The player’s current CONTRACT transfers in the trade, so the Bird rights are basically limited to that contract. A one-year deal would only allow for Non-Bird rights.

The CBA automatically gives a veto right to any player on a one-year deal who would lose his full or Early Bird rights if traded. Teams have no say in the matter.

As Base Year Compensation players (due to the huge raises they received this past summer), neither Chris Paul nor Clint Capela are trade-eligible until January 15. (Also, neither is likely going anywhere.)

Effective today, James Ennis, Carmelo Anthony, Gerald Green and Michael Carter-Williams are all trade eligible. However, Green (as a One-Year Bird player) has the right to veto any trade involving him.

Brooks Hatlen may be available. A little long in the tooth and with a checkered past, but he’s a fountain of wisdom. Could be a good influence on PHX’s young guys.

Right. But if the Knicks strike out in free agency, I'm guessing they'd then turn to Trier's Non-Bird rights rather than another exception.

Why wouldn't they instead use Non-Bird rights?

Could not agree more about those awful Diet Coke commercials! As someone who regularly consumes that product, those ads made me substantially LESS likely to continue said consumption.

I am NOT saying I would give up a first round pick to get KCP. I was merely mapping out a trade that is plausible under the salary cap. But my guess is that'd be the cost for CLE to essentially take on $12-13M more in guaranteed salary for 2019-20.

Hence, the "?". Not saying I would do it. Just that it is plausible under the salary cap.

And JR Smith might actually be the type of piece that could go to PHX to make a four-team trade work: HOU gets: KCP (assuming he consents) LAL gets: Trevor Ariza PHX gets: JR Smith plus some small asset (from ?) CLE gets: Brandon Knight, HOU's 2019 1st rd pick?

The Houston Rockets have won an NBA basketball game. This pleases me.

James Harden has been extremely un-clutch this season. He’s GOT to find that killer instinct he had last season. Like, right away.

Maybe they should’ve inserted Dennis Rodman into the starting lineup instead.

Vikings doing everything possible to worsen the ’ draft pick tonight. Not pleased.

I'd rather wait a few more days and then trade MCW (as partially guaranteed filler) in a deal to acquire a player on another team, the vast majority of whom are better than Nick Young.
