One of the many reasons the Phoenix Suns' faithful have loved Steve Nash for all these years is due to his loyalty. Even with all the changes the team has undergone and with so much talent coming through the desert only to leave for other teams (Joe Johnson, Amar'e Stoudemire), Nash has never wavered in his insistence that he wanted to finish his career with the team that made him a two-time MVP and a future Hall of Famer.
But at 37-years-old, Nash is winding down and the Suns would love nothing more to provide him with a chance to compete for a title. As currently constructed, the Suns aren't the team to do that for Nash so it puts Nash in an awkward position. Despite the Suns' struggles, Nash has yet to express an interest in being traded, league sources told CBS Sportsline. But the Suns have made it known that whatever Nash wants to do is what they'll do. Nash will be an unrestricted free agent this summer so letting the Suns know now that he would like to play for a contender will allow them to get something in return.
Either way, the ball is in Nash's court.
