View Full Version : Nash headed to e.c?

ESPN NBA analyst Ric Bucher told NBA Today Podcast host Ryen Russillo Monday afternoon that Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash’s name is swirling around the trade rumor mill.

In fact, when Russillo asked for some potential names been mentioned in trade rumors other than Carmelo Anthony, Bucher answered emphatically: “Steve Nash. Steve Nash probably is No. 1.”

Here’s what Bucher said about the Nash rumors:

“I personally feel like I may have overestimated where they are, my belief in Nash to take any spare parts and make it work. I may have overestimated that.

They just don’t have what they had previously and the feeling is that you’re going to have a distinct two camps (in the Western Conference), the haves and the have-nots. Depending on where Phoenix is and in which camp, they may say ‘you know what we need to go in a different direction.’ If you’re going to move Steve Nash, you have to move him now rather than late to get something out of him.

It’s tricky because again we’re talking about a business decision and Steve Nash is a great draw in Phoenix and he’d be a great draw anywhere.”

Ok. Nash is a class act who clearly is a top notch pg this season capable of bringing a team deep into the playoffs. The suns wouldn't slap him in the face and send him to a team going nowhere, but to a city of his choice; as along as the penny pinching suns org gets value and cash. We all know their owner is cheap... Nash said b4 that he'd like to end his career in TORONTO or NEW YORK. The raps have the TPE from the bosh deal, young players and expiring contracts. Knicks have players, STAT, D'antoni ,the city and the whole melo issue; could be a great fit for Captain Canada until the CP3 touchdown.. This could stunt rebuilding plans in Toronto 2. Ya'll smell the fire? something's up... You guys really know basketball on this site,, what you think...

i hope he goes to T.O..... Houston has the knicks pick, so go somewhere else nash

11-10-2010, 12:54 PM
He should go to the Knicks... I think that'd be kinda cool... I love watching him go pick and roll with Amare. Plus he'd make Chandler, who is already a beast, so much better. On top of that, it draws more attention to possibly sway Melo to go there. But we'll see.

Toronto is the best bet to make a deal because we have the trade exception + expiring contracts we can give up.

1)orlando would be the best fit for nash. nelson+gortat for nash.

2)new york. they would just be doing a favor for him hear, though, ultimately it wont be. curry(expiring)+toney douglas+ future pick for nash

3)Philly.just my personal idea that would be worth it for the suns. iggy+holiday for nash+hill

see thats thing as fan of the guy id want him to play on my team, but i would also like to see him win a ring before he goes out and he isnt gonna do that here or in ny.

it would be great for attendance, but like the op said, it will hurt our chances at a rebuild. if steve nash comes to the raps, we aint getting a top 5 pick for sure.

I like the idea of Nash and Grant Hill to Orlando. As much as I think the Knicks want him most, Nash deserves a shot at the title with his few years left and Orlando would give him the best chance. Hill is also on his farewell tour and giving a lift to a team he left short due to injury would be a nice way for Hill to go out.

I don't think the Suns would trade him to a Western Conference team at all.

since im an orlando fan im praying any BIG name gets traded to orlando daily cause where a BIG name away from REALLY being a force

with that being said i have noticed steve nash hasnt been the same this year


now i have a question to those suns fans or those who watch suns game on the regular

is steve nash on the decline??

or is it the pieces around him thats not allowing steve nash to have a normal steve nash season???

because if hes on the decline theres no reason for orlando to try this

I don't know why, but lately I'm starting to favor Nash going to a place where he has a better than average shot of winning a championship. I don't think it's likely, but it would be nice.

This.

Obviously I would want Nash to play for my team. But not at the cost of the future and a shot at a talent infusion from next year's draft. Acquiring Nash would typify the bandaid approach that has killed Toronto for a long time.

Nash in Orlando would be ideal. Dwight Howard can help cover him defensively, while they could have a perimeter player to take over offensively and get everyone involved. Good place for Nash to have a shot at Championship too.

Hell no to #3. I like #1 though, a lot.

king4day
11-10-2010, 02:06 PM
The knicks deal (not one that was offered, just one the suns fans like) is Tony Douglas and Anthony Randolph for Nash.

There is 0 chance the Suns trade him for an exception. We would be losing a mega draw in Phoenix. We need hope to be able to somewhat replace that. Losing Nash for nothing would start a huge downward spiral that we don't neeed and can easily avoid.

