How does it work?
Yep. What I do know is that it advances just like the regular season so if you miss it then you just miss it.
Do you know if the time is slowed at all? If for instance the draft is a certain day, do we all have to be there during that 6 hour window, no matter what day or time?
Well alrighty then. Perhaps we should do some digging around on other forums for some answers
Sounds like you just volunteered.
Ill get to it. It is Monday afterall, and Ive got a bunch of bullshit called work to do..
I believe the draft is a live event (I think I read that somewhere) but I have no idea if thats something that can be scheduled or if the game just decides they want to do it at 3 am on a wednesday.
this has some decent info about offseason. In particular, as soon as the draft is over, FA begins.
"Ok, with that said, you can schedule the draft whenever you want. This way you can use it to slow things down and wait for them to come back from out of town which I would recommend (even though I know you guys are so excited you probably don't wanna wait lol)."
I realize that you CAN always set it for 5 minutes out from the current time. So, if you guys experience this same glitch then use that option I gave you.
In other words, if you want to TELL everyone the Rookie Draft will begin TONIGHT @ 8pm.... then what you have to do is wait till 7:55PM and go and then set the draft timer for 5 minutes out to 8pm."
this looks promising. At least it looks like we can set it up when we can all be there
I know I can google this but can someone explain briefly in laymans terms how the salary cap works in the NBA? Hard cap? Soft cap? etc
it's really confusing.
there's a hard cap in the ballpark of 55 mil but there are exemptions that can go all the way up to 90~ million for the mid level exemption, bird right players and you can also exceed the hard cap when resigning your own free agents. But it's way harder than it needs to be in my humble opinion....but one thing I do know is that if you try to sign someone and you are allowed to, then you are allowed to. If you try to sign someone and it's no beuno, the game will give you a pop up telling you why you can't sign that player.
The soft cap is set at 58.87m starting in the offseason
The Hard cap is set at 91.35m
if you are under the soft cap you can sign any FA that you can afford.
as a example my team salary currently is 38.61 for next yr so i have 20.26 to start the offseason. i can use it on my own players or wait for FA and sign others as long as it doesn't go over 58.87.
Hard cap is so you can sign your own players if you are already above the soft cap as long as you have their bird rights(player under contract for 3+ yrs)
MLE(as long as you don't go over the hard cap) is 5.76m that you can spread out or use all of the 5.76m on 1 player that each team gets every year.
BTW it looks like no trading in the offseason..
thank you jesus
This is from memory, so some of it may be off, but the offseason happens in 3 stages if I recall, and the stages are either 24 or 48 hours. If you can't be there for the draft or FA, you can set up a 'board' with the guys you want the CPU to target on your behalf in order of importance. If I recall, the first stage is re-signing your own FA's and the draft, the next stage is signing rookies and general FA and the last stage is the offseason camps. The entire thing took about 5 days in Baseline 2 I believe and there wasn't really a way to speed it up that I could tell.
Hope that helps....
I have a feeling I am going to screw myself. It really sucks the CPU decided to re-sign Jason Terry for such an outrageous contract. Offline I got him to extend for like 4 mil a year.
OA contracts are different for some reason. I got Nick Young to resign at like 5 a year in an offline, and he turned down my substantially bigger offer in the OA.
In my offline association I was trying to sign Dirk to a contract extension, but it said I was over the cap so I couldn't. Do I just have to wait until he is actually a free agent? Cause it's the Bird Rights that let you re-sign long time players when you are over the cap right?
