Rumor: Steve Nash To Knicks

The feeding frenzy that is the beginning of NBA free agency is set to begin in just a couple weeks. And there is no bigger fish to land than potentially "former" Suns point guard Steve Nash.

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: New York seems like an ideal fit for Nash, but what about Jeremy Lin?


Even without former head coach Mike D’Antoni leading the squad, Nash would be the perfect fit for a Knicks team that lacks any consistency on the offensive side. Too frequently for the Knicks on offense this season it was a case of "2 on 5", those two being Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire with infrequent contributions from anyone else. Remember how good the Knicks played as a team during the run of "Lin-Sanity" when Jeremy Lin was healthy? Imagine that scenario but with Steve Nash at the helm; how would the Knicks not be better?

While the rumor of Nash to the Knicks is nothing new, during a promotional stop in NY during the past week, Nash did nothing but fuel the fire of his potential arrival in New York.

"The Knicks are a great franchise, and I live in New York so I would definitely consider them if they were interested. I want to see what’s actually on the table. I’m open and excited. I’m looking at every possiblity now. It sounds like there are a number of teams that are interested."

So who else is rumored to be interested in Nash’s services? Every one of the leagues upper echelon teams; Bulls, Heat, Lakers, Mavericks, Thunder and Spurs.

If it was up to you who would you rather have running your team; Steve Nash or Jeremy Lin?
