The Los Angeles Lakers are quietly "making a strong bid" for free agent point guard Steve Nash, a source tells David Aldridge of NBA.com.

Because the Lakers, who are well over the salary cap, can only offer Nash the mini mid-level exception, a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns appears the more likely avenue for a deal, Aldridge writes. He also notes that L.A. could return Phoenix a starting point guard in Ramon Sessions.
