The Rules

* · 52 Million Dollar Cap
* · No clones
* · No waiver wire
* · You must start 5 of your 7 draft picks
* · Serpentine draft. 1 player per round in rounds 1-5, 2 players in round 6.
* · No undrafted player can be paid more than 4 million dollars
* · If you have a question that is not covered in these rules, please post it and we will come to a consensus decision if needed. No one will lose their spot in the draft because their question goes unanswered.

Draft Order

The returning owners that did not make the playoffs will be in a NBA-style draft lottery. The other returning owners will then be placed behind them in order of playoff finish(with regular season record the tiebreaker). New owners will be placed behind them in order of who joined first.

Owners will now have the option to choose their draft slot. This will be done in draft order. So if the owner with the top pick chooses to draft in the 24th spot, the 2nd overall pick can choose any draft spot besides #24. This will continue until all the spots are filled.

Divisions

Divisions will NOT be random. They will be drafted by the top 4 owners from last season. The division draft will take place immediately after the player draft ends, while we wait for the league to fill.



- Also, the returning champion is tasked with doing evaluations of drafted teams prior to the next season.

Lottery

Ok....here's how I'm doing the lottery. As I said, it will be done almost just like the NBA.

Here's how the NBA has its odds(per wiki)....

  1. 250 combinations, 25.0% chance of receiving the #1 pick
  2. 199 combinations, 19.9% chance
  3. 156 combinations, 15.6% chance
  4. 119 combinations, 11.9% chance
  5. 88 combinations, 8.8% chance
  6. 63 combinations, 6.3% chance
  7. 43 combinations, 4.3% chance
  8. 28 combinations, 2.8% chance
  9. 17 combinations, 1.7% chance
  10. 11 combinations, 1.1% chance
  11. 8 combinations, 0.8% chance
  12. 7 combinations, 0.7% chance
  13. 6 combinations, 0.6% chance
  14. 5 combinations, 0.5% chance

So what I'm going to do is make #13/14 vacant and assign the 12 lottery teams the other spots based on record. The owners that dropped will also leave those numbers vacant. This year it looks like this......

banditone  - (1-250)
pennsylvania - (251 - 449)
natenoy - (450-605)
thomcat - (606 - 724)
chris_snid - out - (725 - 812)
tricky24 - (813 - 875)
seapilots - (876 - 918)
iccoachb - (919 -946)
ashamael - (947 - 963)
theyard2 - (964 - 974)
malone9975 - (975 - 982)
badja - (983 - 989)
vacant - (990 - 1000)


I'm going to use Random.Org to select a number from 1-1000. I'll keep generating a new number until it is one that isn't vacant. Just like the NBA, this is only being done for the first 3 picks. After those 3,  the order for the other lottery teams will go by record.



I hope you guys will just trust me here but if enough people have a problem with Random.Org then I can always switch it to the lottery next season. Ok here goes.....

1st # selected: 231 - banditone
2nd: 221 - taken
3rd: 757 - vacant
4th: 435 - pennsylvania
5th: 65 - taken
6th: 367 - taken
7th: 41 - taken
8th: 813 - tricky24
