Lakers Acquire Steve Nash Via Sign-And-Trade

JULY 10TH, 11:10pm: The sign-and-trade sending Nash from the Suns to the Lakers in exchange for four draft picks is official, tweets Mike Trudell of Lakers.com. The Lakers confirmed the news in a press release.

JULY 4TH, 8:09pm: Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic tweets that the Suns will receive the Lakers' 2013 and 2015 first-round picks and their 2013 and 2014 second-round picks.

8:07pm: Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports updates Nash's contract to $27MM over three years. He adds in a separate tweet that the Suns receive $3MM in cash from the Lakers in the deal.

7:53pm: Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports that Nash's contract will be worth $25MM over three years.

7:30pm: The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a sign-and-trade that will send Steve Nash to Los Angeles for a package of future draft picks, KATR-AM Phoenix radio host John Gambadoro reports (via Twitter).

Details of Nash's contract with the Lakers are not yet known, but it can be assumed that the first year of his new salary will fit into the $8.9MM trade exception the Lakers received when they sent Lamar Odom to Dallas in December. Details of the picks Phoenix will receive are also not known.

        Considering Kobe has a ton of respect
        For send and really likes him. It could be done with the bulls simply saying “the only way you get debt is if you take boozer and we get pau” this actually makes sense for the bulls because it rids them
        Of pau who we all
        Know kobe is done with, and they get deng who Kobe really likes.

    • Heck no, thats stupid, Boozer can’t play defense and isn’t as great offensively as Gasol. I trade Gasol to the Hawks for Josh Smith and Devin Harris or to the Wolves for Derrick Williams and then sign Beasley or trade for Pekovic.

      They just gave away the draft picks needed to get Howard. They will not get him now.

    A knicks fan here, wishing the best of luck to Nash. I’m sad he chose not to come to NY, but happy, to see him playing for a team that could get him a well-deserved ring.

        How could they not have enough cap space when they didn’t let go of any players and they gave $3 million to Phoenix?

          Absorbing Nash’s salary into the $8.9MM Lamar Odom trade exception.

          The $3MM they’re sending out is unrelated to the salary cap — it’s just money that teams can throw into trades to make them more appealing to ownership (up to $3MM per year).

      Relax buddy. They still have Bynum to build around and they didn’t lose a step with this deal. those picks will be High picks and then U have to wait until the player develops. so Kobe has another 5 years. Great deal.

      Picks can be replaced in subsequent deals. Good teams rely on veterans to put them ‘over the top.’ I’m a Celtics fan and I’m jealous of this move.

    We’ll see if Nash is still effective while not running a run and gun offense. Also, if his effectiveness is limited do to Kobe dominating the ball so much.

      Kobe made it work with shaq and Pau and it will work with steve because they need each other. Kobe will be motivated to get the championship for Nash. I’m as close to heaven as can be. This is a Good day. Now U have to worry about Kobe Nash Bynum and Maybe Gasol. If not maybe Smith from the Hawks. The best part is we might land Grant Hill too because of this deal. Happy Happy Happpy. Go Lakers

    This move doesn’t help as much as ppl think. Nash couldn’t stay in front of a college point guard at this stage of his career. They need a better defensive point.

      I take his sure shot and assits over defense alone. He use to frustrate me watching him cut the defense down. Glad he’s on our side. let the opponant’s defense worry. We’ll be fine.
