From his ESPN chat happening now.
Nash -- traded by the deadline?
Chad Ford (1:10 PM)
Suns have balked in the past because 1. They really love Nash and 2. The offers for Nash haven't blown them away. Of course, it's crunch time now for the Suns. If they don't trade him soon, most likely they lose him for nothing next summer. The key will be -- is Nash willing to agree to an extension as part of a trade? Teams won't give up much if they're renting him for 60 games. To me, the best destination for Nash might be Indiana in a swap for Darren Collison. Suns get a young, talented point guard, Pacers get a player who could get them to the Eastern Conference Finals. If Nash would agree to an extension in Indy, I think the Pacers would have to seriously consider it.
I love the idea if we could do a straight swap and re-sign Nash for an additional 2 years. Opinions?
