This is the reason why I think we could see one or more RFAs moved before June 20 (draft) for picks. Trading a player before June 20 nets you a specific pick in the draft, whereas July 1, you have no idea what you will get in return. A top 5 pick is a helluva lot better than two first round picks in the mid 20s.
