Im not ripping Howson for the scale of the deal. I'm ripping him because it looks like the best offer he had for a guy who didnt want to play for him.

Sather offered a lot...more than I would have, but even if Sather makes that trade, he can still field an elite team with added elite player.

If Howson doesnt make that trade, he doesnt have cap space, he doesnt double his prospect pool and he doesnt add quality to his franchise. He also doesnt add a 1st rounder for an already deep draft.

If he trades Nash on Draft Day, I'll bet he never sees an offer as close to what Sather allegedly offered him today
