Steve Nash Trade: Suns to Receive Four Draft Picks In Deal

The deal that will bring Steve Nash to Los Angeles is becoming a bit clearer.

As reported by The Arizona Republic's Paul Coro, the Lakers are sending four future draft picks to Phoenix, including their 2013 first-round pick.

So, yes, you read that correctly: The move means the Lakers do not have any 2013 NBA draft picks and only one first-round selection over the next three drafts ... picks they relinquished to acquire a 38-year-old point guard.

The Suns are now without their best player and the face of their franchise, but they now have a bevy of draft picks to play with over the next three years. They're officially in a rebuilding mode after a great run that saw them consistently rank among the league's contenders despite never actually playing for an NBA title.
