I'm adding this to the original rule, The original owner has 24 hours from the original claim to pull the player back or they will be lost to the 1st claim.

    We havent seen a situation like this where a player has had significant interest. I think the best case situation when an owner has multiple claims and decides to pull the player back and then trade the player to a team that gives him the best return.

    And now I read this lmao

    Read What I wrote above. I mentioned that you could pulled the player back then work out a trade with another team placing a claim which would benefit you.

    Just remember this for future dealings although it might not have even worked given what Dave W set about having to free up so much cap space.

    You have the option to pull the player off waivers and negotiate a regular trade deal for him instead if you wish. If you want to get a second rounder guaranteed, you can let the player go to the first team claiming him. Once off waivers, you would then potentially get more, but are not guaranteed to get a deal done for the player. You also could put him back on waivers after pulling him off, but then you have no choice if he is claimed again... he would have to go to the team claiming him the second time he is on waivers.

    I would gladly have given up 5 million in players who I do not use plus the second rounder for him.

    Like I said it's good we are seeing some different scenarios with this, it's still early on in this process. Gives the original owner some options when he gets multiple offers.

    All makes pretty good sense....now. My best scenario would have been to pull him back and see what I could have received in a trade especially with more then one claim. Lesson learned, and really like how you have it set up!!
