Restricted Free Agents
Unrestricted Free Agents
Signing players: Make an offer and it will be fed into the sim, where all FA decisions will be made. If you are attempting to re-sign your own players, the process is no different - the only thing that might change is that you may have Bird rights whereas other teams do not.
The salary cap is $70 million ($95 million hard cap). If you aren't listed below as having cap space, you are only able to offer the Mid-Level Exception ($5 million).
MLE Contracts: Maximum of 5 years. 7.5% max raise. Can be split between players.
