After a season of playing with the team, they'd be far more likely to re-sign with them than they would otherwise.
1-That was this summer, when Weber was RFA, when Philly was allowed to negotiate with him. Philly knew Weber had interest.
2-They could have agreed to a deal before the trade
3-The deal didn't go through

There is no way for NYI to negotiate with Edler during the season, without Vanconver completely ruining their relationship with him by saying they want to trade him. It's a completely different situation. There is no way to know if Edler would sign long term, it's tampering.
