Okay, here is how free agency is going to work.

We're going to divide up free agency by Tiers. Tier 1 will be up first, then after Tier 1 is announced we'll move onto Tier 2, and so on and so forth. Until we get to Tiers 6 and 7 which will be different. I'll explain more about that later.

Before you make your offers, make sure to read the second post to see what the maximum contract you can offer. If you're above the cap, you're limited to the mid level exception (or mini mid-level exception if you're above the luxury tax). If you're below the cap, you can spend up to but not over 58 million. So if you're total salary is 50 million, you only have 8 million in cap space before you have to sign players via veteran minimum. You don't get cap space AND the use of the MLE. If you wonder if you're offering a legal contract, run it by either myself or Finner for confirmation.

That being said, tiers will be divided up between myself and possibly three our four others to lighten the load. PM them your offer with the players name clearly labeled in the PM title box. I'm instructing them to ignore any PMs that don't follow those instructions. They'll make their decision and inform the winner that their client (say Eric Gordon) has opted to sign with them. At that point, it's your responsibility to post in the FA thread saying that you signed him and the exact contract. It should look something like this.

Quote:
The New Orleans Hornets are pleased to announce that they've re-signed Eric Gordon to a four year, 48 million deal.

2012: $12,000,000
2013: $12,000,000
2014: $12,000,000
2015: $12,000,000

And then a reasoning.


FA begins Wednesday, June 6th. More will be posted here.

*this can be split to sign more then 1 guy

MLE
$5,000,000
$5,225,000
$5,450,000
$5,675,000
Total : 4 years, $21,350,000

Teams that are over the tax ($75m in salary, cap holds count)

Mini MLE
$3,000,000
$3,135,000
$3,270,000
Total : 3 years, $9,405,000

If you were under the cap and used your cap up to sign players, you then will get to use the new midlevel which is (should be called the Heat Exemption, lol)

$2,500,000
$2,612,500
Total: $5,112,500

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also note*

For any player with less than 2 years NBA experience (Jeremy Lin & Landry Fields) the "Gilbert Arenas Rule" comes into effect.
Meaning their max salaries for the first 2 years can only be MLE. Then for their 3rd seasons (and after) are eligible to receive an increase if desired.

If I'm not mistaken this is only for teams signing them to an offer sheet. Any team with their Early Bird Rights with cap space can resign said player for whatever amount as long as they have the space to do it.

also remeber that S&T contracts follow the non bird rites offers of 4 years with 4.5% raises.

I don't believe the Wizards have amnestied anyone under the new CBA, so I'm going to start FFNBA off with a bang, and amnesty Andre Blatche PF/C.

This means his entire salary hold is gone correct?

You can't waive Jamal Crawford. He has a player option for this season.

I would assume he's referring to his cap hold.
