Steve Nash is looking for somewhere to end his career prolific career, and just about every team with a need at point guard has shown interest in the 38-year-old veteran. Nash has been linked to various teams in recent days, but none is more surprising than the Los Angeles Lakers. According to this latest tweet from Paul Coro, the Suns and Lakers could consider a sign-and-trade deal to send Nash to L.A.
The Lakers & Nash are interested in a sign-and-trade. Sounds like there's no way Sarver would do that for the #Suns rival.— Paul Coro (@paulcoro) July 4, 2012
It's tough to imagine Nash going to the Lakers after so many showdowns with them during his Phoenix days, but you just never know anymore. And as Coro mentions in his tweet, much-maligned Suns general manager Robert Sarver may never live it down if he were to put Nash in the same division as Phoenix.
The Lakers are pretty strapped for cash due to the big contracts of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and others, so this rumor doesn't really seem too legitimate. As is the case with Nash this offseason though, anything related to the star point guard will remain relevant in the hearts of Suns fans everywhere.
