Tim Watson with the breaking news this morning.
The Age floated the possibility on Tuesday night, but Watson believes it will indeed happen next year.
“The mid-season trade period is going to become the pre-season trade,” Watson told SEN Breakfast.
“There’ll be a 48 to 72-hour window that will open just before the season, I’m not exactly sure what the dates are going to be, but there will be a window that opens when those trades can occur.
“It won’t happen during the year, it won’t happen mid-season, it’ll happen in the pre-season.
“It will happen according to my people.
“When the clubs met, all the CEO’s, there was opposition, they didn’t like the mid-season draft.”
Don’t see the point in this. Wasn’t the whole point of Pre-Season Draft period is to replace players you need?
Players are training all summer with one club, and then get traded to another.
I’m happy with player movement. Just note sure it’s the right idea.
