In the league the draft will be based on an adjusted wins formula. The formula is designed to hurt tanking while rewarding those who reach and exceed their expected win total. That said, the formula is not extreme to the point that teams that vastly overachieve will be picking ahead of teams that do not. What it does is hurt those teams that truly tank.

Here is the deal. Each team gets expected wins (EW) based on their salary relative to the league average. EW for a team that is exactly league average is 81 wins. If you have a salary that is lower than league average, you are expected to win fewer games, and if you have higher than league average you are expected to win more.

To derive adjusted wins, you take the average of your actual and expected wins and then +/- the standard deviation from your teams expected wins. SO adjusted wins = (Actual Wins + EW)/2 + or - SD from EW.

Teams will be ranked 1-16 based on their adjusted wins for rounds 1 and 2, and will be ranked 1-16 based on actual wins for rounds 3 - end of draft.
