After August 15th, 2018, a competing team may make an offer for a protected player if they remained unsigned. The team who holds that player’s rights has 48 hours to either match or surpass the offer, in which instances a player would remain with his protected club; or the protected team may decline to match. In these cases, that player would join the new contracted team.
