Matt beat me to this.
Avid works just fine with a straight up NAS provided you aren't capturing or rendering to the shared storage during the working day. That changes the index files which causes other users to reindex. Capture and render locally *or* setup shared scratch volumes and use those. Others can see them if necessary, but won't typically have them mounted.

Since you want to use Pro Res, you'll probably use Avid AMA anyhow (so you can stay in Pro Res and not have to ingest as MXF files). If this is the case, Avid works exactly like all the other apps. It treats it as a NAS volume.

For a small shop like you, I wouldn't write off FCP X just yet either. It works well with Xsan and NAS volumes when you use the Sparse Disk Image method. It's been written up a few times and it's very elegant.
