No, it doesn't. The only reason to avoid trading within the division is that your GM is afraid of looking bad if the player that he traded plays well against your team. That's a terrible reason to sabotage your own team by taking an inferior return. Any GM who refuses to trade within their division should be summarily fired and replaced with somebody who doesn't blatantly put their own interests above the team's.
