I think Gillis is bluffing. If he does have a deal in place, why go and leak it to the media? Why not just sit quietly and make the trade without seeking attention. Why go and jeopardize this "other" team who is trying to resolve their player situation and ruin this potential deal by doing this? Gillis is usually tight lipped about transactions, and this leak seems like an act of desperation.

I think this is a way of trying to get teams that are already in negotiations to improve their low offers. I believe there isn't a deal in place.
