You'll be able too soon enough. My suggestion is to work get to work with your coaches and associated with your teammates until then. Build that chemistry and don't be afraid to ask questions from myself, the vets and especailly the coaching staff. We have one of the best coaching staffs in this league. You're going to grow to an even better player than you was down in Oklahoma, I promise you that.

Alright man, I don't wanna take up any more of your time. Just remember what I said and keep focused on the goal at hand. And Drew? Have some fun, yeah?

Sandy, with Mueller's contract restructured can we confirm where we stand financially please. If my listing doesn't match your's I'll be sure to ask where I might've messed up.

Sir, Fort Worth will not match the contract for Rob Burgess.  You can submit the paperwork to the league office.

Sandy, can you please inform Corey Jackson's agent that we will be utilizing this year's amnesty on his or her client Mr. Jackson. We thank Mr. Jackson for his services here in San Diego and wish him luck in the future of his career.

Also tell the agent that we look forward to working with them in regards to any other of their clients.

Sir, Annalise asked me to relay the message that he has signed an offer sheet with the Crawfish for 2 years $6.5mm.  We have 36 hours to decide if we want to match or not.

Mr. Rosenhaus, hello again. Sir I'm not sure what Ryan's plans after this upcoming season but I would like for him to stay here with us here in San Diego.

As you already know we'll have us some cap room next offseason and I will like to take this time to negotiate what it may take to keep Ryan here with us. As of right now I want to offer him an extension at the beginning of next offseason to a $3MM increase in Salary per year for three years with a $500K bump in PR.

Ryan heard about what happened with Mueller so he has expressed to me that he is a little hesitant.  He would require $22 million and $5 million in PR per season, just in case you try to approach him about reducing his salary down the road.

I don't plan on asking our best player to take a cut in pay, Mr. Rosenhaus. Especially a guy of his stature that has been the cornerstone of the organization.

Fair enough. If we have the PR to make that deal down the road Mr. Rosenhaus, we will meet that require. If not I hope we can negotiate. The ask in salary will not be a problem, I assure you that.

Thanks for taking my call.

Coach, who do you believe our captain or captains should be? I was thinking Smallwood should be it or at least one of them.

PR CAMPAIGNS

Reggie Cuyler - $3MM

Fruit Of The Loom ($500K) - We’ve all seen athletes take part in underwear commercials, some funnier than others that are really received well by consumers. Currently Fruit of The Loom have been marketing their new product Everlight Underwear with a pretty funny commercial. They don’t want to just stop there. Oh no. They want to get themselves a big name to cosign their product just like Hanes have had Michael Jordan cosigning theirs for years upon years. Reggie will be featured in these new series of commercials where he won’t just play a basketball player but several other different roles that interest him in his everyday life off the court. Reggie will also be featured on some of the packaging which will all come with his signature along with him. Just to sweeten the deal, Fruit of The Looms will be having a contest for buyers to earn a chance to send themselves and two other friends to the SBA All Star weekend with a chance of meeting Reggie!

Snickers ($500K) - You never act like yourself when you’re hungry. Hold on, I’m not talking to you! I’m just copying the slogan. Snickers has had this ad campaign for quite a while now and the public seems to love the various twist and turns they’ve been able to have throughout the years with different celebrities popping up every so often. Instead of Reggie being the celebrity some regular person turns into when their hungry, Reggie will be turning into somebody else! Just another twist to the ongoing ad campaign.

Under Armour Sponsorship ($1MM) - Under Armour has grown expeditionary since it’s inception but it has yet to become the number one brand despite having one of the best athletes in the world in Chef C--Err, Seth Curry as the face of their company. This will not stop them from wanting to achieve their goal and put out some quality products that can surely compete with the best of them. Under Armour will now like to announce the sponsorship with one of the best big men in the game today in Reggie Cuyler of the San Diego Swan. Just like Under Armour, Cuyler has a never quit attitude when it comes to wanting to be the best. With this sponsorship Under Armour has agreed to sponsor any event he takes part in outside of the SBA for the community. Reggie will also be given a new moniker as ‘Stretch’ to go along with his ad campaign with the brand.

