IMPORTANT UFA RULES UPDATE

The following has been updated in the V4 Rules Document:

UFA rights may be dealt following the conclusion of the playoffs and before the Free Agency Period, and these acquired rights may be signed using each team's 1 UFA extension, provided the extension has not already been used on another player. Due to this change the following modifications have been made as well:

For UFA's rights that are owned prior to or at the trade deadline and make it to the free agency pool, the home team will get a 10% boost in determining the winning bid (Contract length x AAV x 110% = bidding points).

For UFA's rights that are acquired after the TDL and make it to the free agency pool, the home team will get a 5% boost in determining the winning bid (Contract length x AAV x 105% = bidding points).

UFA signing trade limitations:
Based on the term offered to UFA's (for both extensions and Free Agent pickups), the player cannot be traded until a certain date as follows...
1 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the season contract applies to.
2 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until July 1 of the second season the contract applies to.
3 or more year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the second season the contract applies to.

That wraps up all official rule modifications passed by the BOG regarding free agency. It is worth noting that the BOG is currently working on a policy to reduce the effect of "outrageous" UFA bids in relation to the market, as these contracts are crippling to future teams and dampen the long term viability of the game. Keep an eye out for a formal roll out of that policy as well as a official entry draft schedule in the near future.

Thank you.</div></div>


Hello all,

Due to some confusion we have decided to clarify the wording for this update. The tweaked ruling states:

IMPORTANT UFA RULES UPDATE

The following has been updated in the V4 Rules Document:

UFA rights may be dealt following the conclusion of the playoffs and before the Free Agency Period, and these acquired rights may be signed using each team's 1 UFA extension, provided the extension has not already been used on another player. Due to this change the following modifications have been made as well:

For UFA's rights that are owned at the trade deadline (trade deadline day and days following TDL) and make it to the free agency pool, the home team will get a 10% boost in determining the winning bid (Contract length x AAV x 110% = bidding points).

For UFA's rights that are acquired after the TDL (post TDL or in the offseason) and make it to the free agency pool, the home team will get a 5% boost in determining the winning bid (Contract length x AAV x 105% = bidding points).

*Reacquiring rights is a 5% boost, as you are acquiring rights after the TDL*

UFA signing trade limitations:
Based on the term offered to UFA's (for both extensions and Free Agent pickups), the player cannot be traded until a certain date as follows...
1 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the season contract applies to.
2 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until July 1 of the second season the contract applies to.
3 or more year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the second season the contract applies to.


In Summary: Updated the 10% and 5% boost wording and the statement in the asterisks.

Please contact us if you need any more clarification.
