Decision time approaches. December 15 is a double deadline. The Nets need to dump a player as Wilson Chandler’s suspension ends and players who were signed in the off-season can now be traded. So Sean Marks will have a lot of flexibility.
December 6 - Last day a player can be traded and be eligible for a second trade at the deadline ... unless it’s in a one-for-one. Under CBA, teams cannot deal players for 90 days after they were acquired in a trade. The 2020 trade deadline is February 6. So any player traded after December 6 can’t be traded again this season.
December 15 - Wilson Chandler’s suspension ends. At that point, the Nets will have to waive a player to get back to 15, either him, Iman Shumpert, or another player. The Nets could also trade Chandler. And it all could happen prior to December 15.
— Free agents signed in the summer —Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan, Garrett Temple, Wilson Chandler, Theo Pinson and David Nwaba— can be traded. The first two will not be traded.
