Dec. 9 is when training camp opens, and free agency starts.

No dates are officially the CBA has not even been signed yet. Figure about 7 days or so after the CBA signs (probably Wed or Thurs) for the league year to start with Dec 9th the most likely start or training camp as per David Stern.

The CBA is currently being written then the owners and players need to formally vote and sign.

For an example can LARRY BIRD talk to other teams about potential trades...there was an article in the paper they could, but just couldn't talk to the players or their agents.

Thanks! Dec 9th is going to be pretty crazy, the whole first week should be pretty crazy with player movement and cuts.

Don't look for many amnesty cuts off the bat. If I had to make an educated guess, I would say no more than 3-5 guys are released right away. I think Lewis and Arenas are gonzo as fast as possible. After that, guys like Roy may go under medical evaluation for instance, and as teams sign free agents or fill a need, they may then exercise it. Hell I don't think more than 10-15 teams use it this year.
