Lakers Trade Rumors: Suns Block Steve Nash Sign-And-Trade, According To Report

With the news that the New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns are ramping up their talks for a possible sign-and-trade deal for free agent point guard Steve Nash, other teams are trying their best to get ahold of the perennial All-Star, including the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lake Show was pursuing a possible sign-and-trade deal of their own for Nash, but apparently the Suns wanted nothing of sending him to a Western Conference rival, especially the Purple and Gold.

Per ESPN's Marc Stein via Twitter:

Nash is said to favor playing in New York, though other squads like the Mavericks and Raptors are said to be vying for his services still as well.
