Sure we'll be satisfied in the short run, but the same people who are cheering for him now will be lamenting him when he's 40 or 41, unproductive and hogging the salary cap with 12M. We'd be losing a lot of flexibility in the long run if we pay him 12M a year. I think a 20M 2 Year deal or a 27M 3 year deal for Nash would be better for the Raptors in the long run.
