NBA Trade Window Now Open

by November 16, 2020

Just over a month ago, the Lakers were crowned NBA champions. Now, not long after, things are about to change all over the league. As things continue to move quickly in this shortened offseason, the NBA has lifted the trade moratorium as of noon EST today.

This allows teams to officially start making deals.

As first reported yesterday by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, teams were informed of the news, with there being no shortage of early action when it came to trades as a result.

Within an hour of the news around the NBA’s moratorium, the first trade of the offseason was agreed to in principal between the Los Angeles Laker and Oklahoma City Thunder that would send Dennis Schroder to the reigning champs.

While the deal cannot become official until later today when the trade window opens, it’s still a market-setting deal and the first big move ahead of roster building for the 2020-21 NBA season.

Looking ahead, the 2020 NBA Draft is this Wednesday, and free agency will start on Friday. Get ready, it’s about to be a busy week in the NBA.
