Former Suns GM thinks Nash will stick around
"I'm going to go 50.5 percent that he stays in Phoenix and 49.5 that he leaves," Kerr told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo.
Well if that doesn't give you confidence the two-time MVP will return this summer...
Truth is, Kerr said he's really not sure what Nash will do this summer, as the veteran has a chance to leave town and join a contender or, if he wants, stay with the team he's played for the last eight seasons.
Kerr knows there are plenty of reasons for Nash to stay.
"I just think Steve is an incredibly loyal guy," he said. "I know he loves the training staff there, he loves Alvin, he loves his teammates.
"I think it will be difficult for him to leave."
On the flip side, Kerr noted, Nash will have a better chance to win somewhere else.
"You can't blame the guy for looking elsewhere," he said.
Free agents can begin signing with teams on July 11, which means we are still more than two months away from having a resolution to the Nash saga.
Will he stay? Will he go? It really does appear to be up in the air at this point.
