    Steve Nash Demands Trade Behind Closed Doors
    April 19, 2011
    This post was written by Terez on April 19, 2011

    Steve Nash is the face, heart and soul of the Phoenix Suns…or in the words of Suns president for basketball operations Lon Babby, “He is the sun and the moon and the stars of this franchise” Most of their other star players have left for one reason or another, but Steve has always remained, but with one year left on his contract, his seven year stint in the desert looks like its coming to an end…According to my source close to Nash, Steve is asking for a trade so he can contend for the elusive Championship he’s been craving.. “Steve knows he can’t win in Phoenix, they need to rebuild and unfortunately Steve is not getting any younger. Nash wants out simply to win now” said my source…Nash recently said..”It’s pretty simple. There’s no guarantees. You can’t just go out and say, ‘Hey, can you go out and trade me to this team?” Steve reiterated his desire to stay a Sun to save face, but he’s done exactly that, and has given the Suns a list of a few teams he would like to play for next year..Yes he’s 37, but another team can definitely benefit from a guy who has led the league in assists for the fifth time in seven years. Good luck Steve, but the Suns are going to try their damnedest to convince you to stay. -TO

    The Pacers could trade DC + a future 1st rounder for Nash and take back more salary this offseason. I'm just saying... they could.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    He should go to a team so he can win a ring, he deserves one.

    I'm on the side of Steve if this is true. It will be both beneficial from the Suns and Nash, since the Suns can get more assets for their rebuild and Nash can contribute to an already contending team.

    Nash has done everything for the Suns, and right now the Suns have gone a different direction since losing Amare to the free agency. Nash can no longer make them competitive if he's the lone star there. If they want to keep him, the Suns should get better players through trades, although I don't see this happening in the near future.

    Maybe he's the one going to New York instead of CP3?

    I'll be shocked if Nash isn't traded. He's got one year left on his deal and the Suns need to rebuild. Look at this roster:

    http://hoopshype.com/salaries/phoenix.htm

    They're going nowhere fast in the West. Trading Nash for assets would jumpstart the rebuild. They'd have plenty of cap room and a few decent building blocks. Better than letting Nash walk and getting stuck with a bottom 5 roster.

    Could he win a championship there? I think that if he wants to win one he is gonna have to go to the Lakers, maybe Bynum for Nash?

    Lakers or Knicks if I had to guess.

    He'll instantly fit there running D'Antoni offense. But that'll just be Phoenix Suns ver2.0. They'll just be killed in the playoffs when the defense tightens up.

    I think Miami should try to get him as they really need a high-caliber PG to get the others more involved, although there are no good pieces for them to give to Suns.

    Knicks would love him but they have no assets. What could they even offer, Landry Fields and Chauncey?

    I could see the Magic as a possibility to try and keep Dwight Howard.

    Not sure the Knicks have anything else to offer. Portland?

    Nash and Howard would be scary.

    I'm all for Nash chasing a ring, but I'd prefer he do it for a team we only play twice a year.

    Lakers are not a good fit with the triangle (assuming Phil returns). If Phil retires though and the triangle is replaced, I could see it.

    He'd probably go to the Knicks just to play with Amare again.

    Those 2 can turn a team into contenders.

    The Lakers would not give up Bynum for Carmello. Now way they part with him for an aging Nash. I wouldnt even give up one of our young core players for him.

    All the people who killed Carmelo for wanting a trade are just as mad at Nash right now, correct?

    Also, everyone who thinks superstars shouldn't all go to big market teams will be equally furious I hope.

    That would be absolutely nuts.... just saying.

    Nash would not make us a lot better and certainly not an instant contender. I love Nash, but we'd be giving up a piece of our young core and a 1st, no thanks.

    He's 37, 37! let me say that again he's 37!

    Just what exactly is he worth in trade? Two firsts and a player?

    No. There's a distinction between a guy who *might* be at the middle of the prime of his career and a guy who only has a few years left in the league. He and the Suns have run their course. Him leaving now isn't the same as CLE losing LeBron or DEN losing Melo.

    I have to say trading Nash for DC+ 1st round Pick is NO good. Nash is one of my favorite players obviously. I don't wanna trade our future for the past. Nash could make the Pacers even more relevant for 1-2 seasons max, then a retirement. I'd rather stay relevant, well, forever. But DC and our young core will keep us relevant for much much longer.

    I agree; it's too late. If Nash were a few years younger, I'd offer Collison plus whatever else in a heartbeat, but it doesn't make sense now.

    Looking back at it, nobody ever got mad at Charles Barkley for demanding and eventually forcing trades to contenders (not once, but twice) when it became evident the teams he was on were on the decline.

    The same Barkley who ripped on Lebron, a guy who never demanded a trade and simply signed somewhere else as a FA (along with his entire Decision TV special I, suppose).

    Why? Who's qualified to determine when a player is allowed to leave a team or when his career has run it's course?

    Nash has been on the Suns for 7 years, just as long as Melo and LeBron were on their respective teams.
