Player Retirement

Whether a player decides to retire or not depends on many factors.

Retirement Factors

  • Age
  • Employment Status (If nobody wants to sign you, you are more likely to call it quits)
  • Playing Time
  • Career Performance
  • Recent Performance
  • Additional considerations

Although performance, or lack thereof, is an important factor in the decision to retire, some players with poor offensive performance but strong defense can contemplate retirement at an early age despite their defensive strengths and values.
