How should contracts be determined?

  1. Contracts should be completely as they are in real life

  2. Contract lengths should be as they are in real life, but salary determined based on draft pick

  3. Salaries should be determined by draft pick, and contract length randomised

  1. Mousey AJ Son

    [MENTION=84]Jabba[/MENTION] = fkn dog
  2. Hunter AD Hunt

  3. Escath LE Schaw

    [MENTION=91615]Rikkomas[/MENTION] was up nine and a half hours ago and has been on since.
    [MENTION=34]Eggman[/MENTION] should be up.
  4. Eggman DA Eggman

    Gonna work the FAs
  5. Hunter AD Hunt

    Solid pick that.
  6. Escath LE Schaw

    Pass is a bit overrated. He has been on the decline for a number of seasons now.
  7. Mousey AJ Son

    Looking to swap Mike Dunleavy, Manu Ginobili or Kobe for a decent back up big if anyone is interested. I have $3M in cap room.
  8. Escath LE Schaw

    Spreadsheet updated with everyone's picks.
  9. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Dunleavy for Hawes? :ninja:
  10. Escath LE Schaw

    Do non-pick trades ever work out in CPL anything? :p
  11. Rikkomas QG Goldenhaus

    Shit didn't know I was up

    Let me check if there is anybody worthy left
  12. Eds E Ames

    [MENTION=2439]Escath[/MENTION] can have an extra scout (now 5).

    [MENTION=2479]Number 11[/MENTION] up, and then post-draft free agency can begin.
  13. Escath LE Schaw

  14. Rego RS Hutchinson

    What's being used to Sim this BTW?
  15. Eds E Ames

    Depends how impatient people are I guess. I've got a basis of a pretty good Excel-based sim which will make this really easy to run long-term. But it's not finished and won't be for a month or so.

    guys I need some help from the more experienced BBSim players
    How do you think I should setup my starting lineup?

    Depth Chart:
    PG: R. Jackson, M. Chalmers, C. Joseph
    SG: K. Thompson, R. Hood, C. Joseph, M. Chalmers
    SF: R. Covington, K. Thompson, AF Aminu, R. Hood
    PF: P. Millsap, R. Covington, AF Aminu, M. Teletovic, C. Capela
    C: J. Valanciunas, J. Lauvergne, C. Capela, M. Teletovic
  17. Mousey AJ Son

    Looks fairly solid. Couple of close ones for possible swaps in your depth chart, but no major issues.

    Three largest contracts not picked up

    Omer Asik, C
    2015-16: $11.0 mil
    Total Guaranteed: $44.0 mil
    Last Team: New Orleans Pelicans​
    $11.0 mil per year for four years is a huge commitment for a player who most people wouldn't be willing to pay $11.0 for in a single season. Asik is a one-dimensional player. You bring him on to harass the opposition big and to secure boards for your team. You don't bring him on when you need to score points. With over a quarter of the 2015-16 season complete the big contract seems even less justified than before. Almost all of his stats are down this season on a per-36 minute basis compared to the previous season. Keep in mind that he is already 29 years old so things probably won't be improving much.

    Outlook: Will be picked up on a one or two year contract at around $3 million a year.

    Anderson Varejao, FC
    2015-16: $9.5 mil
    Total Guaranteed: $19.0 mil
    Last Team: Cleveland Cavaliers​
    Varejao was at one time a solid if not amazing starting forward-centre. He was good because he is a physical player, but at 33 he just can't bring that same physicality. He is also very injury prone, having missed out on the majority of games in four of the last five seasons. This season his minutes have been cut significantly and his productivity has also been cut. He is now nothing more than a bench player. Bench players are not worth $9.5 million.

    Outlook: Will probably be picked up for a couple of million for one year.

    Jose Calderon, G
    2015-16: $7.5 mil
    Total Guaranteed: $15.0 mil
    Last Team: New York Knicks​
    Calderon is now 34 and that was probably the biggest reason why nobody wanted to pick him up, especially as there is an abundance of point guards who provide similar value at a much lower salary with a lot more years to grow in the league. That said, he probably still has a place in the league. His 4.7 assist per game is nowhere near the 8.9 peak he contributed for a similar number of minutes earlier in his career but that is not where his value lies in the current league. No, he can't run the offence like he used to and no, he can't defend well at all. However, he is now more of a spot-up shooter who has a 3-point shooting career average of 0.411. With the importance of threes in today's league he will still be able to contribute.

    Outlook: One year contract at around the $5 million mark.
  19. Escath LE Schaw

    Was going to do a few more players but didn't want everyone getting mad at me for revealing all of their FA targets :ninja:
  20. Jabba HJ Bots

    Dont think there is a heck of alot of game changing value, most minutes one of these free agents will see on a regular per game basis would be like 10
