Also, to my knowledge, RM hasn't signed his tender yet, and we can't trade him until he does...

Wasn't there a deadline to sign it?

Wasn't there a deadline to sign it?

That deadline was for he and his agent to negotiate with other teams, and seek an offer elsewhere...

Now, only we can negotiate with other teams... but we can't trade him until he signs it, because technically he isn't under contract...

I asked the league about this via email, and here is the original email I sent and the response to it:

I was wondering if a team can trade the "rights" of a Restricted Free Agent whom has not signed his tender, or do they have to wait until the player signs their tender?

As per my understanding, up until the recent deadline, an RFA whom had not signed their tender from their original club could negotiate with other teams. Now, the only option is to sign the original team's tender or hold out.

Players must be under contract (which includes a signed tender) to be traded. Prior to the April 15 deadline, you are correct, RFAs were able to negotiate with other clubs.
