New World Basketball Association
By-laws and start up
Purpose- The New World Basketball Association will be made up of 16 or 20 teams
using NBA names and nicknames. The league will use the latest version
Action Sports Basketball computer game. The “Projected League” file for
the future season will be used. The reason is that rookies will be
available from the last NBA draft. This gives the league members a
futuristic look instead of just playing with last year’s stats.
- League Structure
- 16 or 20 teams will be divided into 4
divisions, 2 divisions per league.
- The initial draft will have each team
protecting 4 players from the final roster of their NBA team. The
rest of the players will be released into the draft pool.
- The initial draft order will be in order of the
salary total of the 4 players protected- low to high.
- The schedule will be 80 games (20 team league)
or 64 games for a 16 team league. Each team will play their AWAY
games. If the schedule is 64 games, players can play 90% of their
actual NBA minutes, otherwise 110%.
- Depth charts are mandatory and if a team
doesn’t supply one or doesn’t play their games during the month, they
cannot make any player moves.
The 4 division winners will make the
play-offs and be seated 1-4.

There will be a salary cap but since Action Sports
hasn’t defined the salary part of the game yet, this will be determined later.
Players picked up after the first month of the season
will have to be released at the end of the season.
Salary cap will be determined
player keeps the salary he is drafted at. This means that when you draft
a player or pick up a player on waivers, he has the salary that the game
projects for him. If he is released, his salary becomes the salary of
that season’s disk until released.
A lottery will determine the order of non-play-off teams. Win-loss
records will slot the play-off teams.