Stretch Youth Program ($1MM) - The Stretch Youth Program is something Reggie has wanted to do for a while and he now has the opportunity do so. Whether it be in a community in California or his hometown, the Stretch Youth Program will focus on helping kids starting in Middle School to High School who love the game of basketball to have a chance to learn from Reggie, have a chance to be tutored by some of the best teachers in the country, a spot on Reggie’s very own AAU team all in hopes that they will get a chance to play ball in college which is the ultimate goal. This program is something to help kids focus on their school work, the craft on the court as well as keeping out of trouble in which they might get themselves into if they didn’t have the resources they have available now. If a kid is not able to get an athletic scholarship to a college and has a B grade average, the youth program will give the child a scholarship themselves. Reggie wants to help the community as much as possible and it all starts with the kids and helping them live out their dreams.

Ryan Smallwood - $2MM
The Smallwood’s ($1MM) - Say hello to The Smallwood’s! This is a ad campaign from the State Farm insurance company. Ryan will be playing every member of the Smallwood family whether it be himself, his wife, his kids or even his parents! In each commercial the Smallwood’s will have a specific problem that can be solved by their insurance company State Farm. The commercials will be very comedic and air during the SBA season.

BODY ARMOR Sports Drink Sponsorship ($500K) - Ryan is upgrading his sports drink to BODY ARMOR! That’s right, Ryan Smallwood will be joining the BODY ARMOR family along with other premiere athletes. The sports drink company owned by basketball legend Kobe Bryant BODY ARMOR has quickly became Gatorade’s number one competitor since its inception. They sponsor various premiere athletes from several sports so why not tap into the SBA market as well? Ryan Smallwood has proven to be one of the best players in the league and embodies what it means to be an BODY ARMOR Athlete. With this sponsorship, Ryan will part of several ad campaigns whether it be print ads, online ads, billboards or commercials. Thanks Gatorade, we’ll take it from here.

Nike Sponsorship (500K) - Smallwood is signing with the best athletic apparel company in the world, Nike! Nike only works with the best and Ryan Smallwood is one of the best in all of SBA, there’s no doubt about that. With this sponsorship Ryan will receive exclusive merchandise and be featured in print ads, online ads, billboard and commercials. This will eventually elevate to Nike giving Ryan his own shoe and clothing line within Nike.

Drew Jones - $2MM
Drew’s Passage ($1MM) - Hulu has picked up the rights to film Drew Jones’ progression during his rookie year. Hulu wants to get in on sports and what better than to follow the rookie year of one the best point guards to come out of the SBA Draft? With basketball becoming the number one sports in the world (or at least battling to become it), Hulu wants in. Seeing their competition of Amazon Prime & Netflix already immersing themselves into sports, it’s not their time to do so too! With the help of San Diego Swan’s owner Tom Gaslamp and his connections in Hollywood this happening was as natural as a swan swimming in a lake on a hot summer day. Fans will be able to watch Drew’s rookie year from start to finish. Get to see him at his lows, see him at his highs whether it be on the court or off the court. The pilot episode of this limited series will be an introduction to Drew as it will focus on his childhood and all the way up to his college career up until draft day.

Welcome To The Flock ($250K) - Billboards will be placed all around the state or California and surrounding areas that the Swan represent that will feature Drew Jones in his jersey hyping up his arrival to ‘The Flock’. It’s no secret that Drew is one of the top rookies to come out of this draft and has a lot riding on him this upcoming season. Along with the welcoming campaign will also be plenty of online ads exclusively for those in located in Southern California. The online ads will feature a promo code that will give fans an opportunity to receive merchandise such as T-Shirts and Drew’s jersey as well as a Meet & Greet with Drew when they come to a home game of their choosing for free!

Puma Basketball Sponsorship ($750K) - Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. You’re reading this and you’re thinking to yourself...Puma?! Yes. Puma! Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, Puma is looking to revive their basketball department as they have signed Sean Carter better known as his stage name Jay-Z to be the President of Puma Basketball. Do you know who Jay-Z is? If you do you’d know that he has done pretty well for himself as a businessman lately including owning his very own sports agency Roc Nation Sports after selling his shares of NBA’s Brooklyn Nets. So far Mr. Carter has been pretty busy building up the the Puma Basketball team. He’s landed some pretty big names from this years NBA draft and he’s not just staying put in the NBA to build his team. He’s now signing one of the best guards from this year’s SBA draft, Drew Jones! Drew will have his own merch this season and be featured in Puma Basketball advertisements around the world. Welcome to Puma Basketball, Drew!

