    Thanks, for clarifying, I've heard of Bird rights, we have them on some of our guys, right?
    Yes

    Also, we can sign as many 2 year minimums as we like, as long as MLSE can pay?
    Yes

    Also, we can max out and still sign our draft picks?
    Yes

    We have Bird Rights for Lowry, Vasquez, Patterson and de Colo. So we can re-sign them without cap space. We can sign any number of two year minimums we like, but the maximum roster size is 15, so probably just one or two. Yes, you can sign your draft picks, even if you are over the cap.

    Hey, there has a been quite a bit of talk about the cap, and apparently the NBA has a "soft" cap, so there are exceptions to go over, what are they exactly?
    Salary Cap Exceptions

    There are quite a few ways NBA teams can exceed the salary cap, but most of them have to do with signing free agents. Some of the most common exceptions include:
    The "Larry Bird" exception, which allows teams to exceed the cap to re-sign their own players
    The "Mid-Level" exception, allowing teams to exceed the cap in the amount of the NBA's average player salary for that year. The mid-level exception can be given to one player or split between several.
    The rookie exception, which allows teams to sign their draft picks even if doing so would exceed the salary cap.
    The minimum-salary exception, which allows teams to sign players to two-year contracts at the league minimum salary even when over the cap.
    The owners' initial proposals for a new collective bargaining agreement reportedly eliminate all of these exceptions in favor of a "hard" salary cap that cannot be exceeded for any reason. The National Hockey League employs a hard cap, as did the National Football League, until their collective bargaining agreement lapsed.

    What is the longest amount of time I can extend a rookie for?
    Rookie scale contract extensions:

    Rookie scale contracts may be extended for up to four seasons beyond the last option season in the contract, bringing the total contract length to five seasons. Teams can also select one player (called their "Designated Player") who can receive a five-year extension, bringing the total contract length to six seasons. A team can have at most one player on its roster whom they have designated for a longer extension, plus at most one player designated by another team whom they acquired in trade.

    For example, the Oklahoma City Thunder extended Russell Westbrook's rookie scale contract in 2011 (with the extension taking effect in 2012-13). They selected Westbrook as their Designated Player and extended him through 2016-17 (five new years, six total). The Thunder therefore are not allowed to designate another player for a five-year extension (Kevin Durant signed his five-year extension under the 2005 CBA) until 2017, as long as Westbrook is on their roster. However, they can trade for one (and only one) player who was designated by another team.

    It should be noted that a) you are not extending a rookie, you are extending a 4th year player who is still on their rookie scale contract and b) that said extension must occur before the player's 4th season starts, or the player heads to restricted free agency instead.

    started a topic Questions and Answers.

    Questions and Answers.

    Thought I would start something similar to Yahoo! questions.

    Often times as we are arm chair GMing, Coaching etc... we run across questions that are sometimes difficult to locate answers to.

    So I thought I'd make this a sticky thread for a few weeks...see if it catches on or not and go from there. This is more of a clarification thread then a discussion thread

    I'd appreciate it if we could stick to the following format:


    Hey what does it mean when someone is called a designated player?
    A: Designated Player
    "Each team in the NBA can nominate a rookie player to receive a "Designated Player" contract extension. A Designated Player is eligible for a 5 year contract extension, instead of being held to the standard 4 year restriction.[6] A team can only allocate a single Designated Player contract at any one time (if a team has already extended a rookie contract by using the Designated Player extension they cannot create a second Designated Player contract until the current contract expires, or until the player moves to a different team); however the CBA rules do allow teams to sign a second Designated Player from another team in addition to the one they already have. All teams are limited to having a maximum of two Designated Players contracted on their roster at any time (one which they have created from one of their own rookie contracts, and one which they have acquired from another team)."

    I will likely delete answers without a source, or if I can find a source, I will edit the post to include it
