EACH LEAGUE HAS ITS OWN RULES Each league has its own rules and these have been faithfully reproduced in Pro Basketball Manager 2017. Your bosses fix your seasonal goals, which you can even set higher! The recruitment process applied to your team will differ completely according to the league in which you play.

Whereas in the North American league, you will have to handle all the complexity of contracts, exceptions to avoid paying the luxury tax, not to mention trades or the draft. Finally, in the other leagues you will have to manage the buying of players, loans or free agents, taking care not to exceed the payroll allocated to your team for the season.
