I get that but it sounds like with the turnover in leadership in Columbus (JD coming in), it seemed clear that Howson was likely gone, regardless of the Nash deal. Nash was a big piece and I would think the new regime would want all assets at their disposal. So maybe my comment is less about Howson and more about the timing of the trade.
