Floyd Reese writes an interesting article about the teams draft preparations on ESPN.com. Here's is an part,

"A misconception exists regarding draft-day trades. People envision long negotiations in an attempt to create the perfect deal, but negotiations rarely occur prior to the clock starting.

A team will talk before draft day about another team's possible interest in moving up or down. Most franchises would prefer for their trade partner to be under pressure to make a decision, because it increases the chances for a trade to get pushed through."

So, all the trade rumors we're reading today are at most an exploratory phone call, and will depend on many factors to become a reality.
