The game is based on a statistic called EFFICENCY, created by Martin Manley and easily reported on every major NBA stats website.

This is how it works
EFF = [points + rebounds + assists + blocks + steals – turnovers – missed shot]

Where “missed shot” is the sum of every shot that is not a basket, no matter if 2-pointer, 3-pointer o free throws. So, basically:

EFF= [PTS + REB+ AST + BLK + STL – To – Missed FG – Missed FT)

The EFF is the amount of point of the player for the game.


The teams face each other every scheduled day. The schedule is made before the season start. Every championship day, the teams must deploy 10 players each from the ones under contract, divide in 4 guards, 4 forwards and 2 centers: this is called “in-field roster”.

The team result is the sum of the efficiency from the best 2 guards, the best 2 forwards and the best center or the in-field roster.
The team at home is awarded a 7-point bonus.
If there are not enough players to fulfill the terms (2 guards, 2 forwards and 1 center), every single absence is calculated as 0 point.
The team with the higher sum of efficiency is the winner of the game.


IN-FIELD ROSTER for Gameday 33:

B. Beal (EFF = 33)
E. Fournier (EFF = 18)
J. Harris (EFF = -3)
D. Brooks (EFF = 5)

J. Collins (EFF = 31)
D. Favors (EFF = 19)
E. Paschall (EFF = 0)
O. Anunoby (EFF = 11)

J. Embiid (EFF = 17)
D. Powell (EFF = 7)

Beal and Fournier are the best guards according to efficiency
Collins and Favors are the best forwards according to efficiency
Embiid is the best center according to efficiency

Total points scored by the team:
Beal (33) + Fournier (18) + Collins (31) + Favors (19) + Embiid (17)= 118

If the result pulls out a draw, there will be the overtime (OT). In the OT the best of the non-calculated players (no matter the position) will be added on the sum for each team (Sixth Man). If there’s still a draw, the second best of the non-calculated players (no matter the position) will be added and so on till a winner comes out. If there’s still a draw after involving every 10 players of the in-field roster, the away team will win the game.
If the team did not present the in-field roster, the last in-field roster presented will be automatically considered valid.

The roster is composed by all the players under a guaranteed contract. Each team can have 15 players with guaranteed contract at most. The total amount of the annual salary of every single player on the roster cannot exceed the 120 mln cap.


Each team must be composed of a minimum of 10 players, including 4 guards [GUARDIE], 4 wings [ALI] and 2 centers [CENTRI].
For using a player, the team has to sign him with a guarantee contract.

A guaranteed contract consists of an annual salary and a term, expressed on an annual basis, within which the compensation must be paid. The duration ranges from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 3 years, while there are no limits regarding the salary.

To form its own roster, each GM has an annual salary of 120 mln. This means that the sum of the annual salary of the players of their roster must never exceed the 120 mln salary cap.


Our FantaNBA League is composed by 16 franchises.
The franchises are divided in 2 Conferences of 8 franchises each.
Each Conference is divided in 2 Divisions of 4 franchises each.

As for the NBA, for The Championship there will be Regular Season (RS) and Play-Offs (PO)

At the end of the RS the first team in each Division is awarded with the Divison Championship.
The top 4 teams from each Conference will advance to the PO.
The bottom 4 teams form each Conference will enter the Lottery in the order based on their season record.

At the end of the RS, the PO will be held with the League Championship of the FantaNBA on the line.
The bracket will be composed in this way: the 1st of each Conference will face the 4th of his Conference, the 2nd of each Conference will face the 3rd of his Conference. The 4 winners of this semifinal series will face each other, still against the other team of his Conference. The winner of each Conference Finals will face the other Conference Finals winner in the FantaNBA Finals.

The PO are best of 5 series in every round: the team with the best score will play the first 2 games and possible game-5 at home (Series: 2-2-1).


Is always possible to sign or trade players, except for:
1) From trade-deadline till the end of PO
2) In the RFA phase
No exception. Every GM must avoid salary cap (no negative balance) or roster (too much or too little, for each position) problems.

