The interest will be high in Steve Nash this offseason, particularly from contenders that could some depth at the point guard position. Nash is a free agent, and his name will come up many times. The Phoenix Suns will ultimately love to have him back and he'd probably be interested in coming back, but there's a good chance he will look around this season.
One potential contender who could be interested in signing Nash is the Chicago Bulls. Aggrey Sam of Comcast Sportsnet Chicago has this report.
While the front office may seek out minimum-salary veterans at several positions, including point guard, a source tells CSNChicago.com that the Bulls will take a run at future Hall of Famers Steve Nash and Jason Kidd in free agency, trying to convince the former All-Stars that they will have an opportunity to win a championship, of which Kidd has one, from last season with the Mavericks, and Nash has none, in Chicago.
The Bulls clearly have their starting point guard for the decade, but there's a good chance Derrick Rose will be sidelined for parts of next season. Nash (or Kidd) could be a potential focal point for Chicago's offense while Rose recovers, then become a potential valuable veteran backup when he returns. And the Bulls could provide Nash with a possibility of winning that elusive NBA championship.
This figures to be the first of many rumors concerning Nash and Team X.
