I would say no to trading but would be willing to hear arguments as to why there should be. I can't imagine anyone drafting 3 players from a FA draft.
FA draft- yes
same-as-rookie order- yes
random- no, as thrifty said, "We should still be trying to make the worse teams better for parity. Or at least not hurting them."
trading in FA draft- yes.
1) nothing wrong with more options, even if they aren't exercised;
2) there are teams with few/no picks this year and next. They need to fill out their roster, and blowing priority slots to do so seems nonsensical/unfair.