Walter Lebarrie - $2MM
Family Guy/American Dad Appearances ($500K) - Everyone loves these two cartoon series from Seth MacFarlane and it’s pretty hard not to. Walter will make an in the next seasons for the show as a special guest, not just as a surprise cameo in some random cut scene. Nope! In the Family Guy episode Walter will be paired with Brian being each other’s wingman of course with Stewie tagging along. It’d be like the hour specials they give Brian and Stewie sometimes. Ironically this same episode will lead into Walter appearing into the American Dad show. Here Walter will help Stan solve some kind of mystery in which this will also be an hour like special.

Spider-Man Campaign ($1MM) - This year Walter will be taking advantage of his Spiderman nickname and taking full on advantage of the moniker. At each home game Walter will be featured in a small comic (with the help of Marvel of course) in the team fliers that will portray him as Spider-Man & whoever he is set to guard tonight will be portrayed as various villains from the actual Spider-Man spectrum. Also fans can pick up Spider-Man mask that will put them in the running for a Spider-Man PS4 Pro & Spider-Man video game giveaway during halftime of the game that very night. Fans may also notice some Billboards hinting that Walter would was swinging with The Flock around San Diego. Also on Halloween night (if a game is scheduled around that time or the day at home) if you come dressed up as Spiderman you will receive a Swan x Spidey t-shirt and you’ll get free concessions for the night during the game. Except for alcoholic beverages...yeah no free beer sorry.

Uber ($500K) - Everyone uses Uber these days rather than having to call for cab the old fashioned way. It’s way more convenient. Uber will be parting up with Walter with print ads & commercials. Each form of advertisement will feature a promo code a customer can use on their next trip with Uber for 25% percent off.

Rob Burgess - $1.5MM
Welcome To The Flock ($500K) - Billboards will be placed all around the state or California and surrounding areas that the Swan represent that will feature Rob Burgess in his jersey hyping up his arrival to ‘The Flock’. Rob was San Diego’s major acquisition this offseason after his former team refused to match their offer sheet. People want to know who he is and to welcome him to the city. Along with the welcoming campaign will also be plenty of online ads exclusively for those in located in Southern California. The online ads will feature a promo code that will give fans an opportunity to receive merchandise such as T-Shirts and Rob’s jersey as well as a Meet & Greet with Rob when they come to a home game of their choosing for free!

Google ($500K) - Google has had some success marketing themselves throughout the years and they are constantly coming up with new technologies for consumers to use for their everyday life. Rob will be featured in various commercials showing how he uses Google products to help him navigate through this busy life when he’s away from the court.

New Feathers ($500K) - Another limited series from Hulu thanks to San Diego Swan’s owner Tom Gaslamp’s help. This series will San Diego fans a nice out look to their free agent pick up and see how he manages to make the transition from the Fort Worth Stars to the San Diego Swan.

GM Bennett, our team sheet is attached.  There are a couple of things we need to discuss.  First of all, your contract is guaranteed for two years and the ultimate goal is to make the playoffs by the end of the second year.  Your goal for this season is to FINISH WITH A WINNING RECORD.  With that out of the way, we need to talk business.  You unfortunately exceeded the PR cap by $1.2 million.  Due to that, we will be hit with a $4 million penalty to our PR cap for Season 5 and will have to get under the cap before we lock-in for this current regular season.  Needless to say Mr. Gaslamp isn't too happy about this, especially given the fact that the team hasn't had much success in the league and now this.  He's a comedian and only likes his jokes to be laughed at.  He expects you to fix this problem that you've created without gutting the team.  I know that was a lot, but good luck this season and I am always here if you need me.

Gentlemen, thanks for coming by. First let me start off by saying I'm excited to see what we will be able to achieve this season and seasons to come....But...Before we can get to that we have some business to address.

As you might already know...I bit off a little more than I could chew foolishly on my part. I'm usually better about this sort of thing but what has happened has happened and there's no going back into the past to change things like Back To The Future. One thing I can do to try and correct this error is to ask for players to take a cut out of their PR in order for us to move on and get this season started. But before I even think about doing that and pissing off some agents I thought I would do something a bit unorthodox....I thought I would ask you guys personally if you'd be willing to help us get over this hump by taking a pay cut.

