101. What is the July Moratorium?

It is a period during the month of July in which teams may not sign most free agents or make trades. Free agents become free on July 1, but the salary cap is not set until the league's audit is completed later in the month. Teams and players must wait for the salary cap to be set before trades and most free agent signings can commence. Teams may negotiate with free agents beginning July 1, but they have to wait until the moratorium ends before signing a contract. The dates for the July Moratorium are as follows: LINK

There are a few types of signings that are allowed to take place during the July Moratorium. Generally, these are the signings that do not depend in any way on the specific value of the salary cap:
•Teams may sign their first round draft picks (to a standard rookie "scale" contract -- see question number 48)
•A second round draft pick can accept a required tender, which is a one-year contract offer teams must submit to retain their rights to the player.
•A restricted free agent can accept a qualifying offer from his prior team (see question number 43).
•A restricted free agent finishing the fourth season of his rookie "scale" contract can accept a maximum qualifying offer. The player will receive the maximum salary, but the actual amount is not determined until the end of the moratorium (see question number 43).
•Teams may sign players to minimum salary contracts for one or two seasons.

All other signings must wait until the moratorium ends.

Technically we can't sign a free agent until July 11th but we can start talking to players/agents and get verbal commitments.

Why is it so funny?
They don't have any cap space to spend.

Only way for this team to improve is by trades.

The mini MLE is going to bring pretty much another non impact player i think.

Yes, unfortunately ring chasers no longer have the Lakers at the top of their list...we need Mitch to go to work.

Free Agency is important. Deron Williams is the first domino. After that decision is made, we'll proceed to move Pau and talk to guys like Nash, Mayo, Beasley, etc...

Free agency bleh! Non-impact scrubs and camp fodder most likely. The only decent names will come in a Pau trade.

Hopefully, Deron makes his decision quickly, so that the Lakers can figure out their next move.

That is what scares me. When word gets out we're signing a player other teams have till July 11th to interfere and mess it up! Hard to make stealth moves now.

I'm more excited about which productive player we're gonna trade for a conditional first rounder from a playoff team.

Yay me!!!