A trade must be announced in the appropriate section of the League by the GM of the franchises involved. All the players, Draft picks, teams and destinations must be crystal clear.
The players involved in a trade can be used by the destination franchise starting form the game day after the confirm of every GM involved. Trades must not exceed the salary cap and the roster number limits. Salary cap and roster number limits can be temporary broken: the GM must make adjustments to settle things up in the moment of the trade announce (by picking up a FA or cutting players from the roster); if not the trade will be cancelled.
The trade is official only with the confirm of every team’s GM involved (in a 48-hour time limit).
A Commissioner can review a trade if it considered “suspected” and, if something is not clear, can ask for an official review from the Commission (formed by the 3 Commissioners). The Commission must take a decision about the trade.

3.2 - CUT
Each team can cut 3 players per season.
A player can be cut without being counted if doesn’t have an NBA contract no more.
Cuts are allowed only during the 5.1 periods (Phases & Periods).
Cut bring the plyer cut from the roster to the Cut List.
A cut player contract is still valid, partially, for the whole duration and must be considered with other contracts in the salary cap.

The impact of a cut player contract is the following:
70% in the first year;
50% in the second year;
30% in the third year.
Rounded down to the nearest integer (0, 1, 2, 3, 4) or rounded up to the nearest integer (5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

Ex. I cut Ukic 4x3 contract
In the first year his contract takes 3 from my salary cap (70% of 4 = 2.8 rounded to 3);
In the second year takes 2 from my salary cap (50% of 4 = 2);
In the third years takes 1 from my salary cap (30% of 4 = 1.2 rounded 1).

An exception is for the 1 mln contract (1xN):
1x1 takes 0;
1x2 takes 1 in the first year, 0 in the second;
1x2 takes 1 in the first year, 1 in the second, 0 in the third.
This makes important to choose wisely and it’s a solution to emulate the buyout in the real NBA contracts.

A cut player is effectively a FA and every other team can try to sign him as any other FA. If a cut player sings for another team, the old team is still forced to pay as explained before.

If a cut player is re-signed by the same team before the contract expires, the two contract will be summed up. This can avoid an agreement between two GM to reduce a player’s contract.

A cut player can not get back to his old team in the same season of the cut.

Commissioners of the League must update the Cut List of every team, year by year.


It’s allowed in the terms of 5.1 (Phases & Periods), offer guaranteed contract to free players, called Free Agent (FA).
To sign a FA it’s necessary to have less than 15 players on the roster.
Only between the RFA phase and the first RS game will be allowed to have more than 15 players under contract.
The GM has to inform about the offer in the apposite section of the League; he has to do it opening a post with this title: “FA – name of the player” (ex. FA – Tim Duncan).
Inside the post he must insert the opening offer for the auction, with salary and duration (es. 5x3).
3 years duration at most and the contract must go under these rules:
From 1 to 14 mln the contract can be x1, x2 or x3;
From 15 to 29 mln the contract can x2 or x3;
From 30 mln or more the contract can x3 only.

From the moment of the auction beginning, everyone can counter-offer following this Table rules (for both FA and RFA):
Place the same offer twice is not allwd (ex. 3x3 countered by 4x2 can’t be countered by 3x3 even if it’s possible without breaking the Table’s rules).
Offers must be placed in the same section and a GM can counter-offer how many times he desires.
Only teams with less than 15 players and with enough salary cap can place an offer or a counter.
18 hours after the last offer (hours and minutes count, not seconds), the auction is over and the player is considered signed with the team with the best offer.
Ex. If the last offer is at 03:20 am, it can be countered till 09:19 pm. At 09:20 pm the auction is considered over.

If at the end of the RS an FA auction is still open, the auction will continue till a resolution and the player cannot be employed in the PO till his sign.

Players with no NBA Contract cannot be sign, nor FA or rookie way.
A team can cancel the contract of a player, with cut and buyout count not considered only for players starting the season with an NBA contract and:
1) Retired;
2) Transferred to another league;
3) NBA Contract ended with a team’s option.
It’s possible to free those players only:
1) During the RS till the Trade Deadline;
2) During Off Season in “Release Phase”.

If the player is in the in-field roster at the release moment, another player must replace him before the next game start; if not a 0 will be counted as EFF.

The release can be made before the real release from the NBA franchise. Players sent to D-League can’t be considered released because they still have an NBA Contract.
For the players transferred to another League, GM can use the Kleiza Exception (see below) to held rights on them.

3.4.1 - KLEIZA EXCEPTION - players with valid contract that move out from NBA
If a player with a guaranteed contract (x1, x2 or x3) left the NBA to play elsewhere, the franchise who got the contract can cut him off but with a “priority claim”.