I know...I know. This isn't what you was expecting when you were called to into my office. I hate having to do this as much as the next man or the man but it is something I will have to explore or I will be forced to step down from this position because I do not think I will be able to help manage this team if I cannot do so. I refuse to make a mockery of our owner's name and this organization. I've said this numerous times already but I strive to make this team a threat in this league rather than a laughingstock.

With that said...We are $1.2MM in the negative and whatever amount you all will be willing to sacrifice will be very much appreciated. If you would like to renegotiate your contract because of this unfortunate thing I ask of you then I will be glad to work with you on doing that..Just please. Please give us a and this a team to achieving our goals of becoming one of the best teams in the league.

GM Bennett, I will admit, this is an unusual request....really the first time in my long career that I have seen anything like it.  With that being said, we are all humans and mistakes happen....hell, I've had my fair share of dumb calls during a game.  I believe leadership is more than just rah rah words, it's about action.  You came to us as a man and owned up to your mistakes.  That takes good character.  Coach Oliver and myself have agreed to split the $1.2 million in salary reduction to help out the team.

I hope we can overcome this mishap and get back to focusing on what truly matters here and that's our upcoming season, building this team up and achieving our short and long term goals.

It's not a concession I want to make again, but it's important our team gets off on the right foot. We can put it behind us and move forward.

I feel the same way, coach. Truly.

In terms of your concern of us having a solid Shooting Guard I feel the same way. I believe it would serve us best to transition Jerod into that position more so than the PG position he's coming into the league as. He has size and the talent to play that position accordingly. Obviously this will not solve our problems completely but it is a solution I believe will work for us.

As for the others besides Drew, I believe they can be useful for us while they are here but also as trade assets if need be. Their contracts are certainly more than team friendly and if a team wishes to unload a player that meets our needs, these guys I believe will help us attain that said player.

With that said, I do have high hopes for our team this season. Playoffs is the goal coach, and I believe we have the talent and coaching staff to get us there accordingly.

I will definitely be playing Jerod in that position in certain lineups.  It's going to be all about creativity with our lineups, but myself and the rest of the coaching staff will get it figured out.

I've heard from some of our operations people that we don't have a game in the first two weeks.  But I will follow-up and let you know.  Apparently the league might be firing some of their scheduling people since the schedule still isn't out.

That is the goal but we're not in a rush to thrust him into the starting line up right off the bat. We had us a good start these first two weeks and we're taking a step in the right direction that is something I'm at least happy about. When will make Drew the starter? I'll leave that up to my coaching staff on when they feel the time is right and they feel is he comfortable enough to do so.

Couldn't agree more, Coach. I'm liking what we got going so far. Drew is looking good out there.

Yeah he is off to a better start than most of the rookies.  The media is trying to stir up stuff....but I say we keep him coming off the bench for now to provide that spark.

I agree coach. No point in rushing him into the starting line up.

I see we got Week 3 off but we got a busy week in Week 4. How are you feeling about our match ups there. We're pretty familiar with Olympia already I think we might already know what we need to do against them but besides them we have Fort Worth & Jacksonville.

I think we are equipped to beat both teams.  Fort Worth is young and inexperienced so we SHOULD be able to beat them.  Jacksonville is a little tricky.  They struggled the first two weeks, but they have a very good team.  It's still early in the season so we just play our game and we should be fine.

1. "What did you think of your team's performance over the past two weeks?"

2. "What's your plan for the upcoming two weeks?"

I felt we played well these last two weeks. It's pretty clear we missed out on Smallwood against Jacksonville I plan on meeting with the coaching staff to talk about that and to hear the status of his well being. Drew continues to progress as we though by providing a spark off the bench.

We plan on keeping up this momentum of success in the coming weeks as we continue to prove the Swan are an elite team in the league rather than a team to point and laugh at.

Any questions?

Yes and no but I don't see an issue with it as of right now. Our guys play hard in the paint so far we have been able to succeed with our big men and compliments well with our back court. If anything needs to be addressed, we will address them accordingly when we are capable of doing so.
