It leads to a more obvious fact.
There aren't really any facts here... At least not with us. It's all speculation.

Based on the rumors, which were reported on real media outlets, I believe Gillis has been called by at least 8 teams for Luongo but his asking price was something like Luke Schenn + 1st (5th overall) which is why a deal hasn't been done.

A lot of people on this board have assumed that Luongo hasn't been moved because nothing of value has been offered but there's just as good a chance that a deal hasn't gotten done because the asking price is sky high.
