Steve Nash Rumors: Heat Could Target Suns PG, According To Report

As the Phoenix Suns get deeper into the postseason, it will only become less likely that they will retain the services of superstar point guard Steve Nash. Could Nash be taking his talents to South Beach to play for the Miami Heat?

Alex Kennedy at HoopsWorld reports that the newly-crowned NBA champs may be targeting Nash during the offseason.

Miami doesn't have much money to spend, but they'll attempt to lure a free agent with their mini mid-level exception, just as they were able to do with Shane Battier last summer. The HEAT are hoping to sign a veteran who is willing to take a pay cut in exchange for the opportunity to compete for a title. Miami is looking for a contributor who would prefer a ring to a large contract.

Steve Nash, Chris Kaman, Grant Hill, Andre Miller, Ray Allen and Jermaine O'Neal are among the players who Miami could target with their mini mid-level exception, according to sources close to the situation. Those players can likely make more money elsewhere, but may be willing to take less to join the HEAT.

This is certainly not the last team that will be tied to Nash, but it could be a very tempting thought for him to finish up his career playing for the powerhouse of the Eastern Conference.
