I think the trades for "negotiating rights" were pretty small. Usually a 3rd/4th round DP, or maybe a conditional 2nd if the player is signed.
We got a conditional pick for Wiz. Cannot remember if we traded it but if it is something like a 5th round pick for a players rights that pick can turn into Charles Hudon. Which is a pretty good return for a guy who is packing his bags.
