As for Nash, he's incredibly talented, but I haven't been sold on him being the centerpiece of a franchise. It will be interesting to see what kind of season he has playing on a deeper team, in a much more competitive environment.
Have to agree. I think that is a very fair and solid return for an overpaid, overrated winger with a strict NTC.

On a separate note, that package would have been pretty nice for Weber instead of the low 1st round picks we're about to get.
