WNBA trade moratorium ends on Friday; both sides still working on CBA

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The CBA might not be finished - but according to Sue Favor of They're Playing Basketball, the waiting period for trades and contracts will expire this Friday at 11:59 pm EST.

We still don't have a completed WNBA collective agreement yet, even though both sides are in agreement in principle.  While the T's are being crossed and the I's remain to be dotted, Sue Favor at They're Playing Basketball gives us some good news.

The moratorium on WNBA teams signing new players, trading players, designating core players/giving qualifying offers, and on prospective players signing contracts/agreements with teams expires at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time Friday, March 7, 2014, a source told They're Playing Basketball today.

Don't believe me?  Go over to They're Playing Basketball and read it for yourself.  As far as I'm concerned, the 2014 WNBA season begins early Saturday morning.
