I think he will go to the Mavs after this season. Jason Kidd will retire and he will re sign with his old team. What do you think will happen with him? He has 1 year left on his contact and the Suns also might trade him.

He will find his way to a contender for a few seasons. Plenty of contenders could use exactly what he brings each year so he will be able to find a good fit (like Miami or LA last year)

I think him going back to the Dallas Mavericks would be A good move for him. The Phoenix Suns don't really have that Bright of a future.

And if the Dallas Mavericks are interested in him. It doesn't hurt that they won the championship last year making Steve Nash kind of jelly that they won the whole thing.

I can't see him being traded to the knicks since they don't really have the assets, unless the Suns want Billups for some reason.

I could see him signing with NY next summer though after his contract is up in phoenix.

I could only see this happening if D'antoni gets a contract extension. IF D'antoni is still around, and Nash is still healthy enough to play, i'd say this is almost money in the bank for the Knicks.

True. Didn't even think of that. If no D'antoni, I agree Nash would probably sign elsewhere. I just hope not Miami.

As a Knicks fan, i would hate to see him sign with Miami. As a fan of basketball and a long-time Nash enthusiast, i'd LOVE IT. I think we can both agree Nash would finally get a long deserved ring.

I'm a Suns fan, and Steve Nash is my favorite player so of course it would be great for him to retire wearing the Orange and Purple ..

But, like the post above me, I would love to see him get with the Heat asap because I feel they have the most realistic chance of making it back to the finals and winning it all (depending on the pieces they get, and obv. Nash would be huge) so he can go off in the distance after finally winning his ring .

If D'antoni is still in NY and NY can't get CP3 I imagine Nash is plan b, would allow them to keep their young guys too since Nash likely won't command a max.

Who would have thought Nash would still be playing at an MVP level.

Players must get money from it, LBJ probably doesn't change his number that often because his name is a brand...you don't want to change it too often or it will weaken it's value..Like for me I still think lebron 23, not lebron 6. For example imagine if jordan wore 8,9, 15, 26, and 23, do you that the #23 would be as powerful as it is?

Has anyone thought of the possibility of him staying Phoenix? Nash doesnt seem RING hungry like most of the veterans. He signed that 2 yr extension with phoenix when it was obvious the team was going in the opposite direction (trading Marion, trading Shaq, no indication of wanting to retain Amare).

That would be a good plan B for the Knicks. Sign Nash for about 6-9 mil and then sign a big this season. It would make the Knicks a much more balanced team than just having CP3 and some veteran min to fill the holes.

I took some time this afternoon and looked at what potentially could be out there and it's tough to find a good match:

ATL - Jeff Teague + Magnum Rolle + Kirk Hinrich's Expiring + 1st Round Pick
NYK - Toney Douglas + Landry Fields + Chauncey Billup's Expiring (PHO could dump Frye's long-term contract in this deal)
ORL - Jameer Nelson + 1st Round Pick
DAL - S&T with Barea, Rudy Fernandez + Caron Butler's Expiring
POR - Raymond Felton + Nicolas Batum + 1st

Portland could throw in Roy's contract to help Phoenix salary dump Frye/Childress and then Suns could amnesty him. Where do you think they can get the most value?

Why not?

Nash + Joe Johnson + Josh Smith + Al Horford is definately a contender. Imagine how happy JJ would be going from sharing a backcourt with Jamal Crawford to having Nash back. Just look at his numbers his last seasons in Phoenix.

Portland really hit a stride with Matthews-GForce-Aldridge last year. With Nash running the show, and a returning Camby they would be dangerous as well.

i doubt at 37 years old he will do it with johnson, smith, and horford. but it would be a good team. for how long though ? maybe a one year or two year run..

nash is aging. he is best to go to an aging contender like the the mavs because all those guys on that team are going to retire with in a few years as well. they have a legit chance of winning a title considering they just one won with out him and with an older and less productive jason kid at this piont in his career.

I donno with Atlanta their all good players, but their not great players...I think a contender has to have an elite player to go any where (james,wade, howard, kobe, nowitzki, paul, etc)..Maybe if atlanta traded 2 of the four you mentioned for a star they might be..

They got damn close and really their best chance was when Joe Johnson got injured. At any given time the right chemistry and a team can make a run. If I told you Kidd-Marion-Dirk-Chandler you would have said the same thing. It would be good but probably won't win a title and they are too old. The Heat are still coming together. The Knicks still need to fill out the roster. The Celtics are declining. The East is open. It'd be worth it for a 3 year window.

Revenue from jersey sales is distributed among the players according to time in the NBA, so Nash wouldn't reap the benefits of an increase in his own jersey sales.

