We can just get rid of the rules pertaining to trades. I think we should keep that picks don't have value, but players drafted do. That way teams with little to no cap room, might be able to trade picks for smaller contracts or something along those lines, or some sort of cap relief.
I think we've stated in the past cash cannot change hands.
First of all I apologize for these oversight issues involving recent trades. I'm in favor of whatever the league decides on trades, so lets put it to a vote. I have no problem having the managers involved tweak the trades(myself included) if the league deems that the best course of action.
That said I found this in Kal's old rules:if a team is over the (soft) cap limit, or doing a trade that would put it over it, salary it's taking on in the trade must be within 125% + 100k of the salary it's giving up.
The way this reads to me is that if both teams are under the cap, and would remain that way after the trade that you don't have to follow the percentages. however I believe Kal still made us put a minimum salary in the trade, even in those cases. so technically the lee deal would have needed to be tweaked to reflect that. In the johnson-frye one, it would have been legal.
