the stretch is pretty much doubling the length of anyone contract with reduction per year in salary but I dont understand the comment to stretch to 2014, isn't he under contract till 2015? Best case we stretch it and he retires after 2014 anyways. I dont want him playing him Wed anyways, he's 100% and him coming back will require the rest of the team to adjust again and this is a crucial game.

No. But I think he'll be waived & stretched in 2014. RT @chase2433: is Steve Nash able to be amnestied?

What is stretched?


Take his 9 million dollar salary and split it over the course of 2 years. I don't know if you can go longer than that or not.

I don't know if this is accurate at all, but if Nash were to retire, unless he waives his contract, we are still on the hook for his salary? I don't know if that's correct or not.


if he retires his salary comes off the books but its not like its gona free up any cap true cap space just reduces overall tax burden.

Thanks guys.

I don't see us waiving him... It'd be another PR nightmare. And if we DID do that, where do we get another PG from? We try to sign a guy with the limited means we have now? I don't know, man...

If he retires, that's one thing. But if we actively get rid of him, that's a whole other can of beans. I just don't see us doing that.

* @SteveNash will NOT play tomorrow vs. Houston. LAL are "hopeful" he's available in the next several days (should they advance).

Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash underwent an MRI exam, which confirmed several preexisting issues related to his hip and back, which are causing nerve irritation and contributing to his hamstring pain and weakness. Nash received an epidural injection this morning, and will not play in tomorrow night’s game against the Houston Rockets. It is hopeful that he will be able to return to play in the next several days.

Cause Nash has been injured all year & probably won't play in the playoffs.

That's why we should have kept Sessions LOL, Steve is breaking down quick! We already had a solid 26 year old PG why would we let him go? Sure he was terrible at times vs OKC but don't forget Mike Brown slowed him down. He would be perfect for this offense.

First Gasol with his ultrasound, now Nash with an epidural? Am I reading this right? These are guys we are talking about right?

The best case scenario for the Lakers is if he retires, but he isn't walking away from $20 mil. I dont think he can get through a full season anymore. Hell look at Ginobili, hes much younger than Nash and he cant get through a season, he hasn't played in 10 games

Such a waste of assets.. But I can't blame the FO, a good PG was needed for this team, they just chose the wrong fit.

I was thrilled to bring in Nash, he's a great teammate, shooter, clutch player, but the guy is old. I don't see this improving next season, he's still going to be old and he's away from the miracle workers on the Phoenix medical staff. Look what's happened to him and Grant Hill since they left, Hill has played 40 games, Nash has played 50. At this point, combining his injuries and he and Kobe really never figuring out how to play great together, I'm ready to call Nash a failed experiment/gamble. What can be done I have no idea, but I see him missing some games next season as well at 40 years old.

They should just fire D'Antoni and make Nash the coach. I think Steve's playing days are behind him, unless you want him to join the team midway through the season and play like 35 games other than that I think its safe to say hes done playing an 82 game season + playoffs. No wonder he didnt want to leave Phoenix the last few years their medical staff are geniuses

That's some more bad news. I don't want to speculate but it doesn't sound good for seeing him in the playoffs if we make it.

So, basically, he's not coming back.

I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.
