Even so, saying as much didn’t quell the perception that a work stoppage might be looming when the current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires prior to the 2022 season.

There has not been a trade in the NBA since Russell Westbrook was moved in July, which represents an unprecedented slowness for the league.

According to our research, that is actually the longest the NBA has been without a trade since 1968 – excluding seasons shortened by lockouts. In fact, for the first time ever in a non-lockout season, this is the first time there have been no trades in August, September, October or November.

We asked some of the high-ranking folks that work for teams why they believe there has been such little movement this year.

“With so many new players on new teams, many teams are still trying to figure out their needs,” explained one NBA executive. “Look at how many stars changed teams. I think that is the main reason for the drought.”

  Trump said Hong Kong would be 'obliterated' without him "If it weren't for me, Hong Kong would have been obliterated in 14 minutes,” Trump said, amid the intensifying anti-Beijing protests in the city.“If it weren't for me, Hong Kong would have been obliterated in 14 minutes,” Trump said in a phone interview on “Fox & Friends,” the morning news show known for its fierce defenses of the president.

Six players who made All-NBA honors switched teams during the 2019-20 offseason. That more than doubled the previous record set in 1998 and also matched the total of the previous four offseasons combined. It also does not include top stars like Anthony Davis and Jimmy Butler, who did not make All-NBA last season.

As we wrote last month, only 43.6 percent of players in the NBA returned to the same team this season that they were on for opening night last year. That was the lowest mark of any year during the 21st century.

While the massive shaking of the snow globe across the association played an obviously big role in the current trade draught, another NBA front office personnel offered a different reason: “The fact that two-way contracts, in some scenarios, allow teams another avenue to supplement roster needs.”

For example, the Golden State Warriors have been decimated by injury this season. So to replenish their roster, they have received 421 minutes from Ky Bowman and 241 minutes from Damion Lee. These two teammates lead all players on two-way contracts in playing time so far this season.

There are 35 players who are currently signed to two-way deals for an NBA team in 2019-20. While these contracts do not provide the major shakeup that a trade would provide, it does give immediate relief for rosters without worry about mortgaging the future.
