I thought it was too late to sign these guys? Wasn't July 1 the deadline? Could be wrong, just what I had in my mind.
From the conversation I had with Ian prior to OSFA beginning I was under the impression we could sign 2nd rounders from the year before until OSFA was completely over. Seeing as OSFA is still going on I was under the impression we could still sign our 2nd round picks.
Hopefully, I did not misinterpret what he told me because I'd hate to lose 2 guys because OSFA dragged out longer than it was initially scheduled to, because OSFA was supposed to end July 21st according to the league schedule which is also the same date we had to sign our previous year 2nd round picks. When I asked if OSFA was going to end on July 21st like the schedule indicated Ian said it was more of a guideline and not necessarily set in stone.
Chris Mullin sorry to say you missed the boat on these guys. OSFA officially ended on Monday at midnight. All unsigned 2nd Rounders from last year's draft become free agents!
What I meant by the end of OSFA not being set in stone was that we just keep going with OSFA until it reaches a realistic end point, it took longer this year because there were more free agents to get through. Although I didn't include it when I announced it (see JR's link), and o be honest it didn't occur to me at the time, that was nevertheless the cut off date for signing 2nds.
Walt Frazier: Well done, Sir Barber!

Ian Noble: Actually that's one area where Live 06 works perfectly - you can directly set the % of shots a player takes from 3PT range.

Reggie Miller: That has been the sim engine of choice of most leagues I've been to. I believe its issue is that it isn't calibrated to the pace and three-point frequency of today's game. Unless we ramp up everyone's speed and outside shooting.

Alex English: NBA Live 06. We're stuck using something that old because the new games don't output the needed data files to get scores, stats, standings, etc.

Reggie Miller: If I may know, what's the sim engine we are using?

Ian Noble: I'm already pretty sure I know what needs to be done, I just need to run through testing so we can get the maths right to correct it

Ian Noble: fwiw sorting out Giannis/Ben Simmons/Westbrook underperformance is my number 1 task during downtime

Jerry West: Yeah, if the sim was in anyway realistic I would be D5 champ given how Joe Ingles dealt with D5 finals MVP in the playoffs

Tom Izzo: It's a reflection of poor sim mechanics from a game that's 15 years old

Jerry West: Is that Joe Ingles music?

Tom Izzo: Imagine having the 1st overall pick and 4 starters go in the first 3 rounds and barely being over .500 and losing in the 1st round 😭😭😭
