Buyouts on Team Options [BoS Rule Talk]

Post by Admin on Wed Oct 26, 2011 6:00 pm

I've been thinking about this for a few. Finally decided to go ahead with it. Let me know if you see any flaws...

As it is now, when you buyout a player's team option, you pay $500k.

I think we can all agree that the buyout is unrealistic when it comes to higher options. You'll never hear of a $16M option being bought out for $500k, but maybe in the ballpark of $2M-$4M.

So what I'm thinking is for buyouts to be 20% of whatever the option is. $500k minimum and $4M maximum.

Anyone with an option of $2.5M or less would still be $500k.

Examples:
$5M option/buyout $1M
$10M option/buyout $2M
$15M option/buyout $3M
$20M option/buyout $4M

So as you can see it's pretty realistic using the 20%. No rounding off or anything.

All current buyouts on options would remain as is.


The option only bid that adds $500k onto the buyout will be tacked onto the 20% (it can go over $4M in this case).

So yeah, all the declining of option talks got me thinking... if there is a player with a $20M option and a team declines, no way the buyout is $500k. $4M would be much more like it...

It'll also make guys think twice about adding options (like we all do so freely) during free agency if the buyout isnt $500k which is pretty much nothing.

Let me know if you see any potential problems with this.

This should be worked into Salary Hoops too.

im down...altho current contracts gotta be grandfathered in at the 500k buyout, imo

but yea, joe nathan was just declined by minny where they're paying 2 instead of his 12.5 contract, so that fits right in line
