Yeah but again things are different at the deadline. In the offseason, guys can be signed so trades are less frequent (if you have a need you can fill it through free agency rather than a trade). Teams would be less inclined before the season even starts when they don't know their playoff situation etc. to trade for an aged player with a high cap hit coming off possibly the worst season of his career who is potentially going to be bought out this offseason or next. Not impossible, of course, but pretty unlikely.
