RFA Question

Postby Warhawk » Wed Feb 14, 2007 12:06 am

Just a technical question on RFAs, if anyone knows the answer (a link would be even better).

In the case where a team makes an offer to an RFA, and their original team declines to match the offer, the original team receives compensation in the form of a draft pick/picks. So lets say a player gets the first round tender (it's 1.8 Million this year I believe), and another team makes makes an offer, and the original team doesn't match.

The question is, what if the team signing the player has multiple draft picks in the first round? Is which draft pick decided by:

a) Which pick was originally the signing team's (before trades)
b) at the signing team's discretion
c) at the original team's discretion
d) another way

Anyone know?

My guess would be the it would be the new team's original pick based on their record (not the traded pick). But that's just a guess. I've found a few sites that explain RFA but not in that kind of detail.

im pretty sure a first rd tender is a 1st and 3rd round pick. and i bet that that if the signing team doesnt want to pay that kind of price they could contact the orginal players team and try to work out something thats not this yrs 1st and 3rd.

I would assume the team's original, but I can't be sure.
