Talks on opening the NBA’s transaction window — trades, contract opt-ins and outs, etc. — are progressing toward firming a date two or three days prior to the November 18 draft, sources tell ESPN.
With the draft starting on Nov.
18th and free agency beginning just two days after on the 20th, the
NBA is now close to coming up with a date for when transactions
will be allowed again. This date will have to be before the NBA
2020 Draft opens up to allow teams in the draft to complete trades.
It will also give players a chance to opt-in or out of their
expiring contracts before free agency begins.
