In the past two articles, we’ve taken a closer look at the trade restrictions imposed on two groups of players who signed free agent contracts this offseason. The smaller players from the two teams include players who cannot be traded by their team until January 15th and have re-signed contracts that meet certain requirements. The other offseason signees we examined are not eligible to be traded until Dec. 15.
In addition to these two teams, there are a few other sets of players that face certain trade restrictions this season. They can’t be traded until a certain date, they can’t be traded in certain packages, or they can’t be traded at all before the end of February.
Listed below are the players affected by these trade restrictions. This list, which we will continue to update periodically as needed, can be found on our desktop sidebar under “Hoops Rumors Features” or in the mobile menu under “Features.”
