Babby proud of lack of ‘circus’ surrounding Steve Nash

By the time this season is done with, Steve Nash will have
played the last eight years of his career with the Phoenix

A great player and ambassador for each one of those eight
years, the Suns have had no interest in trading the
veteran, even with his contract set to expire this summer.

That has surprised many around the NBA, as there are
people who feel it would be best for the team to trade its
star rather than hold onto him, hope to be one of the
Western Conference’s final playoff teams, and then
possibly lose him as a free agent.

However, Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby
is not one of those people.

“I’m proud of the stance that we’ve taken and I’m proud of
the stance that Steve has taken, and I think together
we’ve been good partners in this,” Babby told Arizona
Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf. “I hope the community feels
that way.”

Babby was pleased that there has been no “circus” around
the Nash rumors and, without naming names, was likely
alluding to the Dwight Howard situation in Orlando, where
the player is practically holding the team hostage.
