This was pure Philly blocking the trade competition an option that the Nashville GM would be dumb not to explore and see what he could get for Weber thus forcing Nashville's hand either match or he's ours for 4 1st round picks

Weber and his agent were offered a contract they couldn't refuse so initially this is a gamble on Philly's part that depends on the owners of Nashville if they match or not. This isn't a case of Weber wanting out rather Weber and his agent wanting to get $$$$$
Until we hear anything different, I think this is probably to be the best understanding of the situation.
