It’s no secret that the Phoenix Suns aren’t going anywhere this year. If point guard Steve Nash wants to win a championship before he retires, he’s going to have to do it somewhere else.
So far Nash has not requested or even hinted at wanting a trade, he’s too loyal to his teammates and the Suns organization for that. But there are teams that have expressed interest in the All-Star point guard.
“It’s been said a couple of times that [Dwight] Howard’s camp has asked the Magic to pursue specific players and it’s being reported that Phoenix’s Steve Nash is the latest name added to the list.
Nash told reporters last night he understood he could be traded before the March 15th trade deadline, but was again clear he is not asking for a trade and feels it would be disrespectful to his teammates he loves to jump ship now.
Suns sources continue to say they would do a new two-year deal for Nash which is likely why he is staying so loyal, however it is clear that Orlando and several other teams including the Portland Trail Blazers have eyes for Nash.”
If the Magic think landing Steve Nash in Orlando will help Dwight Howard stay, then they should do everything in their power to get him. I would have thought Portland would be pretty happy with the core they have right now. Even though they aren’t winning as much as they should, they have a very talented young team that I don’t think they should give up on yet.
I was a Suns fan for a long time, and absolutely love Steve Nash. I would like to see him go for a ring with a team other than Phoenix, and I’m sure others would too. The Suns gave him his shot, and it didn’t work out, he deserves a chance somewhere else before he retires.
It’s something he’d never ask for but might be beneficial to everyone involved if it happens.
