    If you would like to sign a player you must submit the following to me via PM:

    NBA Team:

    Signing Offer Sheet: Salary Per Year - Number of Years - Total Salary

    There is going to be 2 deadlines for teams to send in FA offers.

    Deadline 2: Monday 7PM EST.

    If you are the current team of any RFA that is bid on, then you will have 1 day to match the offer. However, real life situations will be a factor.

    If you are the current team of a RFA that is unbid on, then you can sign them for whatever you want after FA bidding is over.

    NBA Team: Cavaliers
    Is your team over the cap: Yes
    Signing Offer Sheet: $2.5 million - 1 year - $2.5 million
    Exemption Used: Bird Rights
    Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Playing time. He's always got a place on this team as he cal play defense and is one of few others who can create his shot.
    Status: Rejected - To qualify as a Bird free agent, a player must have played three seasons without being waived or changing teams as a free agent.
    09/27/07: The Cleveland Cavaliers signed free agent Devin Brown to a contract.

    Daniel Gibson Restricted FA
    NBA Team: Cavaliers
    Is your team over the cap: Yes
    Signing Offer Sheet: $3 million - 4 years - $12 million
    Exemption Used: Early Bird Rights

    NBA Team: Cavaliers
    Is your team over the cap: Yes
    Signing Offer Sheet: $3 million - 2 years - $6 million
    Exemption Used: Bird Rights

    Is your team over the cap: Yes
    Signing Offer Sheet: 1.5 million a year - 2 years - 3 million

    Status: Accepted

    Michael Finley Unrestricted FA
    NBA Team: Cavaliers
    Is your team over the cap: Yes
    Signing Offer Sheet: 3.75 million - 2 years - 7.5 million
    Exemption Used: The rest of the MLE
    Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Mike Brown has a history with the spurs and Michael Finley fits what the Cavs are looking for in a SG that can create his own shot. At his age would be hard to find a contract for longer than 2 years and at age 35 3.75 million a year is nothing to sneeze at.

He will still be part of a champiship contender, but will most likely be the starter for Mavs, allowing Stackhouse to come off the bench.

    NBA Team: Dallas Mavericks
    Is your team over the cap: Yes

    Is your team over the cap: Yes
    Signing Offer Sheet: 5 years, 6M
    Exemption Used: MLE

    Keyon Dooling
    NBA Team: Orlando Magic
    Is your team over the cap: Yes

    Patrick O'Bryant
    NBA Team: New Jersey Nets
    Is your team over the cap: Yes
    Signing Offer Sheet: 3 years, 8 mil
    Exemption Used: N/A
    Reason: He's got talent and potential and is a fairly athletic center. Diop will most likely require too steep a price tag for us. O'Bryant would compete with Boone and possibly Nenad for the C spot in our frontcourt rotation

    NBA Team: Seattle Sonics
    Is your team over the cap: N
    Signing Offer Sheet: $6,125,512 - 5 - $30,627,560
    Exemption Used: N/A
    Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Biedrins is unhappy not getting as much playing time as he expects to get, and it's no secret that Nelson likes a line-up 1-5 that can score, which Biedrins really isn't. For a pay raise, Biedrins will be allowed to go to a team that he'd be the unquestioned starting Center, still playing in an up-tempo offense that'd continue to allow him to flourish. Plus, he'd get to stay on the west coast where he's comfortable.

        Accepted

        Darrell Armstrong, PG: 1 year, MLE

        Salim Stoudamire, SG: 2 years, 1.5 mil
        He'd be a total spark plug off the bench. Great shooter we need who'll get minutes with right now, a depleted bench. Nets haven't had a 3 point shooter like this in a while. He'd be a great fit.
        Pending, Atlanta has 1 day to match

        NBA Team: New Orleans Hornets
        Is your team over the cap: Y
        Signing Offer Sheet: Ben Gordon

        Exemption Used: MLE
        Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team:
        The Hornets need a SG in the worst way to team with Chris Paul and David West.

