Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

Report: Suns offer Steve Nash $6 mill a year for just two years


If true, can Steve Nash look at this as anything other than disrespect?

Not that he was headed back to Phoenix anyway, but Paul Cavlvisi of KSTAR radio in Phoenix reports the Suns offer is two years, $6 million per year. (Via IamaGM.com).

Take that with a grain of salt. But the two years thing was expected from Phoenix, that I don’t doubt. On the money side, that would be about half what the Raptors have already offered if true.

The Knicks are still trying to do a sign-and-trade to bring in Nash to his summer home, while if Deron Williams stays in Brooklyn you can bet Dallas will jump in with a healthy offer for Nash to reunite him with Dirk Nowitzki.

Nash would be smart to be patient and let the market come to him. He’ll get both money and a good landing spot if he’s patient.

Between Hezonja, Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo and Aaron Gordon, the Magic have a nucleus of young players that has the potential to be a lot of fun. Even if they’re still a few years away from contending, they’re definitely going to be a League Pass favorite this year.
