Can we get a sim? 8-)

PS: Don't worry, I'll also complain if a FA day is simmed a second early or even right on time! :P

PSS: I'm about to leave on a work trip and won't have DDS access so would like to get one more file in before having to lean on others. . .

I can't recall if it was the older engine or this one. . . or both. If I only have one roster spot left and offer two or more guys - will none of them sign because I technically only have one spot?

Want to know if I need to just pick one and hope for the best. Offering multiple in the event that FA continues the unpredictability that we love and I don't miss out on everyone.

Not the end of the world but don't want to box myself out before we even sim.

That's a really good question that I don't know the answer to unfortunately.

Sorry, didn't see this response but it seems it didn't matter. Offered Cliff and one other guy (didn't sign with anyone), Cliff signed to the one spot we had.

It will sign the first person that the game assigns to your open roster spot (I'm assuming it goes in either Player ID or Alphabetical Order to decide) and then the other person goes unsigned.

How do I know who is eligible for a qualifying offer and how much would it need to be?

Every player coming out of a 1st round draft pick rookie scale deal, I mean, every former 1st rounder reaching it's 5th year in the league (which means his 4 year deal is over) is eligible for a qualifying offer.
How much it will be depends. I'd say it's somewhere between 30 to 50% of previous salary.

Just watched the FA video. It's a cool concept.

I'm still a little confused as to how the decisions are made. Let's say 5 teams make offers to someone, does the team with the highest "interest score" from that player automatically get him, is there a slight randomizer in that score, or is there a human element?

Let's say these five teams were given 60, 60, 97, 98, and 99 out of 100 interest score (don't know if that's the scale but let's say it is)... Is the team with a 99 winning the player automatically or would the agents take the top 3 in consideration and make the decision themselves?

Human element, that’s why we are having PAs. I’m not going to pretend that I can write an algorithm advanced enough to do all the work for us.

Also, the interest rating does not take into account the contract offer.

Ah gotcha

So will there be some amount of 1-on-1 interaction with the agents?

Yes, through the forum threads. All communication will be public.

As it has always been in the past, it will be on the forums. Agents have been instructed to keep all communication public on the forum.

Do I have to say I want to keep the Bird options for LaVine and Biyombo? Or if I don't say it, is automatic that I will be able to offer the Bird like contracts?

What the $ salary number in this year (2024) mean? That they will stay with that contract? Or do I have to make an offer and they will change that number?

You don't have to say it, as that's the default option, but most people do anyway just because that way it's crystal clear what you want.

That number is set in stone, they signed a contract for a certain number of years and a certain salary, and that number is set for the duration of that contract. So if you were to sign a player this offseason to a 2 year deal at 10M per year, they would have a 10M salary set for this year (2023) and next year (2024). In the case of Khris Middleton, for example, last offseason he signed a 5 year deal. So 1 year of the deal has passed, and what you see on the contract page is the remaining 4 years of his deal spanning 2023, 2024, 2025, and 2026, at those exact salary numbers. No more, no less.

What about the numbers in LaVine and Biyombo, in theory they are free agents, so why do they show with those salaries in my team? I want to use the bird options on him to try to keep them, but I just want to know if that's the number that they are requesting, or that's the number they are signed for this year and I don't have to offer them... I don't know.

I responded to you via PM on how that works, but the long story short is, that is just the number that remains on your books until you sign them to a new deal or until another team signs them to a contract. That is called a "cap hold" and it's kind of hard to explain concisely. All you need to know is that those numbers stay on your salary sheet until those players sign new contracts, or if you decide to renounce them they'll go away, like in the case of Isaiah Thomas and Langston Galloway. You can sign them to higher dollar amounts, to lower dollar amounts, that number is not a binding number in any way and it is not related to what amount of money the player wants.