The franchise will:
1) Be 100% free from the salary;
2) Have back the slot for the roster;
3) Have the right to take back in his roster the player, when and if the player comes back to the NBA. The contract will be the same as the one he had when released. The franchise has 14 days to do it after the note by the Commission;
4) If the franchise won’t take backe the player when and if he returns to the NBA, the player will be FA. Anyone, including the former team, could present an offer and sign the player as a FA;
5) It’s forbidden to sold or trade the rights on a player;
6) If the player returns to the NBA after the deadline, the player will be eventually reinstated at the end of the season.


The FantaNBA Draft will be placed after the NBA Draft. In the FantaDraft avery franchise can select a player from the ones selected in the real NBA Draft.

The order is decided with the FantaLottery (see 4.5.1)

Folloqing the order, every GM has 24 hours to pick up a choice. If he didn’t pick up a choice, the next GM in line can make a call from the Draft.
A GM that missed his call has till the end of the following GM’s turn to make it; if not, he will automatically lose his right to pick.
With a pick at the FantaDraft, a franchise got the rights to sign a rookie with a guarantee contract.

The rookies selected will be signed after the Draft, in a separate phase (Commission kicks it off). There will be an expire date to sign the rookies or not. If there’s no sign or a clear release of the rights, the rookie will become a FA.

The contract is based on the pick number:

Pick 1st year 2nd year 3rd year 4° year
1 7x2 7x1 9x2 9x1
2 - 3 6x2 6x1 8x2 8x1
4 - 5 5x2 5x1 6x2 6x1
6 - 10 4x2 4x1 5x2 5x1
11 - 20 3x2 3x1 4x2 4x1
21 - 30 2x2 2x1 3x2 3x1
31 - 40 1x2 1x1 2x2 2x1

Third and fourth year are considered Team Option (TO) so to use the extension (or not) is a GM choice. There’ll be an expire date during the off seasons to do it. With no extension or no choice, the player will be automatically released (he becomes a FA) and all the rights relinquished.


FantaLottery is a process that allows the general managers to receive the draft picks, in the same way as NBA. The standings of the last season define the draft order (worse teams have more chances to get a good pick number). The 8 teams that have not played the playoffs are associated with the 8 NBA teams with the most number of Lotterychance (ballot box), according to their RS record. The worst team in the league will be associated with the NBA team with the most lotterychances, and so on. The results of the NBA Lottery will define the order of the draft in our league, UNTILL the eight pick. After the eight pick, the draft will follow the usual order of the standings. So, FANTALOTTERY system is valid only for the first round draft picks. For the second round on, the picks order will follow the standings records (in other words from last team to first).


Contracts Renewal phase starts at the beginning of the off-season (after last playoff game) untill RFA session. For 3rd year Rookie contracts refer to the 4.7 paragraph.

Every team can renew an UNLIMITED number of contracts BUT contract value MUST BE x0 or x1 (at the moment of the renewal). Rookie-Scale Players ARE NOT renewed this way.

How to renew

The value of the new contract is based on the PLAYER EFFICIENCY paramater of the LAST REGULAR SEASON OF NBA as shown in TAB1 (see below). The mandatory duration value of the new contracts are shown in TAB2.

SECTIONS______________________________VALUE OF THE CONTRACT
Section 1: EFF<10 --------------------------------- EFF*0.6
Section 2: 10=<EFF<14 -------------------------- EFF*0.7
Section 3: 14=<EFF<17 -------------------------- EFF*0.8
Section 4: 17=<EFF<20 -------------------------- EFF*0.9
Section 5: 20=<EFF<23 -------------------------- EFF*1.0
Section 6: 23=<EFF<26 -------------------------- EFF*1.1
Section 7: EFF=>26 ------------------------------- EFF*1.2

Contract 1-14 (million per year) -> x1 or x2 or x3 (duration)
Contract 15-29 (million per year) -> x2 or x3 (duration)
Contract >29 (million per year) -> x3 (duration)

Renewal cost for players with NO ROOKIE CONTRACT is equal to the higher value between
1) EFF*TAX (as shown in TAB1)
2) Expired contract value INCREASED by 1/3 (example: 24 millions per year becomes 32 millions per year)
Unlike rookies, new contracts for these players CANNOT BE LOWER than the previous one.

