"I am not going to come back to the suns. . . If theyre not looking to upgrade the roster seriously, and i think they are."

Via paul coro twitter

There the cat's out of the bag so stop the "free nash" bs. There is a plan in place and there is a reason nash is still in PHX, wether he resigns(which he would say he would) is up to the FO.

He said he would think about miami. Riles will take care of the rest, everyone in the heat is on a contract below there actual value. If nash wants a chance at a ring he will be on the heat(or some other contender) next season. The whole loyal to phx is nice and all but the man wants a ring i believe.

the suns only have 6 players under contract this offseasin with an amnesty in their back pocket so technically they only have 5. Thats around 30mill in cap space so if they make the right moves they can probably put a contender together.

Depends how much he's willing to take for the next season. If he goes to a contender doubt he'll get more than 3 mill a year.

I'll say it's possible, but who are they going to get?

I mean, next year the Blazers have nearly as much money in cap space as the Suns plus Batum and Aldridge, so I could just as easily say the Blazers could become a dominant team. Heck, they have enough money to sign Deron Williams.

But the problem is Williams will never go there, just like he'll never go to Pheonix. So my question is, who do you envision Pheonix getting in FA this year that can throw them over the hump?

I see him going to Miami, or staying in Phx. Phx has cap space, and can maybe go out and get a PF like Garnett, and go out and get someone like Gordon to help the rebuilding process.

I might get knocked for the Garnett comment, but what I have seen what the suns training staff has done with Michael redd. I say why not.

As a Suns fan, I really can't see us landing any big FA's that will turn us into a contender.

We needed to trade Nash before the season started, or at least before the deadline so we could tank this season and start the rebuilding process with a decent rookie. Now we are borderline out of the lottery because Nash is still a freak and can win games with a bunch of role players.

Sign Deron have him play at SG. Sign and old KG/Duncan to Min. Nash/Hill to Min. Maybe Gerald Wallace off the bench?

Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash, one of the top free agents this summer, joined the Dan Patrick Show this afternoon and made some comments that made ripples around the league.

"I'm not coming back to the Suns if there isn't improvement," Nash told Patrick.

Nash explained he's expecting the Suns to try to make those improvements, but that he's looking forward to becoming a free agent and deciding where to continue his career.

The hypothetical of LeBron James asking Nash to join up in Miami for one last push at a championship was brought up.

"I would listen," Nash said. "He's phenomenal. I love what they're doing there. A lot of people don't like them because they put all that talent there. But they're professional, they play hard, they play together. Their coaching staff has done a great job, so I have a tremendous amount of respect for them.

"I would definitely listen."

It shouldn't surprise anyone the 38-year-old point guard without a world championship might be enticed by the idea of joining a contender that has, what many consider, a relative hole at the point guard slot.

Keeping the Heat in the conversation could be used as leverage in negotiations with other teams. But joining the Heat would mean that Nash would be leaving millions of dollars on the table.

The Heat won't have any salary-cap space next summer, so Nash would have to settle for the mid-level exception if he wanted to join the club.

Plenty of teams, including the Suns, could offer much more money than the Heat.

But for someone who has earned about $120 million during his career, sacrificing some money for winning a title might be palatable to Nash.

The 38-year-old Nash is averaging 12 points and 11 assists with a true shooting percentage (which incorporates 2-point shots, 3-point shots and free throw percentage together) of 62.7.

Meh, the idea of Nash on the Heat SOUNDS nice, but does it improve the team to put them over the top? This would effectively allow Nash to run the point, meaning Wade and Lebron are going to have to learn how to create space without the ball and hope Nash can set them up. Obviously the Heat should get Nash if they can (as he's a much better facilitator than Chalmers and can shoot just as good from 3), but they need a legit C or big man down low to clog the paint. I think the whole Heat team as a whole would make up for Nash's lack of defense (like the article stated, plus Lebron would be the one guarding Rose anyways).

To back up Deron Williams?

I don't think so. Nash will be a Miami Heat, but if the Lakers want to keep Sessions as a backup next season and somehow get rid of Blake over the summer, I can see Nash taking the starting job in LA. (Of course, for LA, it all depends on how they do in the playoffs).

