Time for us to "buy him out" IMO. Having him here puts pressure on MDA to play him. This isn't a team that is close to doing anything of significance this season.... I'd rather use the time to hone younger players that may be able to help us rebuild rather than change the Depends on someone hanging on for a check. Buy him out and be done with it.

He stated that Nash is trying to get into a place where he is healthy enough to play at a high level; not anything new, right...however, me also mentioned if Nash doesn't healthy within the next couple of months, he thinks Nash knows inside, he won't stick around. At least to me, it intimated that Nash might retire during the season, but I might be wrong. Nevertheless, I think if he's not healthy by the Trade Deadline, he is either retiring or traded...

100% will never happen, his back has always given him problems.
