Schultz is 22 and had a great career in college to go on top being a free agent, meaning those teams didn't have to give up a thing for him. Not only that but they were guaranteed to get him on a ELC.

Getting a player like that for free has great appeal. However, I highly doubt that any team would have traded a Neal type player for him.
