Brace yourselves for a torrent of NBA activity starting next week. 

For the first time in more than nine months, teams will be able to make trades. The window to wheel and deal is expected to reopen “shortly before the NBA draft,” ESPN reported Monday. With the draft scheduled for Nov. 18 and free agency slated to begin Nov. 20, that means the Pelicans will have a window of approximately two weeks to reshape their roster before training camp opens.

The decision to tip off next season Dec. 22, which came at the urging of the NBA’s television partners, has put a massive strain on front offices. Here is a guide to the three biggest questions David Griffin, Trajan Langdon and the Pelicans’ brain trust will wrestle with.

The days ahead may bring more turmoil, but the worst uncertainty is behind us. (And at least you’re not a Danish mink.) Here’s how Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory affects business and tech, and what to know for the coming week.

Another thing to be less stressed about this week: Your stock portfolio. Markets made up for their losses in late October as President-elect Biden cemented his lead in the presidential election results and signs pointed to Republicans keeping their majority in the Senate. If Congress remains divided, Wall Street can expect few changes in tax or regulatory policies in the coming years. And if Democrats do wind up taking the Senate (which will be determined by two runoff elections in Georgia in January), a surge of government spending aimed at shoring up the economy could also bolster markets.
