93 NBA Players Become Trade-Eligible

It’s December 15, which means today’s the day that most of the players who signed new contracts this past offseason become trade-eligible for the first time. In total, 93 players will have those trade restrictions lifted today.

The NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement states that a free agent who signs with an NBA team can’t be traded for three months or until December 15, whichever is later. So, players who signed new contracts after September 15 aren’t eligible to be dealt yet. Additionally, there are several players who met a specific set of criteria when they signed their new deals and can’t be traded until January 15.

Besides those players though, nearly everyone in the NBA is now trade-eligible, which means that teams eager to talk trades can begin doing so in less hypothetical terms — there aren’t many roadblocks left in their way. Of course, most deals still won’t be completed until closer to the February 8 deadline, but today represents the unofficial start of NBA trade season for 2017/18.
