Teams have started to shift their focus out of a frenzied trade deadline market, instead focusing on the buyout market soon to ensue, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deadline for contract buyouts is March 1. Just as teams are looking to aggressively sell some of their star and role players before the 3 p.m. deadline hits later today, others are licking their chops considering the ones that won’t get moved and how teams will look to repair those relationships. Some will keep them in-house and move forward, but most will look for some way to agree on a contract buyout, and other teams will be waiting to dart their best pitch and offer to reel them in.
