If we get D12, we need to keep Gasol in order to have a 4 who is in inside/outside threat.
But Mitch, definitely deserves GM of the year honors.

Nash is a good fit offensively. Defensively, there are very few who are going to stop Westbrook.


Gasol needs to go no matter what. He's not a great fit next to Howard and he's getting paid 20 million dollars. He needs to leave.

Robert Sarver would get $9 million in cash with a sign-and-trade using that traded player exception.


I would think the Lakers would send Sessions and Ebanks to Phoenix. It would just be two separate deals to make it work under the salary cap.


If these numbers work, Nash would be a suitable replacement for CP3.

Upon reflection, you are correct on both.
Nash's best days were when PHX had all of the shooters and he had a spread offense, with good spacing.
To accomplish that, we need to trade Gasol for 2 persons.
And, that way we get more players for Gasol's salary.
Do we also have a reunion with Grant Hill?

Guys, guys, guys! Kobe will finish his career as one of the top 3 players in the history of this game. Just because he has played most of his career without a ball-dominant point guard does not mean that he can't play with one. That is absurd.

Kobe's game has been isolation heavy one-on-one because of the offenses and guards that he has played with. Sme of you act like he can't make plays off of screens which is also equally absurd. Who do you think was running off all those screens with the clock winding down and hitting all those clutch Js?

Nash may prevent Kobe being doubled, as he is a great shooter and, more importantly, can create for himself off the dribble.

Also, he has Kobe's respect as Kobe has said he is one the best pure shooters he has ever faced.

Fine fine. We'll take Bynum for D12. Then sign Nash. Reloaded for another run. Don't be a cheap arse, Jim.

Do it Mitch!

The TPE that we have would allow us to take in a player starting at $9m. $9.6m in year two. $10.4m in year three. Three years, $29m is a bit far off the three years, $36M Toronto is said to be offering. So if Phoenix doesn't want cap relief, I guess Sessions and more is the best to offer.

i'm on the nash bandwagon. i don't think it gets us over the top, but we're one step closer.

we'll need some shooters to help nash space the floor so he can have some driving lanes and create.

Nash will certainly help if we can resign Sessions. It will dramatically boost our overall depth.

Getting Nash is a dream. He alone makes us a legit contender again, no doubt about it. A LIGHTS OUT shooter next to Kobe with Bynum down low? With Gasol still? Good lord.

Do it Mitch????? Of course he would do it. But Phoenix won't. And I doubt that Nash would do that to the Suns fans -- he is so loyal.

Sure, the TPE plus two firsts (an LAL first down the road and Minny first from a Gasol trade) would be a lot to turn down by the Suns. And the money - 30 million -- is a lot for Nash (close enough to Raps offer). And Lakers offer the only real chance to get the money and a ring (Mavs, Knicks, and Raps don't). But joining the Lakers and Kobe is such a long shot. This is pipe to me.

I would definitely like to see Nash in P&G. Not only is he a great PG with high BB IQ, who can make solid (but not truly special) big men look like superstars, but he is also in top shape, his stamina is still pretty amazing -- and on top of everything, he is one of the elite NBA shooters. Just look at this:

"Using spatial data mapping to track shooting, Goldsberry found that, in fact, Steve Nash is the game’s best shooter from the most places. To be more exact: Nash averages a point per shot (equal to 33 percent shooting on 3’s and 50 percent on 2’s) from more places than any other player. "

I say, do it, Mitch!

So anybody else think Kobe is calling Nash to make this happen? And if Nash is signed would it persuade Dwight to finally give in to sign long term? I would think so.

Steve Nash - G - Suns The Knicks and Suns are said to be working on a sign-and-trade that would bring Nash to the Knicks, which appears to be his first choice of places to play.
This will be a very difficult deal to put together and is further complicated by the fact the Knicks don't want to include Iman Shumpert in the deal. Money talks and Toronto holds a lot of leverage on that front, but the Knicks appear to still be desperately trying to put together a deal that works for Nash. And if the Knicks can't get Nash, it looks like Jason Kidd is the next target on their list. Related: Knicks, Jason Kidd

Knicks could offer a package of amare n chandler for dwight and turk n maybe sign n trade lin for nash. That could be what orlando gm referred to as the alternate significant player he was referincing to.

Nash, melo, dwight with ny spotlight would be tempting for d12

There's not a chance Orlando accepts that trade. Id be shocked if they do. Really the only return that would make sense is Bynum and I'd be doing whatever I could to acquire him.

And Shumpert is great, but he's coming off a pretty serious knee injury. I guess there's less worry with Phoenix's staff there but I still would be concerned. Knicks should just resign Lin and Kidd as the backup.
