Look at what happened here and other forums....can you imagine the PR nightmare of not 'looking like' you're going all out for Nash?

I strongly agree it was the right move but maybe the 3 year on the Landry deal is still a stretch...
One would think that 7 mill In the 3rd year would be enough?

lowry for davis and ross

then signing fields would great for us.
and then trade caldy + 2nd rd for marion and beaubois

and you have a nice team to build on, and grow all together.

Don't forget marion was a favorite of casey in dallas, and also he knows the system.

lowry or dragic i don't care, even LIN. get a new pg, then we willall be done with the crazy FA era and take the right way to build a solid team... young with some vet whom care about their team.

Free agency opened 3 days later, i think we could have lived with it. that and koreen, grange, smith would have all confirmed they were still all in on nash.

We could of freaking had Drummond here if it wasn't for this doofus. No competent, even bottom tier GM would make their pick based on Nash. Just a failure. This is embarrassing for BC.

Us picking Ross over Drummond was actually received pretty well. Drummond has issues. Which is why he fell so low. He dropped like a stone after being talked about as the possible #1 pick not that long ago.

When your a bottom tier team in the league, I'm sorry you don't have the luxury for drafting based on needs and fit. You draft best talent available. 0 excuses.

Add JB to that seeing as how Houston doesn't really have a PG.

Agreed. There are those things called trades which can be made.

Is it now? They have a similar player to ED in Patterson already. Ross was projected to be drafted 12th or later (Houston had the 12th pick by the way). Houston will need a PG in some form/capacity as they'll deal their PG who is solid overall and Goran is a UFA. Let's put this into perspective, houston got the 18th pick for Budinger, who is a prospect that is on a similar level to ED. Lowry, much like Bargs early in the season, was looking like an all star.

personally I would rather give a top 3 protected pick for next year, that all those assets that we have. If they have so many PF what is the point of trading them Ed as well then? might as well make it JJ and Bayless and a second rounder or something

ED has more value though than JJ. JJ + JB + 2nd rounder for Lowry? Are you a Lakers or Knicks fan?

Also, from another board I'm on:

"Worst of all is that good chunk of our insecure and stupid fanbase will likely boo Nash and disown him if he doesn't sign with us. Like he owed something. He's done enough and is still the GM of our national team. He's still a smart guy, and understands that being Canadian isn't very relevant at all to wins, especially with our flawed roster. "

alright then make it ed and and JB, or w.e it is, or make it a future first, I would prefer if we jstu did a top 3 protected first for lowry, throw in a player, on of ed, jj, or jb if needed. I am confident we will make playoffs next year, so the pick wont be worth as much. And to me nash never really made a difference, if he signed, great, if he didnt it didnt realy matter
