I always thought that a player could be bought out at anytime, but from the way I'm understanding it, that's not the case-that players who start the season on their respective team, if they have an NMC, can only be moved if they waive, but they can't be bought out until the next period?
Hope I'm being clear.
Correct - a player CANNOT be bought out during the season.
The only two periods when a player can be bought out are June 16-30 (the Regular Period) and a 48 hr window starting 3 days after a teams last arbitration case is settled ("Ordinary Course Buy-Outs Outside the Regular Period").
