Despite the Suns' struggles, Steve Nash has yet to express an interest in being traded, league sources said. But the organization will try to accommodate Nash's wishes if the 37-year-old foundation of the franchise decides he'd like a chance to compete for a championship with a contender. "It's really on him in terms of what he wants to do or not do," a person with knowledge of the situation said. Nash, who turns 38 next week, will be an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Yeah, but he's already said that he won't personally request a trade. Suns management has to make that decision themselves. Steve will never say it himself.

Hope you guys realize the only way we can trade for him is if Chandler, Melo, or Amar'e are involved. Otherwise we won't have the contracts to match up in a trade...

3 teams that would make great sense in acquiring Nash midseason: Indiana, Philly and Portland assuming none have to give up too much. Switch Nash with any of those 3 teams starting pgs and all three are absolute contenders.

if nash wants to be traded and Portland goes after him for a rental, watch out...that team will be nasty good. All they need is someone to ditch the ball to their shooters and they are going to give anyone a run for their money. They are the only team in the NBA that have more than 5 players averaging double digit scoring a game including some bench players...having someone with his assist/pass ability is going to really open up that floor even more for them.

And someone like Aldridge who is averaging a double/double has to be salivating at the opportunity to add a assist guy like Nash to the roster.

"But the organization will try to accommodate Nash's wishes if the 37-year-old foundation of the franchise decides he'd like a chance to compete for a championship with a contender."

Cop out excuse. They know Nash would never demand a trade like that. Nash would rather suck it up and play for his fellow teammates and fans in Phoenix than to ask for a trade.

Collison for Nash?

Along with maybe a 1st round pick, sure. My God would Indiana be scary with Nash.


Why would philly want Steve Nash...The guy is my favorite player but we are a defensive minded team and we have Jrue.

I was unaware that one player could totally take away a mindset. Believe me, this is coming from a person who has witnessed defensive first teams throughout his life in the Chicago Bears and Bulls, but being obsessed with simply one side of the ball will get you nowhere. Aside from the 04 Pistons, virtually every great team needs to be at least top 10 at both sides of the ball.

Adding a questionable defender at the pg position will hardly hurt your defense, but it will certainly make your offense that much scarier.

In the end, it's a win-now move. If you and Philly FO seem to put more value in Jrue's upside. So be it. Personally I don't see it whereas I think Nash is still a near elite player for at least this season and next, putting Philly firmly in contender territory. If you get that opportunity, usually you go for it.

But hey, that's just me.

He's playing so well that he's hurting us at the moment. The Suns need to rebuild, and we are winning too many games to give us a good shot at a top 3 pick in 2012.

We need to trade him.

The Suns are in the mess that they are in now from trading away picks and not extending/re-signing stars. We need to rebuild and we need to keep our picks.

I'll be here all week. Don't forget to tip your server.

Seriously though, I don't think Indiana believes in Collison or they wouldn't have been in the Rondo-Paul three way trade rumors. It really all depends on how much Indiana wants to win right now, versus being a playoff team for the rest of the decade. And Nash may find the same problem with Roy Hibbert that he had with Shaq, although Roy can pop out to 18ft he's still best when he's on the low block and thus clogging the paint.

Multiple picks are fine, even if they are late 1st round. Trading Nash will be addition by subtraction since without Nash we’ll have a better shot at a top 3 pick in 2012. There’s no point in us keeping Nash; it’s not as if Sarver is going to pay any star FA’s to come to Phoenix, even if they did want to play for us with our terrible roster. There’s next to no chance that we’ll be a contender whilst Nash is in a Suns uniform.

I mean the thing is that the NBA is a business. And if the Suns want to increase their chances of doing anything in years to come they need to get rid of him.

No hard feelings type of thing. I know Nash won't request a trade but thats when management should step in and say "steve we appreciate all your time here and we want to see you do something with the waning years of your career"

I don't see how that concerns the Suns or their fans...

Rose is a better defender than CP3 and Derrick can actually defend SGs unlike Billups or Paul. Bulls are loaded with defenders that can make up for whatever Nash lacks on that end.

It'd be great, but who's to say that the Bobcats don't have a decent season between now and then and it turns into a late 1st round pick? I'd prefer a late 1st round pick in a deep draft such as 2012 than take the risk.


I don't see how that concerns the Suns or their fans...

It doesn't concern me, but it does concern the Bulls FO and do you honestly believe that they'd pursue Nash?

At best, they're high level role players. Nash, on the other hand, is a near elite player for at least 2 seasons. As it stands, it doesn't seem like either Indiana or Philadelphia can win it all without a big time upgrade at at least one position. Nash would be that big time upgrade.

This has LAL written all over it.

How can they not make a run at him with everything but Kobe, Pau, and Bynum. They don't have much else but they need to do whatever it takes. The window is closing but Nash makes them this season possibly favorites. Ebanks, Goudeluck, Odom TPE, and picks combine whatever you have to to make it happen.

Can you combine the Odom TPE with other stuff to make the trade happen? If so then

Ebanks, Walton, Goudeluck, 1st, Odom TPE, for Nash and Childress.

PHX dumps a ton of salary and gets a few young guys in return and a nice TPE to make a trade. LAL gets a late Christmas present.

If the TPE can't be combined then LA might be screwed.

The Amare-Nash Suns made three WCFs and arguably their best team was robbed in the WCSFs. None of those teams had an offensive weapon as good as Melo nor a basket protector like Tyson Chandler. You read 7 Seconds or Less and it's almost comical how much the Suns were depending on Kurt Thomas to cover Nash and Amare's defensive flaws.

As far as I can tell, Nash is still in his prime. Amare is coming off a fantastic season but needs a PG to play his best.



I would love to see Nash somehow end up on the Knicks with Melo, TC, and Amare but at the same time, that team is frightening to me as a Bulls fan.

It doesn't make much sense for the Suns to trade Nash. He is like Jordan in their city. He should probably retire a Sun. He's a huge draw and they could still be competitive as long as they have him. I think they will ask for way too much for them to trade him. I also think they can re-sign him. Most of the teams he can dramatically upgrade(Knicks, Lakers, ect) won't be able to offer him very much money. I think he is still worth a lot of money to Phoenix due to the reasons I mentioned earlier in this thread.

The point is that they want him to win a Title, to solidified his HOF status, and he's not going to win a title anytime soon in the Suns, and remember that he's almost a 40 year old Point Guard. If they respect him that's the best choice.
