In regards to the penalties from this past season...

Since they were not announced or clarified prior to the season, we will be going with the following format:

Level 1 Penalty: Loss of MLE and LLE
Level 2 Penalty: Loss of 2nd Round Pick

Great work guys. One question: for salary penalties resulting in the loss of a 2nd rounder where a team has multiple 2nd rounders, which 2nd rounder is forfeited? The latest one or the earliest?

It'll be done the same way as when a 1st gets forfeited. It'll be the next 2nd rounder. In the case where a team has multiple 2nds coming up in the same year, the best 2nd rounder will be forfeited.

CBA Updated for 2019-2020 Season

TEXT CHANGES:

1.2 Hard Cap
Should a team remain above the Hard Cap at the last day of the regular season, another 1st round pick will be forfeited, following the rules above. That means any team that breaches the Hard Cap will be obliged to make following moves to get under it if the team does not want to be penalized again.
Also, the team cannot get under the Hard Cap and then, by signing a veteran minimum Free Agent, breach into it again. This would be considering getting over the Hard Cap, and would be again penalized with the loss of a 1st round draft pick.

1.3.2 Luxury Tax - Penalty Level 2
2nd round pick losses works the same way as 1st round pick forfeits described at section 1.2 (Hard Cap).

1.4 Key Financial Figures
Salary Cap - 63,700,000 (+600,000)

4.7 Minimum Raises
For contracts starting at $8,000,000 or higher, there is a requirement of a minimum of a 3% raise per year.

4.13 Illegal Signings
Should any signing be ruled illegal due to the above reason or any other rule breaching, contract will also be voided and one of the penalties will be applied:
4.13.1 Free Agency Period – Penalty Level 1
Applied at the First Breach. Removal of bids / players (including voiding signed illegal contracts).
4.13.2 Free Agency Period – Penalty Level 2
Applied at the Second Breach. GM is suspended, becoming ineligible to participate during the next 3 Free Agency days (in-game count).
4.13.3 Free Agency Period – Penalty Level 3
Applied at the Third Breach. GM is suspended for the rest of the Free Agency Period. Team will also be punished by paying the entire contract voided out.

4.14 In Season Free Agency
For non-waived players, the signing will happen as first come - first serve, which means that the team that posts the singing first will be awarded the desired player no matter what.
For waived players, a 24-hour signing moratorium starting at when the player or coach was cut (The Simmer’s post serves as the clock referential) will take place in order to give all teams the opportunity to bid for the mentioned player. After that period, player is free to sign somewhere else, becoming elegible for the first come – first serve rule explained above.
Rules for coaches are the same in place for players.

5.1 General Rules
Players who have a player option cannot be traded in the window between the end of the season and start of free agency. Players with team options can be traded during this period, but the team option will then automatically be picked up.
Teams under the luxury tax before the trade may receive one (1) minimum salary player in a deal without needing to send any salary back. This only applies to one (1) minimum salary player trades, not trades where other players are involved on either side.

5.5 Ted Stepien Rule
Forfeited first round draft picks does not count for Ted Stepien Rule. Example: Team X has it’s 2017 1st round pick forfeited due to Hard Cap penalties, and it was the only one held by the mentioned team for that year. So, in order to trade their last 2018 1st round pick, Team X has to acquire any other 2017 1st round pick first or wait until the conclusion of the 2017 draft.

5.8 Rookie’s Rights Trading
Once a player gets drafted, his draft rights are eligible to be traded until last day of Free Agency. From them on, rookie's ratings will be revealed and all rookies becomes trade restricted. If a rookie's right is moved, it becomes restricted, just like any player.

It was brought to my attention that the CBA attached to the post and the CBA in the dropbox were not the same. Both the dropbox link and the attachment are the same, current CBA now.

The CBA was revised to include the following addition for clarity on roster management:

2.8 Roster Size Limits

Each team has until the end of Free Agency until they must be at a maximum of 15 players. If for any reason a team is above 15 players prior to the last Free Agency period, the newest added players to that roster will be cut and their salary will be guaranteed (this includes rookies or recent Free Agent signings).

Additionally, all teams have until the first Regular Season sim to get to a minimum of 12 players. If for any reason a team is below 12 players PRIOR to the first Regular season sim, the roster will be filled at the Sim Teams discretion and the player salaries will be guaranteed.

Due to recent events and feedback from several GMs (all of whom were not involved in the thread in question) around recent comments made on the forums, the League Conduct Policy will be revised within the CBA effective immediately:

League Conduct Policy
1. While competition is expected and promoted within the league, it is a general expectation of GMs within the league that communication between GMs will be respectful (this includes both on the forums and within PMs). If comments by GMs become personal in nature (i.e., attacking the way a GM talks, writes, their background, family, etc), that GM will be immediately subject to the following disciplinary actions (without warning):

- First Offense: Immediate 48 hour ban from the forums
- Second Offense: Permanent Removal from the League

If the offense is severe enough, the Admin team reserves the right to bypass the first offense penalty and go directly to permanent removal from the league.

Additionally, since the Admin team does not see every post within the forums - if another GM sees something that they observe as a personal attack of another GM (or themselves), please report the post using the following button (see below) on the applicable post. This will bring this to the Admin teams attention to review against this policy.

The CBA was revised to include the following:

1. Next Season Maximum Salary Raises (as specified this past offseason);

Maximum salary guidelines will align directly to the structure that is set by the NBA with players with experience in the league ranging from 0-6 years at 25% of the total salary cap, players with 7-9 years of experience at 30% of the total salary cap, and players with 10+ years of experience at 35% of the total salary cap.

Max Salary Guideline
0 - 6 years exp: $15,925,000
7 - 9 years exp: $19,110,000
10+ years exp: $22,295,000

2. Offseason Coach Hiring
- This process will change moving forward to enable teams to budget for use of the Training Staff and pricing their own coaching staff. The total staff salary is still being tested and finalized for the upcoming season, but it is currently listed as $9 million.

There will be some discussion heading closer to the offseason here to enable teams to make decisions with their current coaching staff that are currently locked into their larger contracts.

3. League Conduct Policy
- Revised to reflect recent change.
