The NBA put a moratorium on transactions nearly a month ago.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:
Business remains paused.

This is the only logical way to proceed.
In normal times, player options and (non-rookie-scale) team options must be decided by June 29. Many players’ contracts have guaranteed dates around that time. Those deadlines spark action, including trades.
Everyone ought to know there’s a moratorium on those moves.
Once it becomes clear when play can resume, owners and players will negotiate a new calendar. Until then, everything is paused.
