I know it seems like re-signs are starting to wind down, but since we've had a few new owners join, I am going to keep them open for the time being. As of right now, there is no set date for the draft. I am in the process of moving down to Texas to start a new job, so I'm going to be in and out for the next week or two. Once I get unpacked and settled, things will really get moving (fortunately, we'll have the FIBA championships to tide us over until training camp).
As of right now, 9 teams still have a re-sign spot available: Oklahoma City, Cleveland, Kansas City, Minnesota (2), Chicago, Houston, Boston (2), Brooklyn, Charlotte. Teams are not required to use all of their re-sign spots, however they are gone at the conclusion of the re-sign period. Unused re-sign slots do not carry over to the next 5-year window. If a team does not have a free agent they want to use a re-sign on, they are more than welcome to trade for another team's free agent.
I don't want to put any solid dates on off-season events because I'm not sure I can commit to them. I will put some dates out there, but consider these tentative until further notice:
August 16th: Re-Sign period ends August 18th: Draft begins September 22nd: Free Agency opens (this can be moved up depending on the length of the draft)
Alright guys, the Cavs are filled (everyone welcome jhinson to the league!), so we are ready to get this show on the road. Re-signs technically end tomorrow, however I am willing to extend that deadline since we only have two teams left with re-signs (Boston and Cleveland). We will still plan on the draft starting on the 18th. The Rockets have the first pick, and that can be made at midnight.
After that, free agency is still scheduled for the 22nd of September, but that can be moved up depending on how long the draft takes.
I can't even go into ESPN and update rosters, so free agency is still set for the 22nd.
Washington can make his pick any time before that.
Please, please, PLEASE make sure your rosters are updated. We have had incidents in the past where players that weren't free agents were bid on and won by other teams that the mods couldn't catch because they weren't on rosters here. Please make sure that your rosters are correct by the 16th. Mods will be checking, but let's not make their job any harder than it has to be.
Just to give you guys another update, I contacted ESPN again today. Apparently their offline draft tools are not available, and they don't have a time yet for when those will become active. Until that happens, I cannot get the free agent list. I will continue to check each day, and once they're available, I will get the results entered.
I don't know why there has been such a delay this year. Last year I was able to get results entered in mid-August, yet here we are nearing the end of September, and nothing is available. I will keep you guys posted, and hopefully they become available within the week. If we get to the middle of October (which I don't think will happen, but you never know), we may just compile a free agency list offline and open things up. It's nearly impossible to keep track of free agents that way, so I hope it doesn't come to that point.
Miege22: Had to start spending my own money on them haha

teefbe: Since Minny decided quickly on re=signs and player options are we going to move up free agency like last year or it stays on 12th?
Jul 30, 2018 16:15:50 GMT -5
Miege22: I've created a poll on the topic. Moving up FA is harder to do than the draft because it impacts everyone. If even one owner is not on board with moving it up, we'll leave it to start on the 12t

Cleveland Cavaliers: Are you a contender? Do you need another solid contributor for your squad on literally the cheapest deal possible? Well you're in luck, Allen Crabbe is your man! For the low cost of a 2019 draft pick that won't be high cuz you're a contender
Aug 1, 2018 12:45:56 GMT -5
Cleveland Cavaliers: This offer will only be available for like the next 8 hours or some shit so act now!
Aug 1, 2018 12:46:29 GMT -5
Cleveland Cavaliers: Also Dewayne Dedmon $250,000 ('20) available for a pick

HawkEye: I won 5-4 vs Colorado by only .02% of FT%
Oct 22, 2018 7:13:22 GMT -5
HawkEye: Correction, it's .2% or .002 of FT%

zephyr: does anyone know when espn is going to add position eligibility?
Nov 12, 2018 17:22:43 GMT -5
Miege22: They added PG eligibility for Bryn Forbes last week. I think they just kind of do it gradually

zephyr: great -- thanks!

zephyr: landry shamet's at 21.1 mpg for the season -- does that mean toronto has to make a decision on activating him from d-league?
Nov 27, 2018 11:30:31 GMT -5
Miege22: I think we need to go a little longer on the d-league signees, all of them, this year. 20 games isnt' a huge sample size, and a few low or no minute games can drastically impact those averages.
Nov 27, 2018 11:38:06 GMT -5
Miege22: I don't think a decision needs to be made until the last week of our season.
