Steve Nash said Wednesday that he'd be interested in playing in New York for the Knicks if they expressed an interest in him this offseason when he becomes a free agent, according to Jared Zwerling of, who spoke with Nash at a promotional event in New York City:

"The Knicks are a great franchise and I live in New York City (each summer), so I'd definitely consider them if they were interested," the Phoenix Suns' mainstay said at a promotional appearance in Manhattan.

Nash said that even though he can't make a decision until after free agency begins on July 1, he will consider every possibility once he's able:

"I want to wait and see what's actually on the table," he said. "I'm open and excited. I'm looking at every possibility right now."

Zwerling reported that Knicks legend Walt "Clyde" Frazier was also on hand at the event and publicly said, "We need you to come to New York!" to which Nash responded by saying he's "flattered."
