Trade Committee

The Trade Committee is responsible for monitoring the trades made in the WBA to assure the integrity of the league. All trades are to be submitted to the Trade Committee (with a brief explanation of the reasoning for the trade) and will be forwarded to the Commissioner after the Trade Committee has approved them. A trade requires majority approval. 

The Trade Committee is made up of 5 members. For a trade to be processed it must receive approval from at least three of those members. Committee members may not vote on their own trades and in the event of a tie the commissioner will cast the deciding vote. The Trade Committee was established to protect the integrity of the league and to protect new owners who are still learning the ropes in the WBA.

The purpose of the committee is to protect owners (especially new owners) from making grossly one-sided trades. It is not the role of the committee to make sure that all trades are even. If the committee is against a trade they should contact the owners involved and find out their reasoning for the trade and so long as the reasoning is sound and the owner understands the risks and consequences the trade should be approved. The exception to this is if the committee believes the two owners are cooperating together in a way that would jeopardize the integrity of the league. A second purpose of the committee is to make sure that no rules are being violated by the trade (salary cap, trading consecutive first round picks etc.)

Committee Members: Alex Junge (Chair),   Sergio Gutierrez (Assistant Chair), Brad Bangerter,  Marc Hameleers & Steven Goodstadt
