No trade, no signing, no personnel moves of any kind can be completed until July 11, but they can be agreed to, leaked and discussed at any time after July 1. So it's difficult to make out the meaning of this story about Reggie Evans in the Los Angeles Times, as reported by Clips beat writer Broderick Turner.

The team hasn't yet agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that would send Reggie Evans to the Brooklyn Nets for a future second-round draft pick, the executives said, but it's still being considered.

Evans, according to reports, will be traded for a second round pick in 2017 or 2018 (the Nets don't have any between 2013 and 2015) and part of the $3 million trade exception obtained in the Gerald Wallace trade. Using the TE gives the Nets more flexibility since Evans wouldn't be signed out of cap space or either the MLE or BAE. League source said the Nets believe, "it will work out." As for Evans, he's already tweeted his farewell to Clipper fans and staff.
