If Buffalo put Van on the block, I think it's fair to guess that a lot of teams would be interested in acquiring him and would offering better packages than B prospect + late 1st/2nd.
Consistent over the course of a season I meant, not career wise. He is very streaky, always starts well and dies down. And no, not a lot of teams. At 7mil for next year when the cap goes down, you'll be limited in competitive teams with the cap room to take him on. Assuming Buffalo is getting back futures and not a roster player. A deal I would see for him would be a very good prospect+mid-late first (depending on the team)+cap dump
