NBA Rumors: Ranking Possible Destinations for Steve Nash
Nash, 38, has about two or three years left in the tank, and many contenders would love to have a playmaker like him. But the choice is up to Nash. These are the four best destinations for Nash.
4. Chicago Bulls
The Chicago Bulls could use Nash greatly. Their star point guard Derrick Rose will be out for a large part of the season, so it would make sense for Nash to step into that role.
The Bulls will pursue that idea. CSN Chicago reports that the Bulls will try to lure in either Nash or Jason Kidd to come aboard with them as they try to win a title. Nash will have a tough choice to make.
3. Miami Heat
The Miami Heat will be contenders for the ring for the next few years, so Nash should want to be a part of that. He will be able to join what can be a possible dynasty in Miami.
Nash told ESPN he would consider an offer to team up with LeBron down in South Beach.
I would listen. He's phenomenal. I love what they're doing there. A lot of people don't like them because they put all that talent there. But they're professional, they play hard, they play together. Their coaching staff has done a great job, so I have a tremendous amount of respect for them.
Nash could capture a title if he takes his talents to South Beach.
2. New York Knicks
The New York Knicks could be a good place for Nash to end up. He has good history with Amare Stoudamire, and he would be joining two All-Star talents.
Nash shared with ESPN New York that he would consider joining the Knicks.
The Knicks are a great franchise and I live in New York City (each summer), so I'd definitely consider them if they were interested.
It would not be a bad idea if he did.
1. Los Angeles Lakers
Joining Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers sounds as if it would be a great situation for Nash. They were struggling at the point guard position this past season. Nash would be a great guy to run the show from the point.
According to ESPN's Bradford Doolittle, the Lakers are one of the best possible situations for Nash. Nash will be playing alongside three All-Stars and will not have the pressure of carrying the team as he has had to do in Phoenix.
