isn't that kind of how trade talks work though? do you think only the team that acquires a player has expressed interest? Its not unreasonable to think that if a useful player is available that the majority of GMs have inquired about the cost of said player. Hell its not even unreasonable to think that most teams inquire about good players that aren't available.
