“They will result in a more competitive league in terms of lineup strength and potential,” said Salud. “As always, fundamental in my evaluation of trades is the parity among the parties involved.”
He added that he is looking out for the fans of the league when he reviewed the deal, which saw marquee players change teams.
“This is a clear mandate on my part if I am to continue to uphold the fans’ interest.”
