First of the team-by-team previews, which include 2021 cap sheets. The projections and explanations of the cap situations is by me, the other stuff generally isn't.

Starts with Chicago: https://herhoopstats.substack.com/p/2020-reflections-and-2021-forecasts

So when it comes to Chicago or any other team, trades can be made before the deadline that teams have to use their core designation on a player, correct? The Storm’s Swin Cash-to-Chicago trade came as early as January 2 of 2012, for example.

Absolutely, yes. That Chicago section, as stipulated at the start, was written on the basis of them not making any trades. The Sky could trade away Dolson for a box of hair, as some people around here think they ought to, and then they'd have room to core Parker if they wanted to.

Got it, thanks! Idk why I was under the impression that that had changed sometime between 2012 and now. Maybe it’s just cuz those early-year trades have been so rare. (And maybe we’ll see more of that now that teams may have to get creative to build an affordable yet solid roster).

Believe me, you're not the only one somewhat confused in this area. Exactly when you're allowed and not allowed to make trades is one of those things that isn't actually specified in the CBA. There's an explicit moratorium on teams and players negotiating or signing anything at any point from the end of the regular season until January 31st (apart from players just signing their qualifying offers), but nothing about timing of trades. We obviously have a 'trade deadline' every year, but as far as I've found there's no public 'trade reopening' date.

Purely from history, my guess is that they become legal again January 1st, because as you say we have seen January trades in past years. That would make sense, because each 'Salary Cap Year' begins on the relevant January 1st. So the trade deadline would therefore end trades for that Salary Cap Year, and they'd become legal again once the next one begins. Just one of the many things they could make clear very easily, but don't.

I got into how the new CBA and altered salary structure means you can't keep veterans around like you used to. Phoenix are the example case used, but it's a general concept and point. I promise it's shorter than many of my other pieces Wink.

You see, whereas you used to be able to sign your entire veteran core of at least six players for around the maximum and then fill out your roster, Phoenix's four max/supermax contracts would account for 64% of the team cap. That doesn't leave the same room to maneuver that teams used to have.

Phoenix will not trade Griner. Unless she does not want to be a part of the organization anymore.