Mikey Roxx
11-10-2010, 02:08 PM
Nash goes only if he wants to. That said, I'd send him to New York or Orlando. NY has more players that I'd like to have on the Suns, but Orlando has a better chance of winning a title with him. They wouldn't short-change us on a trade, either.

yep. It may need to center around VC's large expiring deal. Orlando can insert Reddick into the starting lineup, and try and pry a SG off someone.

newbs001
11-10-2010, 03:00 PM
Nash to NY would likely mean no Melo, since that would eat a significant chunk of cap for next season. Doesn't Nash make somewhere around 12-15 mil next year? Even if remotely possible, which I don't believe it is, I can't see the Knicks pulling the trigger on that without concrete proof Melo is not going to NY.

IversonIsKrazy
11-10-2010, 03:01 PM
As a raps fan, not sure if I want him or not. I mean, obviously he'd make us a lot better this season, but we've been mediocre for the past 5 years, that I just WANT to rebuild.

I want to see Nash win a ring. Orlando would be intriguing. A TRUE pg for Dwight would do wonders

Yeah I was going to say that. If the Magic can reach a deal with the Suns, that would make so much sense for Orlando. I know someone else mentioned this too but I think he could be a nice fit in Atlanta as well

But again, Gortat doesn't have the prettiest contract so I don't think a rebuilding team would want a deal built around him

Hawkeye15
11-10-2010, 03:06 PM

If the Suns are trading Nash, they will want an expiring and a pick. Gortat is not worth the investment, especially when they think so highly of Lopez

Rivera

gortats contract isnt big enough if we did a deal soley around gortat we would have to give up prolly 3 more players which isnt happenin

if orlando made any deal for any superstar VCs expiring deal certainly has to be involved just to get the money dollars equal


the question is if we trade VC and started reddik would pietrus leave stan van gundys dog house? or would stan keep him there?

ain't nash making 11-12? his contract is two years and 22 mi..
melo is going to the knicks. either a trade or free agency. book it.
so the magic better get nash, cause it was chris paul and his brother who made the big 3 comment at melo's wedding.

Ok number one, the deal i would want for Nash is to New York for Toney Douglas and Anthony Randolph.

Number two, believe it or not Knick fans, Nash would make your team better then Carmelo would, without question. Theres zero doubt in my mind. Nash would continue his thing with Amar'e and make every single other player on the Knicks much much better. Danilo Gallinari will become a ****ing star with Nash giving him the ball. You trade Douglas and Randolph for Nash right now and he instantly get home court advantage. Heat, Magic, Celtics, Knicks. Yes, even ahead of the Bulls. Thats how much better Nash makes a team. Think about the rosters that Nash and Amare have taken to 55+ win seasons. The knicks have players on there roster that can fit in great

Carter, Nelson, Orton and first rounder pick for Nash, Turkoglu, Frye.

Phoenix get PG replacement in Nelson, young prospect in Orton, first round pick as compensation for losing their franchise player. Orlando takes on the extra years of Turk and Frye while shipping Carter to give Phoenix some long term financial relief to aid in the rebuild.

It would be nice to get Nash even if he is 36. But based on what each team has to offer and the contracts of the players. I could not see a trade happening where both sides walk away content. Orlando just needs a Kobe or Melo kind of guy. VC hasn't been able to do that.

The only reason he isn't, is because his mom's sexual escapades with Mr. West would get blown up in the media.

Who cares anyway, it's over. Nash lives in NYC in the off-season, he has a great relationship with Mike D, and he can play with Stat again. Don't hate before thinking it through. It's not like we think KD or Dwight will come here after their contracts end.

with that being said i have noticed steve nash hasnt been the same this year


now i have a question to those suns fans or those who watch suns game on the regular

is steve nash on the decline??

or is it the pieces around him thats not allowing steve nash to have a normal steve nash season???

because if hes on the decline theres no reason for orlando to try this

If he went to Orlando I guarantee he would be having a much better season than he is now. He is forced to score more then he would like, with the loss of amare. And I think his assists are down just because the chemistry isn't their yet. Although the last 2 games they look normal. I think he is on the decline a bit, but hes still a top3-5 pg.

He's not getting traded.


"Steve's not going to be traded, that I can tell you," Gentry said. "If he's getting traded I'm going along with him."

"All the guys on the coaching staff are going to make sure that it doesn't happen. I don't think Lon and Lance are going to let it happen. So who the hell is going to trade him? Not Robert, I know that."

The head coach didn't only address the issue in general terms. Gentry went as far as calling out a specific rumor from Sports Illustrated.

