I have no problem whatsoever. Kudos to the Admin Team for working so hard for the league.

Been needed for a while but I still think hard rules will eventually come into play.

Kyle Anderson is barely a SF with those rebounding ratings but the Spurs are asking about him at PF and even C? He's got passing, he's got handles so he's a SG really but he has size so it could maybe be stretched to SF. Should never be a PF or C.

and don't compare the league to the CSL. Any decision needs to be designed around the engine not whether the NBA runs three guard sets, etc.

I agree with bt that our league should not make decisions based on the NBA in any way shape or form. The problem with that is that the engine can't handle the new era of basketball. DDS19 probably would do that much better, especially being able to match up defenders on specific players, would allow people to play guys wherever they want and defenses would have an easy counter for it. In this engine, we need to keep it as realistic as possible.

Not targeting Willy but saw his Wiggins PG position change and with this rule, be interesting how that's handled.

44 handle and 50 pass for a PG isn't right but what if it's his only option?

There's potentially proof the Magic are worse off because of the turnovers but scoring guards are right up there with powerful tactics so is this a tactic to have that regardless of position?

Covington is basically running point on offense while Wiggins is guarding small guys and scoring a lot. Wiggins turns it over so much I do not even see him running PG as an advantage.
PG: Tyus Jones / Delon Wright / Keenan Evans
SG: Malik Monk / Briante Weber / Avery Bradley / Vlatko Cancar
SF: Al-Farouq Aminu / Dragan Bender / JaKarr Sampson
PF: Kevon Looney / Eric Mika / LeBron James
C: Karl-Anthony Towns / Justin Patton

Unlike the small players at big position, there are two obvious disadvantages to playing bigger guys at smaller positions. The game does account for that in terms of likelihood to commit turnovers and inability to stop drives. As there are real pros/cons to consider when moving a wing or a big to a guard spot, we don’t feel that that needs to be legislated against.

Point of clarification: Are position changes usually processed before TC is run or after? Reason I ask is because it has a major effect on what areas get trained up on a player

Completely agree. Just keep an eye on position changes going forward. Some sneaky GMs will try to weave around it.
