The Phoenix Suns know they'll have to get a good deal together to entice Steve Nash to return to Phoenix. The Suns point guard is a free agent, and he's likely to explore all options, like playing for title contenders.

There is a distinct possibility that Nash could return to Phoenix though to sign what might be his last major deal. Nash has enjoyed a great career in Phoenix, and it's quite possible that he could stick around with the franchise that gave him the best possible teams to win a title.

Suns head coach Alvin Gentry seems fairly confident in the team's chances. Dan Bickley of Arizona Republic filed this report that had these promising quotes from Gentry.

"I feel good about it," coach Alvin Gentry said about retaining Nash. "We just need a player we can throw the ball to at the end of the game, who can get to the foul line, get us a basket or make the right play.

"I think it's a little unfair for me to ask Steve Nash to do that night in and night out, not just for 66 games, but for 82 games next year. If we're fortunate enough to have Steve back, and we're going to do everything we possibly can to do that, I just think he needs some help."
