Call me a sucker for loyalty if you must, but I simply can't imagine Steve Nash leaving the franchise that he has led for the past eight years. According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, the sentiment is backed by a strong possibility of Nash returning.
As for how likely it is that the Suns place the necessary pieces around Nash to build a contender, however, Aldridge claims that the odds are not so pretty.
"Phoenix is not an elite team in the West and you've got about four or five teams that are. I'm not saying it's impossible, because people like living out here, it's a great place to live, but I wonder if they'll be able to be as successful getting people to come in as they would like to."
Not a promising sign for the Suns, but not a nail in the coffin either. Don't be shocked to see Steve Nash sign their two-year, $20 million deal.
Should Nash decide not to re-sign, Deron Williams will be the Suns' major target.
