Out of Position?


Out of Position?

Not sure if anyone asked this before but is there a penalty when a player plays out of their position? Ex. PG plays SG, PF plays C?

Re: Out of Position?

I believe there is no defined numerical penalty built into the sim, as say with defensive rating in baseball. The "penalty" is in the context of the lineup, so the team as a whole would be "penalized" by, for example, playing Vince Carter at point guard with his limited ball distribution skills, even though a SG is also eligbile at PG. At least that's what I think- I could be wrong.