Nash on the Knicks = Worst. Defensive. Team. Ever. And I'm a Raptors fan; I know something about appalling defense :D

I want to see the guy win more than anything. I wouldn't really care where he went, I would root for him. Miami is probably the best fit because those two ball hogs and company can play some good defense. On top of that, him and Lebron and Wade can pass the ball pretty well, and Bosh could set screens for the Pick and Roll. If the Knicks get defenders, then they'll be a nice fit too.

ATL - Jeff Teague + Magnum Rolle + Kirk Hinrich's Expiring + 1st Round Pick
NYK - Toney Douglas + Landry Fields + Chauncey Billup's Expiring (PHO could dump Frye's long-term contract in this deal)
ORL - Jameer Nelson + 1st Round Pick
DAL - S&T with Barea, Rudy Fernandez + Caron Butler's Expiring
POR - Raymond Felton + Nicolas Batum + 1st

Portland could throw in Roy's contract to help Phoenix salary dump Frye/Childress and then Suns could amnesty him. Where do you think they can get the most value?

From a Suns fans perspective, here's my take on these trade ideas.

The Atlanta one I would do. It gives us Teague who has potential and a likely #1 pick in the 20's. This gives Atlanta someone to setup Smith and Horford. That would make the Hawks a true threat in the East.

The Knicks one I'm not keen on but if we're going to deal him there, Douglas and Fields are guys I'd want back. I'd actually prefer Shumpart in place of Douglas.

Frye is not someone you throw in a trade. He had his best year last season. He has a very manageable contract and is improving. I'd actually demand talent back for him. Not for a team to simply take him from us.
If we're going to dump salary, it'd have to be Warrick or Childress. Childress makes the most sense for NY as he's a mini Marion.

The Orlando one isn't appeasing. Nelson does nothing for a team that would be in a rebuilding mode. The deal would have to start with Reddick and a pick but I'd tell them I want a future unprotected first. Maybe get it for 2015 and hope Orlando doesn't resign Howard.

The Dallas one wouldn't help the Suns. Unless Barea is willing to take a pay cut compared to what he is going to ask for, it won't help the Suns rebuild. Beaubois would be the centerpiece for a Nash deal to Dallas.

The Blazers deal I would do in a heartbeat but I don't see Portland giving up so much. However, I'm confident he'd sign an extension with them. It's close to his home in BC.
I also think the Suns wouldn't be able to turn down an offer like this. You get a very good replacement in Felton, a very good up and comer in Batum, and a first rounder.

Yea, not a good fit in MIA. They already have two playmakers. Nash would be relegated to spot up 3 point duties, or you have to take the ball out of Lebron's hands for playmaking.

Would be another duplicate talent on MIA

NASH WILL NOT JOIN MIAMI YOU CAN SET IT IN STONE.

He is not getting traded, if he were miami would be the last place suns would think of(unless the heat are giving up bosh). He will retire a sun or end up in NY where he has his summer home. If he does go to new york expect grant hill to follow Nash to balance out the defense a bit.
Nash
Hill/Shumper
Melo
Stat
Defensive C

Fill the rest with mle and vet min players and you have a very competitive team that can hang with and beat ANY team in the nba.


Dream scenario for him to be traded to is okc. James harden+fillers+unprotected picks for nash and grant hill. OKC would win at least one championship with nash and westbrook would be able to take as many shots as he wants with nash controlling the flow of the game. Harden benefits the suns in a lot of ways. First of all he is already a hometown hero from his time at ASU so he would fill up the stadium due to his large fan base. He is young and with a lot of upside, has the potential to be an all star borderline superstar player given the right circumstances. The picks would give us some great talent for the future.

I think that not having that opportunity and being stuck on a team that is rebuilding would be a bigger low blow to him

Dont worry...Everyone will have a shot at Nash in a few years after this contract... He is like wine... He gets better with age... I expect 20/20 seasons from him in his mid 40s Lol

As much as I would like it, I dont see Nash realistically coming to the Heat.

There are much more ties and incentives to go to the Mavs.

Who knows though, but I'd still put money on Nash going to Miami.

And don't forget: once Pat Riley gets a player in a room and starts talking, it's over. (no homo)

A Steve Nash/Dwayne Wade/Lebron James/Chris Bosh/Samuel Dalembert is easily one of the best teams ever. I see him signing with the Heat or Lakers next year.

I think we have a reasonable chance to lure him for small money. Amare, Carmelo, D'antoni, New York, we have a lot to offer.

Honestly believe Nash has way to much pride to go too that organization.

I'd like to see Nash get traded to OKC for Harden.
OKC moves Westbrook to SG and Nash takes over the point.
Harden would be a great start in a rebuild mode for Phoenix.

Interesting, but I think Harden is a bit much to give up for Nash. Harden seems on the verge of stardom, and if he didn't play on a team with Durant & Westbrook he'd probably already be a 20+ ppg guy.
