Who Wants Steve Nash?

Steve Nash is one of the many desirable names on the long, intoxicating list of 2010 free agents.

Yet it’s looking increasingly probable that this summer will be the offseason that brings clarity to Nash’s future, via one of two outcomes:

1. He will sign the multiyear contract extension that the Suns have been preparing for him.

2. The possibility that the Suns get a trade offer for Nash too good to resist.

Phoenix is expected to make Amare Stoudemire and Shaquille O’Neal available in trades this offseason, just as it did before the February trading deadline, but NBA front-office sources say that the Suns will soon be getting trade pitches for Nash, ready or not.
