This is not a Trade Steve Nash thread.
However, in our current situation I think it is necessary to look at all available options. One option is to move Nash, but what would it be possible to get for him? He is quite old, is a defensive liability and is on a semi-heavy contract that pays him 9,3 million next season and 9,7 the season after that. On the other hand, he is still a really good at running an offense, he's among the best leaders/locker-room guys in the league.
IMO a few teams could use him. I think it would be either defensive teams that lack in scoring, like Boston or Indiana, or young teams in need of leadership, such as Sacramento and Toronto.
Boston. I know trading with Boston is a long-shot. But Boston are the one team that have pieces that complement Nash’s abilities (and limitations). They’re also paying a lot for a long time for Lee, Bass, Terry and Green and would be interested in moving some or all of them.
Indiana. They can defend, but they can’t score. Nash would solve that. Perhaps with Danny Granger and/or George Hill being the centrepiece.
Sacramento. If they’re moving to Seattle – a two hour’s drive away from where Nash grew up – I think they’d be interested in Nash. They have the most immature team in the league and have a few guys who could be included.
Toronto. He’s Canadian! It’s a no-brainer.
So what do you guys think? Is it even possible to trade Nash and get back value or should he stay in LA?
