At least chop out the "easily"... the cap floor is down to $44M... floor teams can retain cap space by trading their own veterans/junk away... the UFA market is likely to be flooded in all directions with players, some decent ones, given that the cap is going down and the teams at the upper end will be squeezed out of making their usual bids... it
to add up to a very long shot that Gomez could be trade bait.
Nothing is 100% impossible, of course, but at the least he'll really need a huge bounceback performance this season, to start with. As soon as you see him start with like 1 assist in the first 10 games, I think you'll know it's safe to cross the longshot trade dream off the list forever.
