Steve Nash is now seeing teams line up to try to lure him to their rosters. One team that's in the running for the 38-year-old point guard is the New York Knicks. According to ESPN, the Knicks will be one of the teams that will entice Nash less with money than with the potential to win. The Knicks have $62 million committed to nine players.
The Knicks have one more thing to offer Nash. Nash's former teammate, Amar'e Stoudemire, is the Knicks' No. 2 scorer, and he could help attract Nash to New York.
Stoudemire made his interest known to the New York Daily News, saying, "Everyone knows that Steve loves New York and New York loves Steve. I love Steve. It would be great to have him here next year."
Stoudemire knew where his interests lie when he said he wants to see Nash sign with the Knicks. Having Nash as the Knicks' floor general would significantly benefit Stoudemire.
Following is a breakdown of why the arrival of Nash would be good for Stoudemire.
