It sounds a little underhanded but If its fair value going back and forth with the picks and the players I think I would be okay with it.
In the first, trade deadline deals, here are a couple of examples
Team A sent Travis D'Arnaud/Rhymer Liriano for Ian Kennedy/Ichiro... Ian Kennedy was then returned to Team B in exchance for a 4th Rd pick (16 team league, 12 majors keepers, 8 minors keepers)
Team C then sent Dante Bichette Jr./Aaron Sanchez/Erik Bedard for Team B's Wainwright... Wainwright was then returned to Team B for a 9th round pick.
Again... this was all agreed to before hand. Not two separate trades.
In the second scenario, the deadline/draft gap, the idea would be to send something like this:
Team A sends Niese/Papelbon to Team D for a 3rd Round pick, then during the gap Team D would send back both players for Justin Nicolino and a 1st Round pick.
For reference, getting a 2nd rounder for Papelbon would be real solid and prospects are obviously a big deal in this league. Hope that's enough info.
