Here's what the old CBA said about priority for waiver claims.
13.19 Priority for Waiver Claim(s):
If only one Club makes a claim for the Player on whom Waivers have been requested, such Player shall be transferred to that Club.
In the event that more than one Club makes a claim for such Player, he shall be transferred to the claiming Club having earned the lowest percentage of possible points in the League standing at the time of the request for Waivers or, if Waivers are requested outside the playing season, then to the Club having earned the lowest percentage of possible points in the preceding season's schedule of Regular Season Games.
If the successful Waiver claim is made before November 1st then the priority shall be determined by the final standing in the League's Regular Season schedule in the preceding season.
