The problem with this is that the player has no control over whether or not he gets traded, and therefore no control over whether he ever gets the right to negotiate a salary without salary cap restrictions. A more likely scenario is that players won't count toward the cap as long as they go for a certain amount of time without exercising their free agent rights (regardless of whether or not they have been traded).