No but they will probably have to overpay someone like eric gordon or nicolas batum or maybe start a retirement home by signing ray allen and kevin garnette bring redd off the bench

Nash/fa
Allen/redd
Hill/dudley
Garnette/morris
Gortat/frye

chalmers isnt a very good defender, he gambles way to much and cant keep his man in front. Dont let him shutting down lin make you think he's a good defender. He gets steals and is average on D but commits way to many dumb fouls.

Rio is better defender than nash but i dont think the miami D would suffer to much.

Actually, that IS a good point. If Lebron showed up in last years finals, the Heat win it easily (IMO). Heat got up 2-1, and probably would have been up 3-0 had they not blown that lead in game 2. Honestly, how far the Heat go in the postseason all hinges on Lebron. Dude was a force to be reckoned with in the Celtics and Bulls series, but not so much in the Finals. Having Lebron do what he does when it matters along with a healthy Nash IS just icing on the cake.

Who knows. These playoffs this year will answer a lot of questions for a lot of teams. But I think its obvious that Nash is gone after this year. Dude wants a ring.

I might get blasted for this, but I think they're better off with Chalmers. Not saying Chalmers isn't anywhere near Nash's level, but there are some issues with this.

-Nash takes the ball out of Lebron and Wade's hands, and like any other superstars they need the ball in their hands. Out of everyone, this helps Bosh the most, because he'd go pick and roll with Nash all day. Also he's a big downgrade from Chlamers defensively.

I will say that Nash + LBJ + Wade + Bosh would be spectacular in the open court, i mean maybe best ever. But to get the best out of Nash, you have to speed up the tempo, and risk defense for offense in the process.

I love Steve Nash, but to I don't know if this would be as spectacular as people think.

The Heat are already so good, but lets be honest with ourselves, they need a big at the 5 spot more than a pg.

Phoenix has 3 or 4 good players. Nash, Gortat, Hill, and Dudley. Markieff Morris still has to show more. Shannon Brown, Channing Frye, Robin Lopez, Sebastian Telfair, Michael Redd and Hakim Warrick are all at the very best role players.

The only chance Nash stays is if they sign Eric Gordon, Nicolas Batum possibly, and use their draft pick on a scorer off of the bench. Even then, that team wouldn't contend most likely.

I want him to come back to Dallas.

Nash was specifically asked about the Heat and he said he would listen. All that means is he would consider it. There will be plenty of teams with interest in Nash next season who can actually offer him money. All the Heat can offer is the mid level exception. I'm betting he would rather join a team that he can help contend while getting paid then be the fourth option on the Heat for no money. It remains a possiblity but i don't think this interview means he's leaning towards the Heat in any way.

03-29-2012, 08:23 PM
its so funny that the Heat already have the amazing team, and if they don't win again this yr, they might get Nash. Lebron would need 3 other top players at their positions in order to win. its a bit of a joke. i really hope he never wins a title, but if he does after also getting Nash, it wouldn't even matter. it doesn't mean nearly as much if a team wins with Nash, Wade, Lebron, and Bosh on it. it'd be sad and pathetic if they still can't win though.

I agree. We all saw what a PnR looked like with Nash and Marion, imagine Lebron setting the screen and if the off-side defender steps in you have Wade as the secondary cutter. They'd have as many ally-oops as the rest of the league combined.

Nash doesnt miss open shots and can create for himself which is something Cole and Chalmers can't do. He'd be a huge upgrade. I'd rather have a solid center though.

Thats pretty much a starting All Star lineup regardless what trash plays center. The point is that teams make it happen with 2 All Stars, or heck even one (Mavs) but the Heat need 2+ to succeed (not that they succeeded yet) So if they do win the ring next year with Nash (assuming he signs there) it wont be as amazing or impressive.

If Nash does end up with the Heat, would you want to start him or bring him off the bench? I say he would be great off the bench, as his age reduces his minutes plus his skills will be utilized more fully with LeBron and/or Wade off the floor. They would be even more scary to face, as you could have any combination of LeBron, Wade, Nash, and Bosh on the floor.

