time and effort you've put in to set up this league. Appreciate it! Have a good season guys, see you in the playoffs.

  • salvadorsalvador Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 106

    Yup, many thanks to those involved in the setup of the league on its nth year. How long have we been running? Anyway, Let us do our part guys and do below:

    when games start.

    Tuesday October 17 8pm ET is tip off for the first game of season (Celtics@Cavs).

  • DaRuhlDaRuhl Member, League - Heroes Keeper League, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 553

    Assume Team Options are picked up and Partial Guarantees are fully guaranteed at tip-off of first game as well.

    Looks like there are still a good few players with > 16 on roster. Hopefully they cut down in time so nobody needs to figure out what to do if they don't....

    Yes. Rookie options and team options are void once the Cavs/Celtics kicks off on Tuesday night.

    Some teams need to pick up their free agent wins, maybe have a deadline ;)

    The teams that haven't claimed players don't have the roster space on Yahoo to do so (ie they have more than 16 players still). In season they have 24 hours to claim players they win.

    I'd like to put a bid on Bobby Portis's fist...

    ...seems like that's the toughest thing Chicago has going for them... :p

  • CapCap Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 894

    Not sure if this is right or not, but I believe that any auctions that are still open as of now should have a 24 hour clock, correct?

  • CapCap Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 894

    First game of the year and I lose a key cog for the season, what luck! I guess I should apply for an injury exemption for Gordon Hayward ASAP. Let me know if/when I can gain some cap!

  • SoTexSoTex Member, League - Salary Cap League Posts: 198

    It's early, but it's being diagnosed as a broken ankle...I'm pretty sure you're getting the exemption my friend...and I feel for you brother! Just seeing the reactions from the players is hard enough.

    Good luck to you going forward!

    Your exemption is granted for Hayward, worth 1.78M.

    Any active auctions as of cavs-celtics tipoff require 48 hours for leading bids as do any auctions moving forward.
