The Los Angeles Lakers are the latest team to be linked to free agent point guard Steve Nash, who has drawn interest from just about everyone this offseason. Nash, 38, is on the final legs of a tremendous career, and now he's looking to join a contender capable of winning a championship.
Here is the latest on the Nash rumors.
The Lakers & Nash are interested in a sign-and-trade. Sounds like there's no way Sarver would do that for the #Suns rival.— Paul Coro (@paulcoro) July 4, 2012
It's tough to imagine the Suns agreeing to a deal that would send Nash to a division rival, but anything is possible I suppose. The Lakers would immediately become an offensive juggernaut with the future Hall of Famer running the show, although his defense and health would be concerns in the coming years.
This doesn't really seem like a great fit, but it'll definitely be a story to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
