When does the buyout market end?

The buyout deadline — officially known as the playoff eligibility waiver deadline — is March 1. That is the final day a player can be waived by one team and remain eligible to play in the postseason for another.

If a player is waived after March 1, he can still play for another team in the regular season, but he is no longer eligible to play in the playoffs.
