RFA for dummies

Can i please have an RFA for dummies course (cliffs notes). Capgeek shows Weber and Voracek for instance as not on the roster for there teams as they are RFA-2012. Now...what exactly does that mean? Is Philly and Nash STILL the ONLY teams that can negotiate?When does that period end? What is likely to happen with those players since they dont have contracts for this upcomming year?Thanks for helping this dummy

A RFA is essentially the same as a UFA, including be allowed to discuss contracts with opposing teams as of June 26th. The only difference is their current team is able to match any offer agreed upon or receive compensation should they elect not to do so. To use your explain, no, Weber can negotiate with any team. He also has until December 31st to agree to a contract with Nashville (or whatever team acquired his RFA rights) before be ineligible to play for the duration of the season.

The deadline for group IIs is December 1

What is the latest date players can sign contracts?
Under the expired CBA, there was no signing deadline applicable to player contracts. Under the new CBA, Restricted Free Agents who do not sign contracts by December 1 of a given year will be ineligible to play in the League for the balance of that season
