Lakers Making Push For Steve Nash

The Lakers are making a late move to try and sign Steve Nash, tweets NBA.com reporter David Aldridge. The Raptors, Knicks, and Mavericks are three other teams in the mix.

From Aldridge's piece on 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.

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.

Back off. BC’s already pretty much dealt with the Knicks. Don’t mess with BC

Smart move but no cap space. Will Nash really take only the MLE? I guess if he wants to win a championship bad enough.

This is the only team besides Miami that can actually offer him the chance to win a championship.

Seeing as the Thunder will ensure the Lakers are done in the West for a while, you are pretty funny… did you already forget the beatdown they delivered?”

Sessions and Hill for Nash. Hornets dont match the Gordon deal. Suns then sign Beasley.

Sessions-Marshall
Gordon- Redd
Beasley- Dudley
Morris-Hill–Frye
Gortat-Lopez- Frye
