Steve Nash Rumors: Wednesday

The race for Steve Nash got awfully interesting yesterday, with a handful of developments making Nash's decision cloudier than ever. The Raptors agreed to sign Landry Fields to a hard-to-match offer sheet, removing the Knicks' best sign-and-trade chip from the equation. Meanwhile, the Lakers are making a push to land Nash in a sign-and-trade deal of their own, while the Mavericks, having missed out on Deron Williams, figure to turn their attention to Nash now. With all that in mind, we'll track today's Nash updates right here, with the latest developments added to the top of the page throughout the day….

Earlier updates:

  • While the Mavericks are interested in Nash, they're eyeing other backcourt options as backup plans, including Randy Foye and Aaron Brooks, says TNT's David Aldridge.
  • Aldridge adds that even with Fields likely off the table for a sign-and-trade, Nash is giving the Knicks time to attempt to formulate a deal that's palatable for the Suns.
  • Marc Berman of the New York Post is also hearing that while Fields' offer sheet hurts the Knicks' chances for Nash, it doesn't kill them (Twitter link).
  • Sources tell's Sam Amick that the Suns would be interested in Iman Shumpert in a sign-and-trade, though if the Knicks were to make such a deal, it would likely be driven by James Dolan rather than other members of the team's front office.
  • The Knicks' backup plan if they can't land Nash is Jason Kidd, while the Mavs will likely turn to Jeremy Lin, says Amick.

    I’m not 100% sold Nash is the best fit for Dallas. He would be better than Kidd, but they would still need a Brandon Roy or OJ Mayo type shooting guard to give them a scoring threat. Nash shoots well but isn’t concerned with getting his own.
