The NBA’s wise decision to suspend play during the spread of COVID-19 has triggered negotiations between the league and players union. On Friday, the NBA and NBPA agreed to freeze transactions until the suspension of play ends.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania delivered the news that, for now, impacts 10-day contracts and other roster moves.

For the most part, the stakes of the moves that could be made after the trade deadline are relatively minimal. However, this early agreement between the NBA and NBPA is a positive sign for the future. Both sides will have to agree to new terms if the NBA’s re-tooled schedule pushes into July.
