What I don't get, is why everybody is saying that if we get Nash, we should amnesty Jose.

Jose is now a good trade piece, after having had a good season under Casey, and being (finally) an expiring contract! Cap calculations aren't made until the beginning of the season, so if we signed Nash, (I think we'd still be under the cap?) and could take back more salary in a trade that sends Calderon out. It may take another prospect, but I'd rather use Jose -from an asset management point of view- than simply amnestying him.
