First and foremost, I am happy to talk informal offers, but before any deal is considered legit and signed you will need to send me the deal in the following format.
Player Team Name Years Raises LLE/MLE/Min-sal/Bird Exception
Year 1 salary Year 2 salary Year 3 salary etc.
Please make sure that the math is right, and that you have the caproom to make the offer. I cannot check numbers for every team, that is on you. If a deal is canceled for financial reasons I will attempt to give you a chance to refigure it, but depending on the timing the player may move on to another offer.
I will take into account loyalty, play for winner, playing time, and greed when considering offers. Based on those factors each player will prefer one type of team (a contender, a starting gig, a big paycheck, etc.), a combination, or if all the factors are low or average, may not care one way or another. I will also consider the player's talent and age. Players in their prime and with a lot of talent are going to insist on getting what they want, others may just be happy to get an offer. A player coming off their rookie offer are going to be looking for their first big salary, whether greedy or not.
