That would be circumvention.. you can re-acquire a player though. Just can't have it established or anything pre-planned with the player/agent.
By re-acquire, does that also include through trade? The scenario I'm thinking of is one in which a player is signed long term when he is dealt at the deadline, "rented" for the remainder of that season and playoffs, and then dealt back to his original team in the off-season. I re-call there being a rule in either the previous CBA or the one before it that prevented a player being dealt within a certain amount of time prior to the annual waiver draft and then being dealt back to the original team after(I think it was a year), but with the removal of the waiver draft, does such a rule still exist?
