CXF Fantasy NBA League 2020-21



The NBA plans on starting the regular season December 1st. The actual NBA Draft is set for Nov 18th.

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 or keeping no one.

We'll set the tentative draft date for Dec 1st. This is subject to change based on when tbe NBA announcea the start of the regular season.

I'm not expecting us to remain at 16 teams, but I'm going to try my best to fill the open slots once the keeper deadline hits. I will probably appoint keepers for the teams that become open. Essentially, if you haven't turned in keepers by the 16th, there is no guarantee you'll get your squad back. And no, you can't switch teams. You'll get whatever team is left over.

New League Year begins on Oct 1st 2020

Keeper Deadline is Oct 16th, 2020

Draft Begins on Nov 1st 2020

New Managers: ?

Link to Yahoo League:

Link to last year's thread:


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.
