Trades

Teams may trade players until the Trading Deadline on the 16th Thursday of each season. Teams may resume trading at the end of the regular season, except that no playoff team may trade a player on its playoff roster until the team is eliminated from the NBA Playoffs.

did they change it though? I don't remember the last time I saw a trade during the playoffs. I thought it was always sometime in july or something. Like I know all the trades in the nba draft were proposed and aren't official until july. I'm not really sure.

As the Cavs have been officially eliminated from the playoffs, this works.

Yeah, I don't remember movement in June. July applies to free agency. Players who are going to be Free Agents can still be moved. For instance Matt Barnes was traded but he'll become a Free Agent in July. The move was just to make the numbers work.
