Still, the Knicks are going to do their due diligence, just in case the Suns are actually interested in moving the face of their franchise. The Knicks "will make an inquiry," one team source said regarding Nash’s possible availability.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It doesn’t matter how much those involved deny it. This rumor isn’t going anywhere.
Not now. Not until there’s closure.
The struggling New York Knicks allegedly contacted the Phoenix Suns about the availability of point guard Steve Nash.
The Knicks interest in Nash is nothing new. Neither is Nash’s interest in the Knicks.
Former teammate Amar’e Stoudemire and Coach Mike D’Antoni are there; the Knicks spend money, the Suns don’t; Nash already spends his summers in the trendy SoHo district; and living fulltime in The Big Apple would allow him to pursue his post hoops career of film production.
This isn’t exactly breaking news. However, there’s a recent development: Nash and his wife are getting divorced.
Perhaps he’ll now seek a change of scenery –like a trade to The Big Apple. Of course, he may want to stay in Phoenix to be near his twin daughters and newborn baby.
There’s only one thing we know: the speculation surrounding Nash and New York will continue.
