In a phone interview with ESPN.com's Marc Stein earlier today, Suns point guard Steve Nash said he would seek a three-year contract after his current one expires this offseason. According to Stein, the 38-year-old insists his back feels "the best it's felt in a decade."
Nash gave no indication as to whether the three-year deal he seeks will be with Phoenix, Miami, Dallas, or another organization that could use his services. The comments appear to come in response to a recent New York Post report that Nash's back was as bad as its ever been.
"It's been my best year physically from start to finish in a long time," Nash said. "Other than a little tweak (last week) against San Antonio, my back's been pretty close to 100 percent."
The two-time MVP has only missed four games this season, and is currently leading the league with 11.3 APG.
