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.
