I think thats the point though. If we feel his value is going to get lower then we should trade him now to maximize his current value and make the team better.
To put it numerically: Say Read has a 3 star value currently, but we feel as if his value wont get any higher or may even regress into 2 star value next year. If we can trade him for another 3 star value player now (whos value won't regress or may even get better in the case of a draft pick), or as part of a package for a 4 or 5 star player then thats what we should do, because it would improve our team.
