Will be interesting to see how the trade deadline works this year. Going by the '95 lockout season, the regular season ran from Jan. 20 to May 3. The trade deadline was on April 7. Reasonable to think this year could follow the same pattern.
I think the shortened season will also doom alot of bubble teams that have bad stretches. The problem with the last couple trade deadlines is that every team feels they have a chance to make the playoffs. Not enough sellers. And if those bubble teams have players they need to move before next season to get under the cap, all the better for our wishes to upgrade the roster.
