I. Roster changes

This section will include roster updates that occur after September 
12th, 2003: the date of the roster cut off for NBA Live 2004.  I will 
list the team, and then the players that are now on that team.

Players that retire should be reduced to 0 in all ratings, and you may 
want to consider doing the same to players that jumped to Europe.

IV. Version history

Version 1.3 (12/15/03): Added the Ricky Davis trade, the Bonzi Wells 
trade, all of Chicago and Toronto's recent transactions, as well as the 
rest of the minor wheelings and dealings.  Updated the depth charts.

Version 1.2 (11/6/03): Added the Knight/White trade, as well as the few 
other cuts and signings.  I'm expecting Othella Harrington to be dealt 
soon.

Version 1.1 (10/28/03): More cuts and signings.  NBA teams have 
finalized their rosters.  Added a bit more to each section.

Version 1.0 (10/23/03): Gotta add more to the depth charts and player 
positions.  Just posted this as is to get it up there.

Until next time,
