I don't think you see trades like this because the teams that want to move up aren't willing to pay the asking price of the teams sitting at the pick.

Plus, a lot of top of the draft trades involve teams in the top 10 (see most Florida trades from the last few years). You're not dropping that far, so you don't give up that much. You're asking Columbus to go from #4 to the late 20s. That is a huge drop off in "perceived" talent.

Thus... if a deal is going to get done, the Caps will have to move up to #11 first. Or risk having to overpay.
