The Trade/Free Agency Ladder 2021


Well, trade period is over for another season, and thank the good lord for that – what a snoozefest!

I know it is not supposed to be entertainment, and that is probably a good thing, but what we witnessed this past couple of weeks is about as far removed from entertainment as Joe Ganino is from good hygiene.

However, amongst the posturing and pontificating, some pretty decent deals were done, and we have taken it upon ourselves… or more to the point, I have taken it upon myself to rank the ten best moves of the 2021 off-season.

I’m including free agency signings as well, because they are often the moves that top up a team contending, or help shape the future of a rebuilding club. Let’s jump into the best ten moves we saw this off-season.
