General manager Stan Bowman, with a self-described “position of strength” when it comes to trading, is willing to wait out what happens this week and into free agency, which opens next Sunday. “I think everybody was focused on the draft today,” Bowman said Saturday after drafting eight players. “There was a lot happening, rapid-fire picks and not as much leading up to it. “The discussions I did have, everyone agreed that you don’t need to try to jam a trade in in the next half-hour before we get going. But we had some brief discussions with a few teams. We all agreed that it will probably pick up as the weeks go on. There will be movement with players around the league over the next two weeks.”
