If Nash departs, Suns could pursue Deron Williams
Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News thinks the Suns could have interest in one of the league's premier point guards.
Brooklyn fans — it's strange to write that — won't like it, but the Suns are going to go all out for Deron Williams.
Nash remains the Suns' top off-season priority and the team is rumored to be mulling possible offers that could entice their franchise guard to remain in Phoenix.
They're hopeful that a two-year, $20 million deal does the trick, and if they add a third season that would probably cinch it since it would take Nash through his 41st birthday.
The Suns don't think Nash will sign with a contender but instead believe the Raptors, Knicks and Nets stand as their biggest threats in retaining his services.
If Nash does depart, the Suns are expected to make a concerted effort to lure Williams to the desert despite the fact the competition to land the highly-touted guard will be fierce.
