What is a Transition Tag (TT)?

A Transition Tag (TT) is a tag that can be applied to an impending free agent that gives his team the right to match the highest offer for him in the upcoming Auction.

A TT player receives a starting offer from his team of whichever of the following numbers is higher:

  1. The average of the Top 10 salaries at his position for the upcoming season.
  2. 120% of his previous year’s original salary*.

*Original salary is the price that player went for in the Auction, or the final year of his rookie deal.

NOTE: Unlike with the NFT, a team will not receive compensation if they decline to match the highest offer for their TT player.
