Well if a team trades for a players rights, then they are allowed to sign the player before he actually hits free agency.

So, on one hand, yes other teams could negotiate with the player during the week prior to July 1st, and can sign the papers on July 1st.

But, on the other hand, a team that trades for rights can start negotiating even before that week, and can sign the player at any time.
