    Are rosters set once the deadline has passed?

    No. Players can still be waived and signed after the deadline. And a player is eligible for a team's playoff roster as long as he wasn't on another team's roster on March 1st or later.

    For example, there are reports that the Nets may waive one or more of their veterans with expiring contracts (Tony Battie, Bobby Simmons) if they don't trade them before the deadline. Those players then would be able to sign with any other team. A contender might want to add Battie for frontline depth.

    It is also possible that a player who is traded before the deadline could return to the team that traded him before the playoffs. If he has an expiring contract and isn't useful to the team that acquires him in the trade, they may choose to waive him. Once he clears waivers, he becomes a free agent and can sign with any other team. But he just can't sign with the team that traded him for 30 days (from the trade date) and such an arrangement can't be discussed before a trade is made.

     

    That was printed in 2010.  But the rule for this year is March 23rd.  Meaning I think Sean was waived before the 23rd deadline.  Meaning he could be eligible for the post season. I am not sure about that.

    The above is old and outdated from the previous CBA.

    This whole paragraph is incorrect.

    It is also possible that a player who is traded before the deadline could return to the team that traded him before the playoffs. If he has an expiring contract and isn't useful to the team that acquires him in the trade, they may choose to waive him. Once he clears waivers, he becomes a free agent and can sign with any other team.

    He was released by the date - thus eligible to be in the playoffs.  He just wasn't picked up right after he was released......which kind of says something right there!
