There is no similar rule now.
A team is free to want to re-acquire a player - but there can be no binding agreement to do so.
In addition, if a team did re-acquire a player and it appeared to the League that the intent of the trades was to be a loan in violation of that By-Law, the the teams could be subject to investigation and sanctions under the No Circumvention rules of Article 26.
Curious, does 9.4.B nullify all NTC/NMC clauses or is that in some other rule? Sounds like that just prohibits teams from saying "I'll trade you player X as long as you don't trade him to my rival"
