He came here to be closer to his kids. Odds of finding a trading partner in the Western Conference just as close to Phoenix isn't good. If the team acquiring him actually wants him, I don't see them being sold on the fact that he won't retire if traded.
With Kobe out, I think we would get to see more P&R with Nash and Dwight. Plus Nash should feel more comfortable handling the ball like he did in Phoenix. Think there are more positives to keeping him than moving him.
I like him, I still think he can contribute a lot, I don't WANT to trade him, but if the opportunity came up for a young, speedy PG and we did it, I wouldn't be upset. Another thing this season that has bothered me about him is he's been really bad with the turnovers, he falls down and loses the ball a lot, gets trapped and throws the ball away a lot, if that's not due to age I don't know what it is. If he does come back and we make the playoffs though, I expect to see him play PG like we expected, if he can't, I'm going to continue to question his usefulness going forward. I think we got him 1 or 2 years to late sadly. What I would not mind seeing is us somehow getting a speedy young PG to start and maybe have Nash come off the bench, that way he can run that unit and not be reduced to a spot up shooter next to Kobe, if Kobe is playing that is.
