Cool I agree. The ability to trade draft picks can also help with the subjectivity.
I'm going to let Dwayne Wade have his freedom this summer. If BDL parts ways with Bosh, Rascoe could take his talent to southern Florida and unite the "big 3" on one squad.
So what is the current policy on trading picks?
These are the rules I made when the league first started. They still look ok, but welcome any input. If you trade away a pick and don't get one in return or trade an uneven number of picks, you will be a draft pick/s short and will make up the player/s at the END of the draft. Trades are allowed during the draft. Draft picks can be traded, but only between the period of Off-season Trading and the Keeper submission dates, and during the draft. Draft picks must be specified exactly. Teams may trade a combination of Picks and Players and may consist of an uneven number of Picks/Players. Examples 1) Team A trades the 4th Overall pick (Pick 4, Round 1) to Team B for the 9th and 12th Overall picks (Pick 9, Round 1 and Pick 2, Round 2) 2) Team A trades the 16th Overall pick (Pick 6, Round 2) to Team B for Player X and the 38th Overall pick (Pick 8, Round 4). * In this example, if this trade occurred during the off-season trading period, Player X would automatically become a Keeper for Team A. Traded draft picks do not become Keepers. 3) Team A trades the 1st Overall pick and Player X to Team B for Player Y, Player Z and Player T. * In this example, if this trade occurred during the off-season trading period, Player X would automatically become a Keeper for Team B. Players Y, Z and T would automatically become Keepers for Team A.
Can we start making trade offers now and just not have them made official until the off-season?
No way. That's tampering. Or collusion. Or something... Sent from outerspace
Pipe down over there!
If it was legal, hypothetically speaking, I'd be willing to trade Dwayne Wade for a draft pick.
Shut it, Bill. Sent from outerspace
I'm not going to discuss the possibility of trading Kevin Love for players/picks until after the end of the season. Sent from outerspace
If you have assets to trade, you probably should have dropped them during the season like I did.
If I learned one thing from being a Pistons fan, you just don't give away assets.
Trade deadline has passed for this season. But when off-season trading opens, remember: Any players acquired in a trade in the off-season Trading period are automatically declared as keepers on the next keeper deadline. This is to help avoid situations where a team trades for a player they don’t intend to, or end up keeping, effectively giving the other team a free keeper.
Sorry, I'm still confused. I just want to know if I can start advertising and discussing a trade offer now or if I have to wait until the off-season trading period.
The rules say no trades between 26 Feb and 1 Sep. So it prob wouldn't be in the spirit of the league to start Larry Brown-ing (making under the table handshakes with others). But if you wanted to start making your feelings known on who you might keep, what you're looking for, etc (as long as its public) then there's nothing wrong with that.
OK, thanks Webz. In that case, I'll just let it be known that I'm interested in trading Dwight Howard for a draft pick. I'd have no problem keeping him, but Joakim Noah has pretty much displaced him as a keeper this year based on his stellar play. I'll wait until the offseason to entertain any offers, but I just wanted to let that stew for a little while.
I don't really have a good young keeper. I am open to all trade offers. Just thought I'd put that out there for you folks to stew on until September 1.
I can't remember, do we get 3 or 4 keepers plus a young buck? Bill, we should talk later. I have been trying to corner the market on young talent.
Not sure your guys can play any better BDL. ..
