If there was any question as to whether two-time MVP Steve Nash would consider leaving the Suns after eight seasons in Phoenix, let that be put to rest. Speaking to ESPN's Marc Stein, the point guard said that for the first time since joining the Suns in 2004, he can see himself playing for another team. Via Bright Side Of The Sun, here's what Nash told Stein this week in New York at an annual soccer event the point guard puts on:
"I couldn't list a favorite ... But I do know that for the first time I realize that it might not be Phoenix. I would have said even in the middle of (last) season or last year that I would have thought I probably would have stayed in Phoenix forever. But it's come to a point now where I'm facing the reality that's not (the case)."
The Toronto Raptors are making a serious push to add Nash; the point guard grew up in British Columbia and represented Canada in international play. John Hollinger has also suggested that the Brooklyn Nets could end up throwing gobs of money at Nash if Deron Williams walks. No team can pay Nash more than Phoenix, but if it's about more than money, or if the Suns decide to begin looking beyond Nash, he could be in a new uniform in October.
