Nash to LA for multiple picks all but done!!!— John Gambadoro (@Gambo620) July 4, 2012
Nash never wanted to go to Toronto he wanted to be closer to home in Phoenix, he falls into the 8.9 mill exception. Deal is done— John Gambadoro (@Gambo620) July 5, 2012
Gambadoro is considered credible by NBA reporters, and has been close to Nash for much of the two-time NBA MVP's time in Phoenix. He also reports that the Lakers will send multiple draft picks to the Suns to acquire Nash.
The move will push the Lakers up against the salary cap, but their rich local television deal could help them withstand any luxury tax, and the potential for a trade to move Pau Gasol and his sizable salary still exists.
