Hi. Does anyone know what the NBA rules are on trading recent signings? And by that I mean free agents. Although I like Andre Miller, and I think he a quality point gaurd, I'm not convinced he meshes with Brandon Roy that well in the back court.
Obviously, I still wish we traded for Hinrich. If KP and the rest of the head office aren't convinced with Andre either, what's stopping them from making a realistic trade to the bulls.
Is there a rule that prevents this?
If there is no rule (although I'm pretty sure I read there is) why not make a move; Hinrich and Brad Miller for Miles' contract, Andre Miller and Steve Blake, plus our first round pick next year. (that's just an example by the way)
The contracts match.
The bulls get $14 million in expiring contracts, Andre, who has only one guanteed year after this, as well as a first round pick. That free cap space may come in handy if they want to pursue a top free agent next year such as Wade.
The Blazers get a guard who fits nate's style a bit better, plus he can shoot from deep, along with Brad Miller. I guess it would open up more playing time for bayless and rudy too.