He's young enough to run with the Hornets and can be the piece that pushes New Orleans over the top.
        Pending, Chicago has 1 day to match.

        NBA Team: New Orleans Hornets
        Is your team over the cap: Y
        Signing Offer Sheet: Josh Childress
        Salary Per Year - Number of Years - Total Salary $5,750,000, 4 years, $23,000,000
        Exemption Used: N/A
        Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Childress will see plenty of minutes with Stojakavic not getting any younger. He will be the first sub coming off the bench that would have the potential to start depending on the team the Hornets were facing. Another high scorer who can create his own shots, he would be a valuable asset to have on the court along with Chris Paul and David West.
        Pending: RFA, Atlanta has 1 day to match.

          FA is over except for teams who will match their RFA offers.

          There will be one last FA signing period after the draft to sign UDFAs and FAs.

              Accepted. Ben Gordon is now property of the New Orleans Hornets.

                  Signing Offer Sheet: $2,605,559 - 1 year
                  Exemption Used: Qualifying offer
                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: He loves the Lakers and he's an important part of the team. We'll give him the qualifying offer now, and provided he continues to improve he'll be in for a pay raise.

                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Absolutely loved by the Lakers and Lakers fans and he loves them back. He looks like a great bench player at the moment, but in case he improves into something more, the contract will be short enough for him to earn a pay raise.

                  The Sacramento Kings would like to sign Jose Calderon using the MLE.
                  This is a young team that battled in the west and was four games under .500. They improved this offseason by adding Anthony Randolph and Josh Howard, to add to the budding all star Kevin Martin and the great bench depth they have. He's the missing piece for the Kings to make a serious run at the playoffs next year and stay there for the next 5

                  Signing Offer Sheet: $6 Million - 3 Years - $18 Million Total
                  Exemption Used: MLE
                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: I'd make him my starting PF. If he signs, I'll possibly be moving Kevin Love to a Backup Center spot for now.. Antawn would be an important piece of a revamped Pistons team that still has a shot at contending.
                  Rejected: Offer too low

                  Player: Anthony Carter, PG, Unrestricted Free Agent

                  Exemption Used: Veterans Minimum

                  Exemption Used: Part of the MLE
                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Important backup player, was originally drafted by the Pistons. He'd get his minutes off the bench.

                  Exemption Used: Part of the MLE
                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: He'd be our only player with the size of an actual center. He'll get plenty of minutes off the bench and could crack the starting lineup on this team that's lacking good size.

                  Exemption Used: N/A
                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: He would immediately become the backup at SF, probably playing around 15 minutes a night and becoming a valuable scoring opportunity off the bench.

                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Could earn the backup spot at PF behind Rasheed, and knowing how Rasheed usually obtains a good amount of fouls, could probably see more minutes.

                  Exemption Used: N/A
                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Hunter accepts the only offer he got on an up and coming team. With Shaun Livingston still injured, Hunter could find decent playing time. Most of all, he feels the appreciation from the Magic for pursuing him. The Magic love his leadership and need him to cultivate the young PGs on the roster.

                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: Davis won't have to move far to find his new home. The depth is young at both SG and SF and Davis sees the opportunity to find playing time there while being on an up and coming team. With the direction the Magic have of getting tougher, Davis feels it's a great fit for his style of play.

                  Exemption Used: MLE
                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team:
                  He was here briefly but now we have a whole new coaching staff. He would get the starting job over Hughes easily and would get the opportunity to play alongside Derrick Rose, who wouldn't want that.

                  Reason why he'd sign with you versus any other team: He is the future of the Hawks and the team will continue to build around him and put pieces together for him to suceed.
                  Rejected: Josh Smith will sign with the Hawks for 1 year and enter 2009 as an UFA.

                  The Washington Wizards resign Antawn Jamison to a 6 year 72 Million dollar contract.
                  Reason: He loves playing here. Getting paid 12 Mill a year will more then sastisfy him if everything I have read is true.
