Default Nash, Lin... what if we sign J Nelson?

Just a hypothesis: Nelson is about to refuse his 2012-13 player option becoming a free agent,a ccording to ESPN. If BC won't be able to get Nash, do you think he could be our plan B? And, above all, would he be a good fit for us?

Just to speculate.

I honestly think our options (our interest) in order are:

Nash
Lowry or Dragic
Calderon

Nelson has sucked so bad lately that I'm not sure he's better than Bayless.

He should take the option.

ESPN says we won't.

He is unrestricted. They can't match any offer than is offered, even if they do he doesn't have to take it.

Calderon is much better.... We'd be worse with Nelson at the point.
He'd be an idiot not to take the option. Hell get a shit contract to be a back up.

Nelson was only somewhat decent because all he did was throw allys to D12

Nelson, much like that whole Orlando team, leached off of DH12. That Magic team was very similar to the Cavs team with LBJ - heavy dependence on one player in practically all aspects of the game.

Nelson is worse than Jose + JB. He's not much of a scorer or a distributor. Absolutely has to be paired with a SG or SF who can handle the ball and/or take pressure off of him being the sole ballhandler/decision maker. His 3PT shooting averages have largely been credited to orlando's system more so than Nelson's talent.
