Teams are not currently allowed to sign players to an extension, waive players under contract and conduct trades with another team, but that transaction moratorium will likely get lifted once there is an agreement on an amended collective bargaining agreement. This will likely occur before the draft on November 18th.

The first verbally agreed upon trade during the 2019 window was between the New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Lakers in the Anthony Davis deal on June 15th.

Free agency is expected to begin on or around December 1st.
