I saw someone mention it in the Skype chat and thought it was a intriguing idea. I would think it would work as long as some things are put into place. dealing with cpu generated picks i think we would have to say if someone trades for a 2012 protected pick that teams draft pick for 13 is unavailable until after said team is in the playoffs(or looks like a lock) or after the lottery. if team gets a top 5 pick or whatever the parameters the team would then trade that pick back to the cpu team for the next yrs pick which becomes unprotected. obviously something similar would be attached to user/user trades.
