#99 | All SimCBB and SimNBA Changes Announced in the Livestream

Hi everyone,

Hope y'all are doing well. For those reading this now, this information is provided here after the Livestream broadcast on July 13th, 2023. This is in text form so that users have this information on hand.

SimCBB

  • Hartford, St. Francis Brooklyn, Guam, and Chaminade (Hawaii) are joining recruiting for 2023 and until each team's rosters have been filled.
  • In 2024, Recruiting will feature a Bonus system. Whenever a team spends greater than 0 points on a recruit, a small amount of bonus points will be applied towards that recruit. Bonus points are rewarded based on how well the team performed last season in the following events. Bonus point allotment will be adjusted based on data during the 2024 season.
    • Winning an Invitational (1)
    • Regular Season Conference Champion (1)
    • Conference Tournament Champion (1)
    • Sweet Sixteen (1)
    • Elite Eight (2)
    • Final Four (3)
    • National Championship Participant (4)
    • National Champion (5)
  • Because this was announced after the announcements revolving around Invitationals, no points will be rewarded for winning an invitational for the 2023 season.
  • Polling will take place on the interface. At the beginning of every new week, a sync for Polls will take place, presenting a top 25 ranked poll in the Schedule page.

 

All Things SimNBA

SimNBA is almost ready. There's a bit of work that needs to be completed; but for now, the following features will be available for view shortly:

  • Free Agency
  • Trade Block
  • Stats Page

The Draft Page will available sometime next week. A Dev Diary containing all Draft Page functionality will be available once the page is ready.

 

Free Agency

Free Agency Page is now available to the public, and includes a few key differences from the SimNFL page:

- G League over Practice Squad

- International Players

- Offer Logic

 

The GLeague operates very differently from the Practice Squad functionality in SimNFL. GLeague players hold onto their contract ($1m total maximum, less than 3 years in the league), and cannot play in any SimNBA games unless called up. Any team can pick up a player from the GLeague; however, if the team that owns the GLeague player picks them up through the Free Agency, the action is automatic.

International Players can be picked up in a similar manner to waiver wire players. Teams will need to pick up their existing contract and add them to their roster.

Offer Logic, which was dependent on the contract value for SimNFL, is dependent on the total value of the contract, witholding options. A team that is offering a player must meet the minimum value requirement requested by the player in every non-option year on the contract.

The International Players toggle will be available once the international rosters are filled out.

When will Free Agency Start?

After the 2023 SimNBA Draft. You may place offers up now, but there will be no sync until the draft is complete.

 

 

Trade Portal

Those who have used the trade portal in SimNFL will be familiar with this page. Simply, listing players on your trade block from the Roster page will appear here. User the dropdown to view another team's roster to offer a trade proposal.

The key difference in SimNBA is that trades proposed must be similar within 10% of both team's values. A trade cannot be proposed if there is a value-offset. Teams cannot dump assets to other teams.

To offset this, teams are able to transfer cash to the receiving team to balance out the trade. This cash will be utilized and available for the other team to help with their cap space for the current season.

 

Both the FA page and Trade Portal are now available.

Will trades that have already been completed be honored or will they be nixed if they don’t comply with the new trade rules?

They will be honored so long as they're done through the trade portal. Any trades involving conditional picks will need to be tracked manually for the time being. Only this year's picks will be on the DB; but any picks after 2023 involved in trades will be honored.

I'm not sure what you mean by the held contract for a G-League player being $1M total.  Does this mean if a player is signed to a contract worth more than 1M (which is basically everybody), they can't be assigned to the G-League? Or does that mean I essentially waive a player to the G-League, count 1M per year as his new contract, and eat any excess as dead cap?

Regarding the G-League criteria, here is what I have for the requirements:

  • Have less than or equal to 3 years of experience in the SimNBA
  • Contract must be in the length of 2 years or less
  • The salary of the current year (Year 1 Salary) of the contract must be $2 million or less