But he answered a straight up question. Obviously he's not going to say "**** that ****. Miami is stupid I'm not going there." He answered like anyone would. He basically said he is considering his options. I think he goes to Dallas in all honesty if Deron doesn't jump ship there.

Of course not. But if nash is thinking of going to a contender, it wouldnt surprise me if miami is at the top of his list

If I'm phoenix I sign Gordon and Batum and if Nash wants to walk than cool, but if he wants to stay and sign for less he'll have the pieces neccesary to make a push..

That would be cool but i dont think he could win a ring there. Unless he just wants a change of scenery.

Cubby
03-30-2012, 12:33 AM
Nobody really knows what he wants. Obviously he wants a ring, and I think with the cap space Dallas could potentially have, they could build a legitimate contender.

Pat Riley should have traded Wade for Nash, Gortat, and a first round pick during the trade deadline.

Nash to the Pacers was thrown around a lot early in the season as being the missing piece by some writers on ESPN. Having a pure point guard would do wonders for the team.

thats it. Depending on how they finish the season the suns should look to trade their 1st rd pick and lopez for an all star pf then over pay either gordon or batum and hope nash wants to play for less(i doubt he would decline).

I don't think Nash makes them that much better, he is at his best with the ball in his hands, but so is Lebron and so is Wade... Nash's impact would be best felt on a team like the Magic.

Don't feed the troll. He only shows up here to bash Wade.

That would be a perfect situation. Nash is great passer/shooter hybrid and he's in great shape. He could run the point for stretches, then become a shooter when Wade or LeBron have the ball. Very scary indeed.

the suns only have 6 players under contract this offseasin with an amnesty in their back pocket so technically they only have 5. Thats around 30mill in cap space so if they make the right moves they can probably put a contender together.

Who is a top tier free agent the Suns can add around Nash this summer?

Go look at the 2012 free agents list here:
http://www.hoopsworld.com/2012-nba-free-agents

There isn't more than 1 or 2 all-star caliber players that aren't restricted. This is realistically a 1-man free agency period with Deron Williams far and away the best player available. Even using the restricted free agents, I don't see 2 players the Suns can add from that list that makes them a 2nd round or better playoff team.

add batum and eric gordon and try to get a team to trade a legit all star caliber pf using robin lopez, 1st rd 2012 pick and perhaps markieff morris.

Nash/fa vet min
Gordon/fa mle
Batum/dudley
pf(josh smith would be my perfect scenario highly doubt it though)/hakim warrick
Gortat/frye

Not bad team can probably go back to the run n gun system scoring 110ppg a night with some feisty defense.

^^^Love that Chuck Norris sig

On topic, I'd be ok with him going to Miami since he'd have a real shot at the ring.
I believe he's doing this as leverage to force the Suns' hand to get better.
If we can sign Gordon and maybe G. Wallace, we'd have our go to scorer again and our new, better, Marion. That's a team that can compete for the West and maybe more.

"heatle" :facepalm:

How much help does Miami need to win, or should i say Lebron.I hope he stays with the Suns or returns to Dallas. To me with or without a title he is one of the best PGs in history

Sly Guy
03-30-2012, 11:15 AM
There was a problem last year with not enough ball for Wade and Bron. You add a PG who handles the ball as much as Nash and you're in the same boat again. Worse, is that Nash is a distributor, so having him on the team is like asking Wade and Bron to change their mentality on their approach to offence. Instead of isos, they'll be getting cuts to the bucket or fed the ball for jumpers.

Nash on paper to Miami looks good, but I think you're taking touches away from the guys you want to have the ball.

Where nash would excel on Mi8ami is if you had him playing the minutes when bron and wade are on the bench. He'd be capable of turning their less than stellar bench into more of an offensive threat, but do you really want to waste his talents on those scarce minutes?

I think Nash is better suited for a team like Indy, IMO.....might not win him a title, but that's where you're getting the most out of him.

Yea, miami already has the #1 fg%, with nash it would just be scary.

Nash would avg 10 assists, prob 3-4 3's a game and shoot over 50%