For renewal of players with less than 16 matches in the last NBA regular season, IT MUST BE CONSIDERED THE EFFICIENCY PARAMETER OF THE PREVIOUS SEASON.

For the renewal of rookie players refer to the EFFICIENCY*TAX (tab1) but new contracts for these players can be lower than the previous ones (unlike not rookie players).

Anthony Bennet has a 10x0 contract. At the end of the rookie scale, the cost of the renewal/new contract is 4x1 (or x2 or x3) because his EFFICIENCY PARAMETER (6.6) multiplied by his section of reference (Section 1, so 0.6) is 4.

K. Irving has a 12x0 contract. At the end of the rookie scale, the cost of the renewal is 20x3 because his EFFICIENCY PARAMETER (20.0) multiplied by his section of reference (Section 5 so 1.0) is 20.

For the categories of players shown below, it must be considered one section lower (for example Section 3 becomes Section 2) when renewing a contract. NOT COMBINABLE.
-Players that played less than 27 matches in the last season
-Players that played less than 55 matches in the last two season
-Players with 35 or more years (refer to stats/

Renewal Examples
L. James has a 45x0 contract. The new contract cost is 60x3 because its EFFICIENCY PARAMTER (25,3) multiplied by his section (section 6 so 1.1) is LOWER than the 1/3 of the actual contract (as shown before in not-rookie scale players).

K. Durant has a 12x0 contract. The new contract cost is 28x3 because its efficiency parameter multiplied by his section (section 6 so 1.1) is HIGHER than 1/3 of the previous contract BUT because Durant played less than 27 games in the last season, for the value of the contract MUST BE CONSIDER a lower section (section 5) and so contract value is 26x3.


The EFFICIENCY PARAMETER of the regular seasons is available at: ... /1/eff/7-1

ROUNDING takes place on the contract value NOT on EFFICIENCY. Rounding down if the decimal figure is less than 5, viceversa if its equal to or greater than 5.

To make easier the calculation there is an application called “CALCOLATORE CONTRATTI” available at: ... Rinnovi%22


For two-role player, the general manager can change the role during the renewal (and also later, in the proper session). Checkout the list of the roles on the site for the correct position (LISTA RUOLI).

Note from the commissioners: To sum up, first you have to look if the player you want to renew comes from a rookie scale contract or not. If it’s a rookie scale contract, use the tab1, that defines the value of the new contract (efficiency multiplied by tax) and find out the proper section. If the player does not come from a rookie contract, you must check the higher value between the tab1 and the contract of the player increased by 1/3. Check tab 2 for the mandatory duration of the new contracts and then find out if you can make a renewal at a lower cost, taking a look at the SECTIONS LOWERING paragraph.

3.6.1 - Sign&Trade

Players with expired contracts (x0) can be traded at the start of the off-season (after last playoff game) untill the begin of the RFA session. These players can be traded ONLY IF THE NEW TEAM RENEWS THE CONTRACT once acquired the player. In other words, the player MUST be renewed by the new team (and not by the previous team). ITS NOT ALLOWED TO DECLARE THE PLAYER AS RFA OR TRADE BEFORE THE SIGN.

3.7 – Rookie Contracts Renewal

Rookie players contracts can be renewed at the end of their second season.
The value of the new contract must follow the proper tab (rookie-scale) that shows the contract value during the years [contact the commissioners for this tab].

If the player is not renewed, he becomes FA.

Rookie players are eligible for this renewal ONLY if they’re acquired via FantaDraft.
Rookie players acquired via FA cannot benefit trom this renewal.
If a rookie is NOT renewed in this session, the general manager LOSE the chance to renew the contract as a rookie later. In this phase, a manager can renew as many rookie contract he wants.


At the start of the off-season, players at the last year of contract become Free Agent (FA). Every team can declare any FA as a RFA (restricted free agent) BUT the team MUST have less than 15 players in the roster and cannot overcome 20 players (effective contracts + RFA). There is a proper session for declaring the RFAs, that takes place BEFORE the acution for the RFAs. During this session, the transfert-market is open, players with a x0 contract can be traded and it’s possible to change the declared RFAs anytime. When this session ends, players not declared RFA becomes FA.

When the acution for the RFA takes place, every team can make offers for those players except for the team that declared the player RFA (the original team). The team that declared the player as RFA can equalize the max offer at the end of the acution (see below for detailed rules).


