Looks like there'll be more sellers than buyers in my opinion. I think players are going to go for less than usual or be fewer trades. Also it's worth noting that this is a deep draft this year (For real this time) so teams are more likely to hold on to 1st round picks.
Personally, I don't buy into this "west is so much better" media bandwagon that has been going on for years. At one point it was maybe sort of true, but there are so many holes in the west it's not funny. Even the high-end teams are quite beatable. There are maybe two or three that are scary, but there's a whole lot of mediocrity out there.
