Nothing is "stopping him". In fact I think it is a very likely (if not the most likely) outcome.

To play devil's advocate, why is he compelled to do it now?

1. Teams may be will to give more given the current market (few sellers = they don't have a ton of other options) and because they have an immediate shot at the Cup.

2.With how public this has been, this is not going to motivate Nash or increase his morale. At best awkward, at worst creating a very negative (losing) environment.

3. Ensure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they have the most lottery balls for the draft. Reboot around Yakupov.
