NBA, NBPA Agree To Extend Moratorium On Transactions Indefinitely 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Apr 10, 2020 6:08 pm

The NBA and NBPA have agreed to extend the moratorium on transactions indefinitely, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic.


This impacts contract agreements, trades and options for both players and teams.


Many players and teams have trigger dates that will be moved back to accommodate the NBA's suspension of the 19-20 season.

The NBA is truly fortunate to have Adam Silver @ the helm - truly outstanding commissioner.

HIs approach to any adversity faced by the NBA is fascinating compared to his predecessors and other leagues.

Forward thinking, honest, open, firm and focused on building / improving the league each season.

Looking forward to see how the NBA re-starts their season and what alterations to the season they have in mind -- likely we will see a shortened schedule going forward ( 72 games ) with in season tournaments for playoff seeding. The all-star modifications were interesting as well.

The next step is really thinking globally -- opening up the international market in terms of the league / teams -- you can't be world champions if your playing in one continent.

All in all - the league is in good hands.

Agree with everything except international market teams. that will not be possible until the future of cyber travel and even then the best players in the world come to the US, hence the world championship.

You have valid points -- Unlike all the US major leagues ( NFL / MLB / NHL ) ... the NBA is relying more & more on international growth / markets revenue to sustain the league. Its almost like the revers of MLS ( where Soccer started Internationally and is trying to make inroads to the US ). Agree that until you see revolutionary advancements in travel (i.e. supersonic passenger jets, hyperloop ) that the NBA's advancement into international markets may take a while (i.e. a decade ).

Hoping that Adam Silver focuses much more on an immersive fan experience (i.e. virtual reality games where fans can virtually enter the court on their headset ), deeply interconnect fans with teams / players (i.e. bitcoin contracts or have each player / team as an entity on the US stock market, where fans can invest in teams / players ).

Again, hoping that Adam Silver is bold and moves forward with immersive fan experience ( the international teams / market will catch up in parallel ).
