Steve Nash Willing To Leave Phoenix Suns If Team Doesn't Improve

After not being dealt by the Phoenix Suns during the NBA Trade Deadline two weeks ago, Steve Nash said on the Dan Patrick show that he'll explore options in the off season.

"I definitely do want to win," Nash told Patrick. "I'm not going to come back to the Suns if there isn't an improvement, if they're not ambitious and they're not looking to upgrade the roster seriously. And I think they are. They'll have a lot of flexibility in free agency. They'll also have been standing pat in many ways so they could do some things this summer. I think they'll become a definite possiblity for me. I do want to win. I do want to consider all my options."

Nash is considered to be one of the NBA's premier free agents in the upcoming 2012 off-season. He will be one of the top point guards available along with the New Jersey Net's Deron Williams.

In the same conversation with Dan Patrick, Nash stated he would consider signing with the Miami Heat if the team was interested:

"I would listen," Nash said. "He's phenomenal. I love what they're doing there. A lot of people don't like them because they put all that talent there. But they're professional, they play hard, they play together." (Via: ESPN.com)

Would Nash be willing to take a paycut to help LeBron James his first championship?
