PRIMARY Position Eligibility:
Before each season begins the system receives an updated report that details every player with their listed position heading into the new season. This includes rookies as well as veterans. The listed primary positions are fixed and will not change for the duration of the season.
ADDITIONAL Position Eligibility:
The League Office uses several subjective criteria to determine additional eligibility. Among those are:
How often the player touches the ball
Where the player's shots usually come from
Who else is on the floor when the player is in the game
Inuries on the team (temporary or long term injury)
Where the player is usually positioned in the offensive sets
The final decision is always left to the League Office. Any official designations made by the NBA or any other organization will be taken into consideration, but may not result in expanded eligibility for a player. Owners may write the League Office with suggestions if they feel a particular player deserves additional eligibility. Eligibility will never be taken away from a player.
