Roster Updates Guide

Roster Updates Guide
An FAQ/Guide by Rashidi
Version 1.7
Email: [email protected] or [email protected]

NOTE: My AOL e-mail is currently inaccessible, so please e-mail only my 
hotmail account.  Thank you.

NOTE #2: There has been a growing demand for me to make my roster file 
accessible because of how time consuming it is to manually update 
rosters with (or without) this guide.  I have explored using gaming 
devices (Max Drive, Sharkport, etc) to distribute my file but it is 
just too time consuming and a pain, not to mention I’m not very 
interested in paying money so other people can use my work.  So, my 
solution is…
sending the money is I will be shipping your card back to you via UPS.  
Will I profit off of this?  Marginally, but I’m also providing a 
service, and it’s much cheaper for you than spending 25 to 30 dollars 
on those rip-off devices mentioned above.  If interested in this offer, 
e-mail me for the details.

NOTE #3: Until I otherwise note, I only have a Playstation 2.  PLEASE

IV.  2006 Free Agent Class


I. Version History

Version 1.7 (3/3/06)
Updated transactions and depth charts past the trade deadline.

Version 1.6 (1/27/06)
Updated transactions to the Ricky Davis trade.

Version 1.5 (12/29/05)
Added the 2006 Free Agent Class section.  Corrected some depth charts.

Version 1.4 (11/13/05)
Corrected some depth charts.  Refined the non-NBA league player lists.

Version 1.3 (11/1/05)
Transactions and depth rosters updated to reflect opening day rosters.

Version 1.2 (10/4/05)
Transactions up until today’s Eddy Curry deal were added.  I did not 
add Antonio Davis to the Knicks because he is expected to be cut and 
sent back to the Bulls.

Version 1.1 (9/29/05)
Added more of the training camp invites.

Version 1.0 (9/27/05)
Submitted the guide to get it up there.  I may not have listed every 
player in the game, but its not even training camp yet, so give it 


II. Roster changes

This section will include roster updates that are not covered in the 
default rosters (the roster cutoff date was 8/22/05), and all moves up 
until the end of the season.  I will list the team, and then the 
players who were added to that team.

If I say (NOT IN GAME, SEE CAP SECTION) next to a player it obviously 
means he is not in the game, but that I have a CAP for that player in 
my Player Rating FAQ.  If it just says (NOT IN GAME), it means I don’t 
have a CAP.

Players that retire should be reduced to 50 in all ratings, and you may 
want to consider doing the same to players that jumped to Europe.

III. Depth Charts

Here I’ll list the depth charts of the NBA teams, so you have a good 
idea of where to put them in your “Team Lineups” screen.  You may not 
realize that where a player is placed on the bench affects the rating 
of the team.  Bobby Jackson in the top bench slot affects the team’s 
rating more positively than he would if he were at the bottom of the 
bench, or on the IR.  Also, I am going to be placing players regardless 
of position.  Some players have incorrect positions in the game, and 
unfortunately, you can’t edit position.  For instance, in the game, 
Allen Iverson is technically a SG.  However in real life, Iverson is 
going to be starting at PG.  I will also include players that are not 
in the game, to make it as complete as possible.  You can always create 
the missing players, or VC might add them via a roster update (they did 
it in 2k3 and 2k5, but not in 2k4).
