    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.
