does the interview say when the trade offer was given?
Deal was offered after the 2000-01 season, that was the year the Raptors were 1 shot away from the conference finals. Hardly the time to completely blow up the team. Nash also is 3 years older than Vince and at the time had his first season with more than 10 ppg and more than 5.5 apg. Antonio Davis just had a playoff where he averaged 16 ppg and 11 rpg.

The deal looks bad now, but at the time if the Raptors made that deal I believe there is a strong possibility that the Raptors end up moving to another city.
