But you have to wait till the end of the signing period to lowball them successfully, right?
So the strategy, then, would be to budget 6 million for coaches. Throw the X million you save into whatever you want. Wait till the end of the signing period and lowball as many good coaches as possible, knowing that there is a pile of good coaches who never get hired because that's how the system works.
How big, then, is the risk that none of your cherry picking works, all offers get rejected, you get to the deadline and the system assigns you some talentless bottom of the barrel coaching?
It would seem based on all of this that budgeting a good amount of money for coaching is simply an effort to sign coaches early and avoid very poor coaching.
