The passing will be mourned by frequently misinformed BaB commenters everywhere, who spent the last year not reading the CBA FAQ, and:
- Suggested to combine the trade exception with actual outgoing players in trade to bring back a more expensive player, even though TPEs cannot be combined with players this way.
- Suggested to use the TPE to sign a free agent, even though it can't be used to sign a free agent, just acquire a player under contract. Or a player via sign and trade, except that the Bulls can't use it that way because, they would also have to shed a lot of salary to get under the tax "apron" to do it.
- Suggested we use it last year, even though we were hard-capped and any player we might acquire would be illegal to acquire since it would put us over thathard cap.
- Suggested that the Bulls were actually going to use it this offseason, when doing so would cost them a shit ton of money.
