Are you playing on PS2?

The trades (for picks) don't have anything to do with salary though. Let's say I try to trade the #15 and #25 for the #7. The other team is 100% interested, but the trade will not go through because "(team name) must keep 12 players on the roster". It makes absolutely no sense, because no players are coming off the roster, and picks are just imaginary items really...they have no effect on the roster until after the draft.

I've still yet to successfully trade a single pick. I just don't get it.

The only time i can't make trades is during the offseason. You have to wait until after the free agent signing period is over, all teams must have at least 12 players on the roster to make trades. I think they do this to keep you from screwing the cpu out of their lottery picks. The 3 team trade is a little more difficult to pull off, but i get it to work. I'm on the 360 though, maybe PS2 is different.
