    NBA Keeper League - Yahoo

    I'm looking to reboot an NBA Keeper League with the resurgence of interest in basketball after the Raptors Championship run.

    This will be a KEEPER league, not a DYNASTY league. What does that mean?

    1) There will be no prospect roster, just an NBA roster. We will never need a Google Doc to track draft picks or prospects, and all keeper selections will be made directly through Yahoo.

    2) You don't need in-depth, obsessive NBA knowledge to join! If you got basketball fever this Spring or want to pick up watching the sport again, this league is for you also.

    3) There will be a smaller number of annual keepers compared to your typical deep dynasty league. I'm thinking 6 keepers each, but I will open this up for discussion.

    4) NBA Rookies will be lumped into the annual Waiver draft along with all other unowned players.

    5) In-season waiver priority does not carry over to the following season; Waiver Draft order will be determined by a weight draft lottery based on standings.

    Roster Positions

    PG, G, SG, SF, F, PF, C, UTIL, BN, BN, BN, BN, IL, IL, IL

    Scoring will be Head-to-Head and will use the following stats:

    - Points
    - Rebounds
    - Assists
    - Steals
    - Blocks
    - Assist-to-TO Ratio
    - FG%
    - 3PT%
    - FT%

    About draft order for next year. The bottom 6 (non-playoff) teams will all be in the lottery with equal odds. Picks 7-12 will be in reverse order of final playoff standings (ie champion will pick 12th). This will not be a snake draft and pick order is in effect each round. Picks are not tradable.

    Why does Yahoo want to share my data with NBA.com?

    So Yahoo knows which merch to target your advertising with when you pop Zion 1st overall.

    Would he be a good 1st overall choice? I have no idea. Or is it still Lebron?

    You could make an argument for Giannis, Harden, Anthony Davis, maybe a few other dudes. Definitely not LeBron at his age.

    Davis is too injury prone, definitely Giannis or Harden, and tack on Curry to that.

    I personally wouldn't consider Steph at 1-1 in a brand new keeper league, just based on his age. However, he is poised to have a monster fantasy season with Durant gone and Klay injured for most of the year. In a redraft league, there's a strong argument for him being right there with Harden as a hyper-efficient shooter poised for incredible volume.

    Curry definitely has age + injuries to consider so I agree with you. However he's got as good a chance as anyone to be the top fantasy player for the next 1-2 seasons.

    I think I might be interested. Only thing I would say is that you have a very small lineup listed (only 8 starting slots). Most default leagues add another C and UTIL slot to make 10. Would suggest considering making it deeper

    Yeah, I agree with this, especially if we're looking at 12 - 16 managers.
