The 13 Players Who Can Veto Trades In The Coming Season

As we enter the month of September and teams start to get back to business to get ready for training camp, the thought of trades will start to percolate in front offices everywhere. 

There are, however, 13 players around the NBA who can veto trades this season, and unless it's their idea, they're likely not going to be on the move in 2023-24.

This group consists of players with a full no-trade clause (NTC), those who had their offer sheets matched this summer (OSM), and those who've re-signed for one year or two years with an option (RS). 

Here's the full list:

  • Bradley Beal, Phoenix Suns (NTC)
  • Paul Reed, Philadelphia 76ers (OSM)
  • Matisse Thybulle, Portland Trail Blazers (OSM)
  • Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks (RS)
  • Miles Bridges, Charlotte Hornets (RS)
  • Jae Crowder, Milwaukee Bucks (RS)
  • Jeff Dowtin, Toronto Raptors (RS)
  • Deandre Jordan, Denver Nuggets (RS)
  • Damion Lee, Phoenix Suns (RS)
  • Kevin Love, Miami Heat (RS)
  • Josh Okogie, Phoenix Suns (RS)
  • Mason Plumlee, LA Clippers (RS)
  • Russell Westbrook, LA Clippers (RS)

There were several other players who were signed for one year (or two years plus option) who could have joined this list, but chose to give up their veto rights: 

Montrezl Harrell (Sixers), Reggie Jackson (Nuggets), Alex Len (Kings), Sandro Mamukelashvili (Spurs), D’Angelo Russell (Lakers), and Moritz Wagner (Magic).
