I don't think that would work. They could agree to a contract on the 24th and file the papers on the 26th. Anaheim would never get the 2nd rounder and they would know that. If you are going to make it conditional, it has to be on the condition that he signs or doesn't sign, rather than when he signs.
Schultz's agent has made it pretty clear that they will talk to a bunch of teams. I think it would be a waste to trade for his rights. Come June 25th, make the best pitch you can and hope he signs here.
