Question......since the old method with player FAs was to send in the signing offer to a player to be approved along with the eventual trade to a new team and the players in return, how does the CPU work?
Does a team simply try and sign the player in FA like normal..and if he does sign with original team, we simply then submit a trade offer of that player alone to another team with the players/picks involved?
Just wondering how that plays out given the normal rule for a signed FA is: A player signed as a free agent in the offseason must wait a 90-day period from the start of the regular season until he can be traded
If what I assume above is correct, Does the S&T have to occur right after the signing, and posted BEFORE the next sim in FA? Or could say a player be signed, and then five FA sims later, be traded to another team under the S&T rules?
Ex. Spurs decide to resign Vern Fleming (should have 3yrs bird) to a five year deal in FA sim 5.....and then desires to trade him in FA sim 10 to New Jersey for Dikembe Mutumbo. Would this be allowed as a S&T?
Spurs: Cs - Ralph Sampson, Marcus Camby, PJ Brown; PFs - Terry Mills, Larry Nance, Gary Trent; SFs - Bruce Bowen, Aaron McKie, Willie Burton; SGs - Drazen Petrovic, Jaren Jackson, Cory Alexander; PGs - BJ Armstrong, Haywoode Workman, Chucky Atkins
