Rumor: Nash and Suns considering a trade?
Our position has been the same all along, which is I’ve told him that he has earned the right to stay with our franchise as long as he wants provided that he believes in what we’re doing, and provided that he’s all in and wants to do that," Babby told SI.com. It’s that last part that offers the slightest bit of wiggle room. For as much as Nash reveres his intimate relationship with the Suns’ fan base, it’s not as if he didn’t notice the departure of players like forward Amar’e Stoudemire en route to Phoenix’s decline from Western Conference finals participant in 2010 to a 40-42 record and playoff-less existence last season. He has an interesting habit in that regard, too, a frequent comment he makes that is his attempt to state the obvious: He needs more help."We’re not a very talented group," he said Saturday, in his familiar refrain.
