Avalanche of trades soon?

With all the different scouting rumors we had in the past weeks and the difficulty to make trades and keep a good margin with the salary cap, I expect the first team to move to precipitate a few other trades, as I expect some teams to make two trades at the same time (kind of three-way deal). I don't know if that will happen soon or in four months, but for the fun of this board, I hope it wont be too long.

I don't think there are going to be any major trades in the near future. Payrolls are too tight for that.

Three way deals are unlikely under the best of circumstances, and with the complexities of every team needing to balance payroll, evern more unlikely.

I don't think you'll see much action until the deadline. At that point, impending UFAs on non-contending teams will be moved.

Darth, I agree there won't be many major moves any time soon (other than, let's hope, dumping Kvasha for some stick tape!). But I think what the thread poster may have meant was not three-way-trades per se, but seeing a team make one trade to dump salary, purely cost-cutting, and then another to actually acquire the player they want. I think that scenario is going to be the way of the future due to the cap.
