It doesn't make sense that Lawton is slapping Burke in the face with such an offer. Considering that Toronto would prove to be a valuable ally for possible future contract salary dumps.

Either Lawton is shooting for the stars, or they are working together to drive up the asking price of the early first round picks to prevent any surprises.

Maybe Burke has someone in particular in mind with the 7th overall pick and doesn't want any teams jumping ahead of him.

Obviously, just speculation.
