    Report: Suns Willing To Consider Trading Steve Nash

    The Phoenix Suns are lagging at 9-14, once again on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture looking in from 12th place. Steve Nash has nevertheless maintained that he’s not seeking a trade — but according to Ken Berger of CBS, the Suns would pursue a deal if Nash wanted it.

    “It’s really on him in terms of what he wants to do or not do,” a source told Berger.

    Nash said a month ago that he wasn’t interested in a trade, insisting “it’s not my style” when asked. But as the Suns head toward the draft lottery again and Nash inches toward the end of his two-year, $22 million contract in Phoenix, the trade rumors have begun swirling once again.

    Nash turns 38 on Tuesday. He’s averaging 14.5 points and 9.9 assists per game for the Suns this season.

    I'd be more interested in pursuing him in free agency, where we don't have to give up anything.

    In this short season we have a chance to win now, we are contenders or close to contenders with him I think.

    The possibility of Nash signing with the Pacers as a FA is dependent on what happens with Deron Williams before the Trade deadline.

    If Dwight decides to go to NJ...DWill will likely stay in NJ. If Dwight doesn't go to NJ...then DWill will likely be gone...with a likely destination being NY.

    I can only see 2 scenarios where Nash doesn't end up in NY via FA ( which is one of the few Teams that I think would be competing for Nash's services ).....(1) If DWill doesn't end up in NY ( which opens up the need for the Knicks to get a PG like Nash ) or (2) if the Knicks decide to fire D'Antoni ( for whatever reason ).

    depends on what we would have to trade, the only think I would trade is George Hill/Darren Collinson, otherwise we destroy our depth.

    I see the NY thing, given his history with D'antoni and Amare. However, at the moment, we are a much better team then New York. We should also be under the cap still, meaning we can offer more than MLE money, which is the most New York can offer. Plus the Larry Bird factor.

    I'm not saying its a sure thing, but I don't think its out of line to say we might have a realistic shot. We can outbid the capped out teams. If we look like a team that's a piece away from contending, I could see us being on his short list. Nash doesn't strike me as a guy who cares about playing in a big market.

    I hope they trade him to a contender (or someone who would contend with him)

    Nash deserves that. He's past the point where you'd get a ton of value for him, so be nice Phoenix. No sending him to Washington or something..

    Money isn't a concern for him....if it's anything...it's the ability to compete for a championship. I agree with you, unless the Knicks make a major move that would significantly change the make up and depth of this Team....I just don't see how the Knicks can make it to the next level. They are more of a NBA2k12 Team that is built to win an imaginary Championship then a real NBA Team that can win a real NBA Championship.

    Eh, doesn't sound like anything has changed. Nash won't ask for a trade, Suns won't trade him unless he asks. Still stuck in a holding pattern there.

    Call me crazy but the Knicks would be pretty damn good with Nash at the point, if he is a free agent there is not doubt that he would end up in NY, with his best friends Baron D and Amare there plus he loves Mike D.

    Youre only half crazy.

    Theyd be phenomenal offensively.

    Defensively? What a nightmare

    QFT - no point of even getting excited about the possibility. Nash isn't the sort of selfish star player that would ask for a trade, and Phx won't trade him unless he asks.

    They almost made it to the finals with Nash, Amare and Marion, I'm pretty sure they have a better chance in making it to the finals with Amare, Melo, Chandler and Nash.

    I wouldn't give up a long term asset in a trade but I think he'd be a great pick up this summer as a free agent. Getting Nash on a short term, high dollar contract would make sense for both parties. He can only have a couple of good years left and won't be looking for a long term contract anyway. We could sign him while still using Roy's cap hold, then give Roy his contract. When Nash's contract expires we have the money to extend Paul George. We might be able to bring in Nash and another free agent like Kaman before signing Roy. We'll have about 35 mil to spend before hitting the L.T. Spend 18 mil between Nash and Kaman, and save the rest for Roy and filling out the roster. There is a bright spot to waiting until the summer to sign Roy. His cap hold is only 3.6 mil. which gives us room to be more aggressive in the free agent market while still holding onto Roy.

    Taking away all financial and asset factors, the thought of him running the break with Paul George is

    Nash makes everybody he plays with look better. The Pacers would get a lot more easy baskets with him on the floor.

    Can somebody provide some more details about Nash's defense? I just hear people say it's bad. Is it worse than Collison's?

    I guarantee there are high schoolers in the city of Indianapolis who can defend NBA level guards more effectively than Nash has been able to at any point in his career.

    Collison is an average NBA level defender, Nash isnt as bad of a defender as people think by there are very basic things he just doesn't so defensively. Collison is a much better defender than Nash
