In Callahan's case I don't think so. And the chances of another then coming around to do the same to you increase as well.
I guess it all depends how valuable a team thinks Callahan is. He had 48 pts in 60 games last year- I believe that if he played 82 games he would've had over 60 points. So maybe if a team thinks he can consistently put up ~60 points, plus his intangibles, then maybe they're willing to lose a first round pick for him. Idk, just thinking out loud...
