Lakers Pursuing Steve Nash
Nash wouldn’t help the Lakers defensive woes at the PG position, but his passing and shooting would be a huge lift to an offense that at times looked lost and unorganized,
Nash said he would have a hard time seeing himself in a Lakers uniform, but money and an opportunity for a ring could change his mind.
While the thought of Nash in Lakers purple sickens Suns fans, the possibility is not out of the question, the Lakers have entered the chase for Nash, reports David Aldridge at NBA.com.
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.
Nash has a lot of options, this is definitely one of the better ones.
