the only way other teams get a crack at Nash is if he requests a trade. otherwise they have no reason to trade him. he re-upped with columbus, with a NTC, even though they were in the ******* and have been his entire career save 1 4 and out playoff run. he's aware of his plight and probably won't be requesting a trade anytime soon, so columbus knows they wont have to trade him if they don't want to short of a full rebuild, and even then probably not. And the trade for Carter pushed any sort of urgency for a full rebuild back at least a few years.

If anything, I would say Carter would be traded before Nash. No doubt he's looking at whats going on right now and he's not happy. His best friend is in sunny LA on a cup contending team. his old team is doing much better than the one he's on now. Now hes in columbus with a 1-9-1 team. granted, he's been injured most of the time, but he can't be happy. I could see him requesting a trade by the end of the season, but even then Howson won't relent, at least not for awhile.

tl/dr:
1. Nash knows what he got himself into
2. Carter would be traded before Nash
3. Carter won't be traded for awhile
