Steve Nash Named General Manager Of Canada Senior Men's National Team

At 38 years old, Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash will eventually have to move on from playing the game of basketball, and it looks like he's already lining up future gigs to keep him busy once that time comes.

Nash was named general manager of Canada Basketball's senior men's team on Tuesday, according to Sportsnet. Already the biggest basketball star to come out of Canada, Nash will now take his knowledge of the game to the front office to try to put together the best team possible.

It won't be an easy thing to do. The last time the Canadians made an Olympic appearance was in 2000 in Sydney where they finished seventh and Nash played for them.

Nash' first task will be finding a coach after Leo Rautins resigned in September. Jay Triano, the coach of the 2000 team, was brought up as a possibility but his interest in the job is unknown.

Nash will have help making decisions as Rowan Barrett was also hired Tuesday as assistant general manager, according to a tweet from National Post's Eric Koreen.