"If you're talking about the guys in Sports illustrated, then great," he said. "It's great the way they fantasize about everything. They write about this trade and that trade and half the time you couldn't do it anyways. Steve is here. He's the face of our franchise and he's here."

Nash to orlando would be siiiick!! dwight would be unstopable. he would finally have someone on his team who has court vision cuz seriously jameer sucks... all he has to do is throw it up for dwight to go get it and he cant even do that.

I like the idea of Nash and Grant Hill to Orlando. As much as I think the Knicks want him most, Nash deserves a shot at the title with his few years left and Orlando would give him the best chance. Hill is also on his farewell tour and giving a lift to a team he left short due to injury would be a nice way for Hill to go out.

I don't think the Suns would trade him to a Western Conference team at all.

Deserves...??? :confused:

How does he deserve more than anyone else in the NBA.. ?? I just don't understand this sentiment at all.. How about earning it.. Just a thought..

Nash and class don't belong in the same sentence. Lost all respect for the can when he disrespected Vic 'The Brick' Jacobs when Los Angeles was toying with Phoenix in the playoffs.

Btw is Bucher the same stiff who called himself a 'Kobe confidant'? The same hack who once proclaimed, 'I talked to Kobe, and he reiterated that he'll never lace 'em up in L.A. again'?

More **** comes out of his mouth than out of his ***.

Everyone has a person that they'd like to smack. For me its Bayless, Sapp, all the Espn hacks, Baldinger, bucher, adande, the other black guy on around the horn, moss, deangelo hall, Barney, The Teletubbies, and a couple others that I don't remember at this moment so I'll edit this post later.

Steve Nash would look better in a Magic uniform and is a better fit in Orlando.

Jesus,

I'm so sick of everyone thinking all players want to go play for the NY Knicks.

Just give it up already. If that was true, then LeBron James would be wearing a Knicks jersey right now.

haha so because LBJ didn't go there that means no one wants to play in NY? You think NY isn't Melo's top choice? You think Nash wouldn't love to play at home back with D'antoni & Amare. I'm not saying EVERYONE wants to go to NY, but I just don't get all the NY hate. I mean NY has been bad for a decade...why such anger?... Usually the best teams get all the hate (LAL & MIA)...but NY? why?

I'd like to see Nash win a championship more than anything. I'm a huge fan of him both as a classy player and bringing back the legitimacy of the pass first point guard. If he were to get traded, I'd like to see him go to a team like orlando.

If he can't be put on a contender, I wouldn't mind him on a team like the Knicks, to be reunited with Amare and D'Antoni.

As for my Raps, we're desperate for a PG, especially one that can run an uptempo system, so I see him being a great fit, but this year we need to be focused more on the draft than wins, so bringing in nash is counterproductive at this point.

If Nash is available then Hill and JRich are probably available too. I wonder where they could go. I would love JRich on the Raptors.

Would like to see Nash come to the hawks, he seems to still have a good relationship with Joe johnson.

The best we could do is offer Jamal Crawford(10 million expiring), Jeff teague, and a couple of 1st rounders.

since im an orlando fan im praying any BIG name gets traded to orlando daily cause where a BIG name away from REALLY being a force

or is it the pieces around him thats not allowing steve nash to have a normal steve nash season???

I don't think he's lost anything offensively. He's having to force it more (like in 05-06) and has to get used to a lot of new players (and vice versa).

How could you class Baron Davis with Nash and Kidd? That's pretty disrespectful.

Do you want to elaborate because I can’t see your point?

If we traded Nash I'd be very surprised if we also traded J-Rich. He's playing well at the moment and is our best scorer. Trading Nash wouldn't be blowing up the team, especially after all the off-season moves we made.

If he wants to win a ring and the Suns want him to win a ring, he'll go to Orlando... NY sounds more likely though.

I personally feel like I may have overestimated where they are, my belief in Nash to take any spare parts and make it work. I may have overestimated that.

They just dont have what they had previously....

Gee, maybe what they had previously had a lot to do with Nash's two (2!) MVPs. I think a lot of writers overestimated Nash's ability to take any spare parts and make it work. Geez.... I wish more of those sportswriters would cop to this.

Being a canadian I would love Nash to be in his home country, But being a canadian who is not a raptors fan has me just wanting the canadian boy Nash to win a ring. Best bet for that is to send him to Orlando, as Stated Howard can more then make up for Nash's short Cummings on defence and can get Orlando's Three point shooters open looks in games like their in the practice gym and if you thought Nash and Amare ran the pick and roll well, Game over Ladies and Gentleman.
