I think it was rumored that he said the same thing to Carter? Or Richards, not really sure but if that's true I would be kinda hesitant. But it's a guaranteed long-term contract, and JvR is not on a discount deal like (imo) Carter/Richards were.
Carter also hid like a baby in Sea Isle after he was traded. I think it's completely reasonable that a GM not give any indication, in most cases, if a player is going to be traded or not. It prevents them from running their mouth and tainting the deal.
