The new money comes from 3 things:

1. New minority owners. Local. Want to see the team improved, ready to spend to do it.
2. New TV deal. Long term. Brought a lot of money to the franchise.
3. PK is opening his own wallet more, because he (and JR) believe this team is getting closer to competing.

If the Canes grab Nash, even if it costs the farm, they're competing.
