Nash on the other hand was getting hurt running out on the court from the bench. As much as he was great back in the day, he probably should have retired before we traded for him.
You have to look beyond the past season, look at his age and what typically happens to 7 footers his age.....it is very likely you will see a sharp decline in play and a rise in injuries from him.....as we have started to see.
If he was in his late 20's we could take a chance on him....but unless he takes really low money we can't afford the risk.....it is in no way worth a chance of a meager reward.
