Some team officials want to see a player who requests a trade forfeit upwards of 70 percent of his salary.
How would it be determined who requested a trade? There are varying degrees of trade requests. Though Daryl Morey said the 76ers weren’t looking to trade Simmons, they already tried to trade him once and certainly appeared interested in trading him this offseason.
Which of those situations would count as trade requests that result in a player having his salary reduced?
Perhaps, this new rule will apply to all super-max players who get traded, regardless of whether or not they request it.
