Why would Brass sign this? He seemed to be sitting in the cat'sbird seat this year - if he does well the whole year he can command the $4-5 million range; if he gets hurt he falls back on the flashes of potential he showed last year; if he doesn't meet expectations, write it off to a sophomore slump.

Does anyone else think that he might have been influenced by Nash - signing for slightly less to keep the cap hit down, maybe enable the team to sign the other youngsters and maintain team continuity & chemistry?

Two guys, leading by example. I like what I'm seeing.
