Report: Steve Nash has a three-team shortlist -- Blazers, Raptors, Suns

Sportsnet 590 The Fan's Eric Smith (via Sportsnet.ca) said on his radio show Friday in Toronto that he has been told that free-agent point guard Steve Nash has narrowed his list of possible teams for next season to three.

"I heard from national-media types from around the U.S., and at least one prominent agent as well, that believe that Steve Nash has a shortlist," Smith said. "From what I have heard from these people, and they could be wrong, but these are coming from some pretty legitimate sources, it is a three-team race for Steve Nash in free agency: Portland, Phoenix and Toronto."
The sourcing is obviously a bit suspect, but the teams certainly make sense. Nash is a Canada native and has a longstanding relationship with the Colangelo family, and Bryan Colangelo is president/general manager of the Raptors. Nash grew up in British Columbia, and Portland is the closest NBA city. And Nash has had his best years in Phoenix and wouldn't have to uproot his family.
