NFL Style Trade Season

Steve Gorten of the Sun-Sentinel quoting Jaques Martin on the lack of trades,
"I'm wondering if since the [salary] cap has been brought whether we're not going to a direction that's close to the National Football League," Martin said, referring to the rarity of trades in-season. "You may see scenarios where you'll see a lot more trades in the offseason, at the draft. "Every team has their own budget and cap to work with. What happens, once you fill up your roster, you have to work with your people. It's not like in the past where if you weren't happy with a guy or you had an injury, you could go and get somebody. Now it makes it more difficult. It's the same for every team, almost."
