Report: Suns Willing To Consider Trading Steve Nash

Monday February 6th, 2012

The Phoenix Suns are lagging at 9-14, once again on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture looking in from 12th place. Steve Nash has nevertheless maintained that he's not seeking a trade -- but according to Ken Berger of CBS, the Suns would pursue a deal if Nash wanted it.

"It's really on him in terms of what he wants to do or not do," a source told Berger.

Nash said a month ago that he wasn't interested in a trade, insisting "it's not my style" when asked. But as the Suns head toward the draft lottery again and Nash inches toward the end of his two-year, $22 million contract in Phoenix, the trade rumors have begun swirling once again.