After declaring which players are RFA, the auctions will start. General managers interested in the players declared RFA, must have less than 15 players in their rosters. Also, in order to make an offer for the player, the manager needs to have a free slot/spot in the roster. Irregular auctions will be cancelled.

The general manager cannot make offers for his declared-RFA players.

The offers MUST follow the proper tab ( Even if the tab allows it, ITS FORBIDDEN to make the same offer (for example 3x3 with a 4x2).

After 18 hours from the last offer, the auction is closed and the player is allocated to the manager that made the best offer.

RFAs can be signed at minium salary (1 million per year) and for a maxmium of three year. Salary cap should be proper checked before make any offer.

After the allocation of the player, the original team can EQUALIZE the offer (see below) or refuse the player, within 18 hours from the end of the auction.

-Contracts from 1 million to 14 million (per year)
If the same offer is made by the original general manager, the player is allocated to the original team.
IF NO OFFERS ARE MADE FOR THE RFA AT ALL he is treated as a normal Free Agent.

-Contracts from 15 to 29 million (per year)
The offer made must be compared with the 1/3 of the original contract value. If the offer is equal or higher than the 1/3 of the contract value, the player remains in the original team. If the offer is lower or there are no offers at all, the new contract must be 1/3 of the previous one value, with the same duration of the max offer made.

• First example
1) Dampier 20x0 contract
2) offers are made
3a) The max offer is 4x3 BUT 1/3 of 20 is 6. So, in order to keep the player, the offer must be 6x3.
3b) The max offer is 13x2 (13>6). So, in order to keep the player, the offer must be 13x2 (or 13x3).
• Second example
No offers at all -> Same as 3a

-Contracts over 29 million (per year)
The offer must be compared with half of the contract value. If the offer is equal or higher, the player remains in the original team. If the offer is lower (or there are no offers at all), the player remains in the original team with a contract valure of the half of the (previous) contract.

• First example:
1) McGrady 50x0 contract
2) offers are made
3a) The max offer is 21x3 BUT ½ of 50 is 25, SO in order to keep the player, the offer must be 25x3
3b) The max offer is 35x2 (35>25). SO, in order to keep the player the offer must be 35x2 (or 35x3)
• Second example
No offers at all -> Same as 3°



TWO-ROLE PLAYERS: The GM that keeps or gains the player can choose between the two roles.

1-14 (million per year): mandatory duration of the contract -> x1, x2, x3
15-29 (million per year): mandatory duration of the contract -> x2, x3
29 (million per year): mandatory duration of the contract -> x3


Role Change Session is open from July to the start of the regular season. In this phase the general manager can change the role of the players in his roster (there’s no limitation in the number, not like the regular season) and of the player acquired via trade. There is a proper topic in the forum.

The new role/role change MUST be certified with the reference link (see in note).

During the regular season only 3 role change are allowed.
During the playoff only 2 role change are allowed.

Players cannot be the traded-back in the original team in a different role.

NOTE from the Commissioners: There is a proper topic in the forum for the role change (FINESTRA CAMBIO RUOLO). In the forum main page there is a LISTA RUOLI link ( This is a list of all the players roles. If a player in your roster has 2 roles, like Evan Fournier that is both GUARD and FOREWORD you can switch his role in the role change session. Rembember to put the reference link ( when posting in the proper topic


A long term injuried player, "out for the season" in at least 2 websites:
or called so by a team’s official communication, can be put in the INJURY LIST

This move will allow to:
- Restore a roster slot (the one of the injuried player)
- Regain of 50% of the contract.
Players can be put in the injury list from 1st Semptember of every season to the end of the regular season transfert-market.
The player CANNOT be traded and cannot be used IF he comes back earlier from the injury, untill next season.
(Example: Channing Frye 4x3, is "out for season", the general manager decide to put him in Injury List, he restores a slot and continue to pay the 50% of the contract, so 2 millions. In the next season Channing Frye will be available again in the roster with a 4x2 contract).

NOTE from the Commissioners: to put a player in the injury list, there is a proper topic in the forum. You need to post in this topic your intention to put the player in the injury list (example “I put Channing Frye in the Injury List”) THAN you have to report the reference link of one of the two websites (listed before) where the player is said to be out for the season. You can also put in the injury list players that are not out of the season but come back AFTER the regular season.
