Robert Randolph ‏@rrtfb
steve nash has agreed to play for the #nyknicks!!!!! #3peat #dynasty!!!!

Marc Berman ‏@NYPost_Berman
Robert Randolph's tweet looks right. #Knicks closing in on Steve Nash in sign and trade with Phoenix.

Randolph is involved with the Knicks organization. Berman is a top beat writer.

This is huge. Nash, Melo, Amare and Chandler vs LeBron, Wade, Bosh - it can be done and can be beat.

EDIT: Berman deleted the tweet, don't know if they are waiting to announce it on a bigger platform or what or if it's being kept a secret. Time will tell.

Ethan Norof ‏@Mr_Norof
Minutes after reporting that #Knicks were "close" on Steve Nash sign-and-trade, @NYPost_Berman deletes the tweet. OK then.

I think this puts NYK ahead of BK. We all know how Nash and STAT team up, and Chandler played really well with CP3 so maybe this will have similar results. It will be interesting to see if Melo adjusts to Nash.

He lives in Soho in the offseason and his children go to school in NY while the season is ging on. He gets to be closer to his family and play for a contender...so your thought process makes no sense.

a lot of players live in other citys during the offseason, he is a professional who is retiring soon, if that's all he wanted wouldn't he just, idk, retire?

do you really think that makes the knicks a contender?

well, let's really think now, he's going to ny for the sole purpose to be closer to his family, totally disregarding the fact that an nba schedule is demanding anyway, but it's cool he's closer and making 10 mill, and on top of that they win the title.

Fact is, Steve Nash gives the Knicks a better chance to win NOW. Amare and Chandler aren't getting any younger. This is a WIN NOW move. By the time Shumpert is truly able to help the Knicks win, I mean by the time he develops an offensive game, and comes back from his injury, Amare and Chandler might not be effective players anymore.

I don't see why some of you don't get this move.

It actually sounds like a terrible sports movie.

But I didnt say that was the SOLE reason. and the NBA schedule has nothing to do with it, the schedule is just as demanding regardless of what team you play for. He gets to make good money while playing for a team that will be in the playoffs and being with his family. If you dont understand, you probably arent old enough.

I understand but 3 years 20 million is just too much for Fields and I like him. He should really be getting half that. I understand the professionalism aspect of the process but you do have to weigh that against overpaying a player that you don't have to overpay and only originally intended to overpay for a cause that doesn't exist any more.

So the Knicks are going to trade a guy in Shumpert who showed himself to approaching an Elite defender as a rookie?

For everyone saying he's "overrated" should realize that he stepped in immediately and was one of the best perimeter defenders in the league with his on ball pressure.

No reason for him to not continue to get better on that end and become a defensive stopper at SG.

that is what I figured too. If he was just trying to make sure that Fields can't be S&T to the Suns then he could have signed him for 3 years and 15 mil and let the Knicks possibly match and keep him.
