Nash wouldn't work because he only thrives in the open court (he looked average when he played with Shaq) and the Lakers are one of the slowest teams in the league... Not to mention all the Kobe ISOs, he would be just standing around...

We also have no shooters, so where will be the assists coming from? Forget Nash, Andre Miller would be perfect for this slow [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] team...

He's a phenomenal passer and has eyes everywhere, its amazing to watch the passing regardless of assist numbers (which would be guaranteed 10+ APG). Kobe would find open looks along with MWP for 3's and if we get a new PF for cuts/layups/dunks aswell as the same for Drew.

I think if you convince him the right way he would come. Players 3PT% would go up instantly. Slashers would find the ball going from their hands into the rim seamlessly. Bigs would find easy layups/dunks. Just because of how good Nash is.

BUT although i believe Bynum will average career highs in points, rebounds, and blocks next year, i do think if we got Howard then Nash would be more willing to come to the Lakers. Just b/c Howard fits better with Nash.



this.

If Deron goes to Dallas or resigns with Brooklyn, I'd say Nash would be a great option. If we reign Sesh he'd be his understudy and be able to learn from the best. Nash/Kobe/Artest/Pau/Bynum with Sesh/Hill and a bunch of shooters is already a huge upgrade from last year. If Dwight for Drew can happen then great. if Pau for 2-3 reallly good players could happen, then we'd be set.

Again, I'm certain Deron is our number one priority but if that can't happen, a Nash/Sesh backcourt would be awesome

Dump Gasol, get some shooters and slashers, then Nash could work out.

Playing for Mike Brown would be a waste of time for Nash. Might as well retire.

As Raptors, Knicks & Mavs-fight 4 Steve Nash, the Lakers have also quietly entered the picture & are making a hard push, per league source.

http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2012/07/03/lakers-enter-fray-for-steve-nash/

HANG TIME CAPITAL BUREAU — While the Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks have made strong pushes for free agent guard Steve Nash, the Los Angeles Lakers have, quietly, entered the fray for the 38-year-old guard and are making a strong bid to acquire him, according to a league source.

The Lakers, with a payroll already projected in excess of $83 million next season, would only be able to offer Nash an exception starting at $3.09 million for next season. It’s unlikely Nash would take that, so a sign-and-trade deal would be a more realistic possibility.

The Lakers do have a viable starting point guard they could send Phoenix in such a deal, Ramon Sessions, who became an unrestricted free agent after surprisingly opting out of the last year of his contract. Forwards Jordan Hill and Matt Barnes are also free agents.

The Lakers have also been looking to rid themselves of forward Metta World Peace, who has two years and $15 million remaining on his deal. But the Suns aren’t believed to be interested in World Peace.

Nash is mulling offers from the Raptors, who reportedly have a three-year, $36 million deal on the table, and the Knicks, who only have the $3 million exception to offer as well.

A source said Tuesday that Nash is allowing the Knicks time to try and create a sign-and-trade deal that would be palatable for Phoenix — and also get Nash a higher annual salary. But the Raptors put a crimp in New York’s plans Tuesday when they reached a verbal agreement with restricted free agent guard Landry Fields on an offer sheet worth $20 million for three years.

Fields was one of the players the Knicks had hoped to include in a potential sign and trade with the Suns. But the league’s rules prohibit a team from trading a player who has signed an offer sheet as part of a sign-and-trade deal.
The Mavericks are also looking at Nash, who left Dallas as a free agent in 2004 for Phoenix, after Nets free agent guard Deron Williams opted to remain in Brooklyn on Tuesday. But the Mavericks, according to a league source, have other possibilities if they can’t get Nash, including Clippers free agent Randy Foye, and Aaron Brooks, who played last season in China.

Because Brooks, who had played most recently in Phoenix in the NBA, wasn’t on the Suns’ roster at the end of last season, he can’t be used by the Suns as part of any sign-and-trade deal.

Well.... I'm game for anything at this point and I haven't really thought of the possibility of a sign and trade for Nash.

I would do a sign and trade of Sessions for Nash, even at his age he's better than Sessions ever will be.

Nash's three point shooting would legitimately provide the Lakers the outside threat they so desperately need. Nash is one of the premier shooters in the league ... absolutely flawless form!

Add Nash, go after Dorell Wright, add Shard.. Our spacing would be unreal & our offense would run like clockwork.. I think my hopes are up a bit too high right now lol

The S&T would have to be really appealing. Toronto's offer is apparently three years, $36M. I'm sure Nash is interested in winning, and Toronto isn't a winner, but if we can't offer anything close to that (Sessions's newly-signed salary) I don't see it happening.

If Mitch pulls off Sessions for Nash, I'm all for keeping the core intact and just adding another bench player or two with the TPE/mini-MLE.

I'm not so sure he'd be a great fit.... he's used to having the ball in his hands almost all the time..... Kobe is as well.... Nash's best asset is how he runs the pick and roll.... that relegates Kobe to a spot up shooter.... Not sure Nash has ever played with dominate players in the post and wing....

The other end of the floor would take a step backwards that much is given..... and after watching Sessions that's hard to say....

For nearly 12 million a year I'd rather get younger and more athletic.... not older and less so....

I'm sure Kobe would make an adjustment has to how he plays his game on the offensive end with Nash.

I actually believe that if Nash was here we will finally get to see Kobe do what we've wanted him to do for the past couple season. Play more off-ball and work of screens for more catch and shoot opportunities instead of having to always do his moves off the dribble.

Steve Nash for Ramon Sessions and Devin Ebanks would be my best guess. Sign and trade would be the best option for the Lakers, but if the Sessions+Ebanks salary is not enough, they could use their Odom trade exception and then trade the two outgoing players into the Suns salary cap space. It all depends on Phoenix assisting Nash as a thank you parting gift.

I had hoped for that this year.... when we did it he was great but as the season wore on we went back to the isolation and stopped the ball....

Kobe's played one way for 16 years.... it's going to be hard to change that.... it's where he's comfortable.

Bynum would benefit from a guy like Nash however and he would help us down the stretch in close games a lot more than Howard and most of the guys connect to the Pau rumors.... Tough call.....
