I'm going to set the keeper deadline for end of the day October 16th. If I haven't heard from you by then I am assuming you are out.

We'll set the tentative draft date for Dec 1st.

FANTASY NBA LEAGUE RULES

A. Teams can select a maximum of THREE keepers of any position.

B. Teams can choose to keep between ZERO and THREE keepers.

C. All keepers must be turned in by July 31st. The league year ends on July 31st, new league year begins August 1st.

D. Teams will lose a lottery ball in the forthcoming draft for each keeper they retain.

(Example: If a team keeps 2 players, they will have 1 lottery ball in the next draft.)

E. Draft picks can be traded at any point during the season, off-season, and during the draft. The only stipulation is the amount of draft picks on each side of the trade must balance. If the trade happens DURING the fantasy regular season, at least 1 player must be included on each side of the trade to complete the transaction.

(Example: Team A trades Chris Paul and a 5th Round Pick to Team B for J.R. Smith and a 1st Round Pick. This is a legal and draft pick balanced trade.)

F. Keepers can be kept for any duration. There is no year limit on the length that a keeper can be kept.

G. After the Fantasy Championship matchup has ended, the trade deadline period will be lifted. Trading can again commence. Managers must post in the Fantasy Basketball thread any trade and both managers involved in the trade must confirm the trade is true before it is validated.

H. During the draft, a manager has a set time limit in order to complete a draft pick. The time starts immediately following the previous selection OR the previous manager hitting their time limit. If the previous manager makes an invalid selection, the next manager is on the clock regardless of the pick not being valid. The time limit is subject to change if we are starting to run behind on time to complete the draft.

I. The winner of the Consolation playoff bracket will be awarded the prize of an extra Lottery Ball in the next draft. This is an EXTRA lottery ball that is not associated with your keepers. As a result of this prize being an additional pick, you will automatically lose whatever your last draft pick in the draft would have been after the final keeper deadline has passed. The pick that is lost can not be a draft pick you acquired from another team, it has to be yours. This prize lottery ball is tradeable.

J. If a lottery ball is traded, unless designated specifically in the trade, the ball that is traded is always the ball labeled with the lowest number that is owned by the trader. This is important because of section K.

(Example: Krankor trades a lottery ball to Steak. Krankor had three lottery balls to begin with. The ball that Steak recieves is labeled Krankor's Lottery Ball #3.)

K. The lottery ball numbers will be labeled the following way. The Consolation Prize Lottery Ball will be labeled Lottery Ball #1. All other Lottery Balls will be in order alphabetically by manager's name. If a lottery ball is traded to another manager, it will still be in it's original spot based alphabetically, it will just have a different owner.

L. When forefiting lottery balls for a keeper the following order of forefiture of lottery balls will be used... Team Owned Lottery Ball #3, Team Owned Lottery Ball #2, Team Owned Lottery Ball #1, Oldest Trade Acquired Lottery Ball, Newest Trade Acquired Lottery Ball, and finally Team Owned Consolation Prize Lottery Ball.

M. New managers have two options to start their team. New managers are placed in order of first to express interest get first shot at potential exiting teams available as outlined in option B. If a new manager joins the league after the keeper deadline, Option A will be the only option available to them to form a new team.

Option A: New managers can start fresh with a brand new team with no keepers. The managers will be entered in the early seeding draft lottery to determine draft pick seeding. They will be seeded before the team with the worst regular season record.

Option B: New managers have the option of taking over ownership of a team which has it's owner quit the league. By selecting this option, managers will have the draft seeding in which the previous owner would receive by its end of season standings placement, like all other managers. The players on that team would follow all preset keeper values that the previous manager had. Keepers will follow all previous rules and values. Essentially all that is happening to the pre-existing team is a change in ownership.

N. In the event that a manager quits the league and had future draft pick trades, the following will occur. The pick that would have been gained from the team that quit is placed at the end of the round it was traded in. This is because there is no actual placement spot from the team that no longer exists. The pick that would have been traded to the team that quit is subsequently deleted from the draft board.

Example: Team A trades it's 5th round pick to to Team B for it's 8th round pick. Team A quits. The 5th round pick is placed at the end of Round 5 and the 8th round pick is deleted.

O. Rules are subject to review and revision after the season is over and prior to the start of drafting at the discretion of the league or the commissioner.

