The ESPN Trade Machine is broken, at least for me. Everything is coming up as successful, even ridiculous trades (eg Howard, Turk, Arenas for Jodie Meeks). Can anyone else confirm?

If so, keep that in mind when checking trade proposals.

Well, it looks like it's open season on stupid trades. Have at it, I guess.

What are the chances some reporter or blogger or whatever comes out with a 'source' that the new CBA has been agreed and is allowing anything-for-anything trades now?

What if its not broken....what if its because there are no salary cap rules for next year, there is not salary cap so all deals could theoretically be valid.

The salaries are wrong anyway. You are basically doing trades as if you are going into the 2010-2011 season. They are using this past season's salaries.

Pretty sure that's the way it's supposed to be. For trade purposes, it's still the 2010-11 season. The salaries switch over during the July moratorium. Of course, there is no July moratorium this year because of the CBA issues, but we're still on '10-'11 salaries.

The trade machine still seems to have some salaries wrong, but not for that reason.
