We don't know all the details but I would have traded him after the playoffs. But it seems pretty clear that he would be traded at some point out of Vancouver as he had reportedly said he wanted out.. right after SC finals game 7.

But this is just speculation. We probably never know what was really going on.
True. Maybe Vancouver had no other chance to deal him, so they had to pull the trigger.
