Report: Suns Would Like To Re-Sign Steve Nash

Thursday March 1st, 2012

The Phoenix Suns want to re-sign veteran point guard Steve Nash when he becomes a free agent this summer,  sources close to the situation have told ESPN.

Suns owner Robert Saver hopes he can convince Nash to re-sign with the team for at least two more seasons, according to ESPN.

However, according to NBC Sports, Nash is intrigued about being becoming a free agent this summer telling reporters, “It’ll be an interesting period for me if only because I never really been through it. I want to be a champion and play on the best possible team but there’s also other factors. What’s the best fit for me, environment and financial considerations.” Demand for Nash before the March 13 trade deadline has been limited to the Portland Blazers and Orlando Magic. Many offers for the 38-year old point guard have reportedly not been as attractive as they might be considering his age and him becoming a free agent this summer.  This season with the Suns (14-20), Nash is averaging 13.9 points and 10.9 assists per game.
