Nash not going overseas, wants to stay in Phoenix

Steve Nash is a homebody.

While other players are signing or flirting with teams overseas, Nash said he’s not going. The All-Star point guard is on a promotional tour in China and while Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul said they would consider playing a season in China if the lockout drags on, Nash said no thanks, according to China Daily.

“Like I said before, if I did not have three daughters to take care of I would like to come and play in the (Chinese Basketball Association)” Nash said during a press conference on Monday in Shanghai.

“I know I have got a lot of diehard fans here, it’s incredible. The basketball league here is also awesome. It’s definitely a good league for all players worldwide. But I would like to stay with my family during the holidays,” said Nash, who arrived in China last Saturday for a four-day charity visit.

As he has before, Nash said again he isn’t looking to be traded to a contender.

“Every player wants the ring. We were very close to it many times. Changing teams may be away. But I don’t think I will join another team; I prefer to stay in Phoenix. Hopefully, we can go further next season,” said Nash.

Which is good, because it would be bad business for the Suns to trade Nash. Although the longer they hold out, the more interesting the offers that roll in may become.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
