Rumor: Nash won’t ask Suns for a trade?
Amid all the NBA noise, there is conspicuous silence emanating from the Arizona desert. That sound you don’t hear is Steve Nash, not asking for a trade.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: We already knew this.
We already knew Steve Nash wouldn’t compromise his values and ask the Phoenix Suns to deal him to a contender before the trade deadline.
Nash believes such a request would amount to quitting on teammates, coaches, and the organization, so he’ll keep quiet and continue playing for the Suns.
Of course, the team has a say in this, too. Nash is a free agent in July and there’s little chance he signs the last contract of his career with the sad-sack Suns.
The Suns have a choice: let Nash leave for nothing in July or move him for an asset they can rebuild around.
Make no mistake about it, the Suns will have to rebuild. And moving Nash would make the process easier.
