    If we won't get 1st 2nd or 3rd draft pick, i would be not against trading our pick to land star player for example Josh Smith. Atlanta should be given up on him and the team lack of motivation, they need changes, so we could offer our pick and maybe Jose, ED/Amir and/or JJ for Josh, and after that sign Nash as free agent

    Valanciunas/Gray
    Bargnani/Amir (or ED)
    J. Smith/Kleiza (JJ?)
    DeMar/Forbes
    Nash/Bayless

    Then we could draft SG/SF with our second round pick or take a vet shooter (not Butler), or even Sonny Weems.

    I'm not with the program for Nash (the second best point guard in the league last year), especially if you simply amnesty Calderon (the fifth best point guard in the league last year).

    You're trading a 38 year old for a 30 year old.
    The 38 year old has 4 more assists per game ... but 3 more turnovers.
    Both are above average shooters; the 38 year old being better.

    If you were trying to win this coming year, you might take a one year gamble on the 38 year old to push an otherwise strong team over the top. If your window is 2-3 years out, and you already have a strong PG, why look to do a marginal upgrade to fix what isn't broken?

    Sorry Nash - go get your championship somewhere else - and come back here when you retire!

    The big difference between those guys and Nash is Nash makes those around him better. I think that is very important.

    Also Iggy makes $3M more than Nash would at $10M and Granger about the same.

    I could live with Batum at $10M but it would be a huge gamble based on continued development and consistency.

    Jeff Green at $10M is scary, in my opinion.
    I'd be okay with Batum at 7 - 8 million
    and Green at 6 - 7 million

    Why is Batum a gamble? He's gotten better every year. It's not like he played sensationally in a contract year after a bunch of mediocre ones. I'd throw series cash at him.

    The reality of it all is Colangelo needs to insure his own survival and signing Steve Nash is the best way to accomplish that without question.
    I guess thereinlies the problem.
