Besides, the whole "I don't want to make ____ team better" is a loser mentality. You make trades that best improve your team, and if you can get a better return for your player by one team, that's the one you make IMO. It carries a little more weight when it's directly within your division, but as I mentioned earlier, that wasn't the case with Chicago or Minnesota.
The problem is that its hard to figure out intangibles.

And if you make a mistake in your division, than its obvious to everyone and their dog when said player puts you out of the playoffs...

High risk low reward for marginal increases in trade value. There is little upside making the teams you are directly playing aga9inst better.
