    Any trade won't happen until December 15 per CBA.

    Does that mean this is a complete fabrication?

    I can't imagine why anyone would want Q-Rich (especially giving up picks). He's got nothing left if the last 3 years are any indication.

    This can't be real. No one would trade FOR Q-rich unless hes a piece of a bigger trade.

    Always look at the source.

    Rant < or = to B/R

    The only possibility I can see is if there is a trade that sends a couple million back to Toronto as it would save the Bulls in the neighbourhood of $5M with luxury tax. But even that is a stretch.

    The article said nothing about a "trade coming soon". Total headline grabber of a tweet right there..

    It just said that a "trade makes sense" and the bulls are "interested"..

    "According to yahoo sports the team is looking to trade Richardson and the bulls are one of the top teams interested"

    If he is not waived prior to start of season, there will be a two week window where he is eligible to be traded, from Sham Sports:

    2nd and 3rd years are both fully unguaranteed, both becoming fully guaranteed if not waived on or before January 1st 2014.

    No..you can't trade newly acquired players until December.

    Can trade whoever was on the team last season.

    Well that all makes sense. I guess Q Rich if this possible trade holds any water will be held on by Ujiri as an asset in a deal for later? rather than waiving him.

    Ujiri really keeps anything hes planning in his breast pocket nobody knows.

    They are light on SG depth and experience. Not that Qrich is that useful.

    I don't think they'd give up Nazr ... but why not try Rose instead.

    To Bulls: Demar + Amir + DJ + QRich + Gay
    To Raptors: Butler + Boozer+Hinrich+ Snell +Deng + picks

    Bulls Lineup: Rose/Demar/Gay/Gibson/Noah Bench: DJ, QRich, Dunleavy, Amir, Nazr

    The Bulls take on more salary and are already in tax but even then, they would prefer no QRich.

    That said, if this trade occurred I think the Raptors have activated their tank and would have all big contracts expiring by 2016 (Demar gone). There should be an effort to trade Deng/Boozer/Hinrich to other teams in a three way or four or 20 way trade for more young prospects and picks. But now this is getting too speculative and ridiculous.

    Pretty sure if its just Q-Rich, you can trade him whenever you want. Just can't package him with other players. Unless I'm missing another provision halting the trade.

    I remember when Rasheed was traded to from Portland to Atlanta years and years ago.
    Played 1 game and then was traded to Detroit after less than a week.

    Not positive, but I'm pretty sure the issue with Q-Rich is that he was signed and traded. All players that have just signed new contracts are untradable, until Dec 15th in this case (I think it's the same date every year).

    No player who signed as a free agent (that includes sign and trades) this summer can be traded until December 15th. Examples include Richardson, Jefferson, Mayo, Ellis, Iggy, etc.

    No player who was signed by his team through matching an offer sheet (restricted free agency) can be traded until December 15th like any other free agent however the team who made the offer cannot acquire for 1 year and for that 1 year the player can veto any trade. Example Jeff Teague.

    A player already under contract and traded can be traded by himself at any time. Example Novak. However player cannot be traded with another player for two months. Example Novak cannot be packaged with anyone else until September 10th.

    So back to my comment about his contract, Richardson can only be traded between December 15th and January 1st assuming he had not been waived. I highly doubt MU will pay him for another two seasons beyond this year and I highly doubt anyone would trade for 2 year fully guaranteed veteran minimum contract on a guy who has declined as fast as Richardson.


    The content in the original post is bullsh!t unless "soon" means 4.5 months.

    Of course. I forgot Q-Rich resigned with NY before being traded. Thanks all!