We'll see! He really needs to make an appearance soon, like by the keeper deadline. If we end up with an odd number of teams, maybe his team will get rookies autodrafted to it, but I'm really hoping to not have to do that.

Seems like I ask this every year but what does the draft order look like at the moment?

Lottery Round so far has 8 balls, but there are still 7 teams left to report, so I'd expect 15 to 18 lottery round picks.

Then after the lottery, round 1:
1. 909
2. Harley
3. OG
4. Steak
5. AA484
6. Open Team A
7. CWM
8. Ace?
9. Flik?
10. Alfdogg
11. Linx?
12. Will Scarlet
13. Babyshoes?
14. Chosun?
15. Krankor
16. HoosierDaddy?

Round 2, inverse of Round 1.

NBA pushed back their draft date to Nov 18th.

They don't have a date for thr start of free agency or their season yet. I'm sure we'll find out in the next few weeks.

With that, we'll be pusing our draft back to at least December 1st. If they end up waiting until like Feb or March to start a season, which is possible to get fans in the stands, then we'll push it back again.

NBA set the official restart date of December 22nd.

We'll keep our draft at starting December 1st.

I'm going to start trying to fill these 3 open teams this weekend. I'll post keepers for Teams 1, 6, and 11.

Finally, I'm going to give Flik a bit longer to resurface, but more than likely he's getting replaced. I'll do that last, if I have to.

Quick Update:

Keepers have been set for the 3 open teams. All three teams are getting 2 keepers and 1 lottery pick. They are also going to receive 1 competitive balance round pick. That round happens after the Lottery Round and before Round 1.

I'm going to start trying to fill these 3 teams this weekend. The Open Team B team I'm going to offer as an NBA/MLB/NFL team. These were all Linx's teams so I'm going to try and find someone to take over all three. I'm giving Flik another week or so to resurface or his teams are going to be made available. He's had more than enough time. He can just rejoin later if it comes to that.

The Lottery Round will be decided once we have those 3 open teams filled. How it's shaping up so far:

Lottery Balls per team:
Consolation Winner Flik: 1
AA484: 2
Ace: 1
Alfdogg: 2
CWM: 1
Krankor: 1
O.G.: 1
Steak: 1
OPEN TEAM A: 1
OPEN TEAM B: 1
OPEN TEAM C: 1
If Flik needs replaced, it won't effect the number of his ball since the consolation winner ball is always Ball #1.
All other Balls are assigned alphabetical by manager username.

The regular draft round order has been set.

Welcome to the league! Feel free to branch out into other discussions in other threads too, we're all pretty knowledgeable (some far more than others re: specific sports).

Klay out for the year, again. I'm going to toss him from the keepers out of TMMB22's team. He's taking over Linx's old team. I'm just going to replace Klay with an extra lottery ball for him. No one wants to get saddled with a guy coming off two major leg injuries.

Lottery order will take place early next week Tuesday/Wednesday. Draft starts December 1st. I'm going to get the yahoo player pool set up on Saturday.

Also, I'll be looking for a replacement for Flik starting this weekend. I haven't heard anything from him in months. He can just rejoin whenever he gets back to having internet access and take over whatever open team we might have at the time.

We do draft order by regular season finish?? I get last pick lol my keepers are brutal compared to some others. I'll tank for picks I guess then. That really removes incentive to do well in the regular season. SHouldn't the winner have last pick?
 

Krankor

Draft order has always been by regular season finish for us. A team underperforming in the playoffs but dominant for months during the regular season is that team's problem. The incentive to do well during the regular season is that first week of the playoff bye. That's the goal, to win the title.

Tanking is never a good strategy in this league. We have a lottery round prior to the regular draft rounds. Consolation winner gets an extra lottery ball. There are too many reasons not to tank. Keeping 3 Keepers and Tanking this past season would get the 14th numerical pick in the draft. Not a path to success.

If you don't like your keepers don't keep them. Get in the lottery round. The lottery round hasn't been set yet, it will be on Wednesday. If you want rid of your keepers let me know.

Yeah, I didn't tank. I did however make the conscious decision that I needed Kevin Durant, so I stashed him on my team knowing that my team would probably suck ass as a result of using a high pick on someone who wouldn't play. I also had Kemba Walker and Kyle Kuzma, both of whom had their roles drastically changed from the season before that. It wasn't deliberate to have a bad team but it was a side effect of all those things and I knew it would probably happen.
