Steve Nash is a free agent that many teams (particularly NBA title contenders) will be taking a look at this offseason. One of those teams is the New York Knicks, who feel like they need more point guard depth with Jeremy Lin probably not quite ready to handle the grind of a full NBA regular season all on his own. Amare Stoudemire has talked about how great it would be to rejoin his former teammate in New York, particularly if the Knicks were interested in signing him.
Nash doesn't seem to be all that interested in New York though, at least according to Jared Zwerling.
@MokeHamilton @hoopscritic Hearing that Nash won't want to come to NY. We can likely kiss that notion goodbye.— Jared Zwerling (@JaredZwerling) May 24, 2012
Royce Young of CBS Sports filed this additional report on teams Nash might be interested on joining up with for the 2012-13 season.
There are better options for him and he knows it. The Lakers, Mavericks, Magic (with Dwight Howard), Heat -- the Knicks are a fine team, but for what Nash is after, it might not be the perfect marriage. Especially since they can't overpay to get him.
