As you can tell I'm new to this forum. I just started to do Fantasy Basketball on Yahoo this season. I am the commissioner for my private league of a few friends. I don't fully understand the waviers. I have read the information at http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/bas.../hoops-17.html
but I still don't completely understand.
I had the 1st draft pick this season. I then decided to drop S. Marbury and pick up M. James (Min). M. James was not orginally drafted by any team and was a free agent. But, I still had to wait the 2 days of waiver period. My understanding was that if a player dropped by another team that there is a waiver period but I didn't think it would apply to M. James because he was a free agent. Is M. James automatically locked up for me because I selected to "pick him up" 1st and is the waiver just pending on S. Marbury or is the waiver pending on both?
In a different example....
M buddy that drafted 3rd, decided to drop KMart and pick up A. Bynum. He submitted this during the Lakers game last night and the process took place with in a few minutes and there was no 2 day wavier period.
Was his transaction done immediately because he drafted after I did? Or, is it because A. Bynum is not a big name player that Yahoo has previously flagged as requiring a wavier? -- Am I way off here?
Any help would be appreciated.
