    Edit: Looks like this was posted in the NBA forum but with all that's going on I thought I would share on the Spurs forum.

    Nope. This is the extent we will hear from it until next season, when he will pay more lip service to the issue and then continue to do nothing about it.

    Besides, what are they going to do about players talking with each other? Wiretap them?

    What can he do?

    Contracts are fully guaranteed..unless they limit the length of contracts, don’t fully guarantee them what can they do? A player can only request a trade with a certain amount of years remaining?

    Teams shouldn’t be able to trade players with one year remaining unless the player 100% agrees to the destination?

    Players are prohibited from coaching, assistant coaching, or owning any portion of an NBA team while playing. If they add that they can't own an agency that represents NBA players, a LOT of this goes away over night. LeBron would be forced to either retire or sell Klutch.

    He can do this:

    -A player under contract can be traded only in his last year of contract.
    -If a player still wants to leave before, he can do it but he is going to be paid the vet min; the difference goes to the league and counts on the new team cap anyway.
    -buyouts cannot sign anywhere until the following season

    That would already do a lot to put some reins to this madness

    Interesting ideas

    I also think buyouts should go through an auction process and then be immediately tradeable. Teams with cap space or available exceptions can block players going to team of their choice. Or buying out team then gets credit towards next year’s cap for whatever the player signed for that year (or a trade exception).

    Early in that conference, Silver acknowledges that he's aware people are violating the moratorium and tampering rules. Then he does a little politician tapdance, and makes it sound like no big deal.

    Silver wont do . And it's going to get worse before it gets better. Because until that with ears gets run out of town, this is the way it's meant to be.

    +1

    Public trade demands result in 50% forfeiture of salary owed by the team.

    Longer possible terms (6-7 years)

    Unguaranteed contracts

    It wouldn't help preventing players from leaving, but it'd be nice to have a compensatory draft pick if one of these max or supermax players forces their way off of the team. Lose a supermax player, and you get a back end of the lottery pick.

    Not ideal, but it would lessen the sting a little bit.

    Silver doesn't mind all of this. This "drama" creates intrigue in the bigger markets and in social medial. So he will turn a blind eye to all of this.

    The real problem is players forcing trades 1 year into their contract a la Paul George.

    Don't think Presti was too upset. Think he was ready to blow it up himself.

    But OKC had leverage on there side to say no.

    markets...

    To be fair, it seems like everyone found loopholes in the CBA. He is saying that there must be a lot of changes for the next CBA in 2021. There will be a huge fight and things will have to be addressed then. It will be probably a lost season.

    That's what it feels like and if your team doesn't draft well, good luck. I know some people here complain about RC but I think the Spurs have a very good chance of becoming bottom of the barrel for a long time once he leaves. Might as well chop the league down to 8 big market teams so these diva players can live it up while playing a game for millions of dollars.
