The Steve Nash trade rumors started out as nothing more than speculation on the part of observers around the league.
However, rampant trade speculation has gotten out of hand since it started.
Even so, it actually makes more sense for the Suns to trade Nash now while he still retains a lot of value. He's still playing at a high level and the Suns can start the long road toward rebuilding their franchise with the assets they get in return.
If a team were to trade for Nash, the two that makes the most sense would be the Orlando Magic or Atlanta Hawks.
The New York Knicks are always being mentioned as a potential candidate, but with the way Raymond Felton is playing, that's not looking very likely.
The Suns are denying any interest in moving Nash and that looks like it's the case here. Shelve away any Steve Nash trade rumors for now.
