Article Summary:

In the aftermath of Ben Simmons pushing for a trade from the 76ers and James Harden pushing for a trade from the Nets then getting dealt for each other, Silver addressed star movement with the authority of someone who has seen the research. To me, is something very different, and free agents moving at the end of contracts is different, than what we just saw where you have players actively seeking to move while they’re under contract.

Owners pushed for shorter contracts because long deals too often became albatrosses.

But if a contracted player wants to be traded and hasn’t been, that’s not a great situation, either.
