Arbitration meetings conclude on July 31.
A decision in the case must be made by the arbitrator within 48 hours of the meeting’s conclusion.
The arbitrator has the option to hand out one or two-year awards.
Teams will then have 48 hours (or 48 hours after the team's last hearing is concluded if they have multiple players) to accept the contract or walk away, immediately making the player an unrestricted free agent.
Note: A team that requests arbitration does not have walk-away rights.
