Report: Phoenix Suns want Knicks' Landry Fields if Steve Nash goes to New York

The Phoenix Suns have reportedly expressed interest in New York Knicks guard Landry Fields as part of a deal that would send Steve Nash to the Big Apple, according to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

To free up cap space, the Knicks would also likely part with Iman Shumpert, a young and talented defender, along with center Dan Gadzuric's $1.9 million non-guaranteed contract, according to Mark Berman of the New York Post. Steve Novak and Jared Jeffries are two Knicks free-agents that the Suns could be interested in signing as well, and if that were to happen, the Knicks would be able to offer Nash more than a $3.09 million mid-level exception contract, which is all the team can afford at the moment.

According to the report, a source said the three-year deal the Toronto Raptors offered Nash on Sunday for a reported $36 million is "false," "untrue" and inflated.

Nash would serve as a mentor to Jeremy Lin, who would see a decrease in playing time next season, but would figure to become an even better point guard over the long-term because of Nash's arrival.
