Raptors, Knicks players in Nash sweepstakes

While two-time MVP point guard Steve Nash hasn’t ruled out re-signing
with
the Phoenix Suns, he’s sure to garner quite a few free agent offers this
summer.

One team that has been oft mentioned as
a suitor for Nash
has been the Toronto
Raptors. The Raptors boast a young squad and have money to spend, which
lends credence to the belief that Nash may opt to finish his career in his
native
Canada.

The Raptors are constantly going to be linked to Steve Nash because of
Bryan
Colangelo’s link to Nash’s Suns, which Colangelo was GM for.

Toronto isn’t the only team considered to be strong players in the Nash
sweepstakes. The New York Knicks also figure to make a concerted effort
to
land the 38-year-old guard. Although, if Nash has his sights set on a
championship, both teams could be left out in the cold.

Toronto will be in direct competition with the Knicks for Steve Nash. But
Nash
is expected to look to sign with a bona fide contender, and the Knicks and
Raptors don’t fit that description.

Nash averaged 12.5 points, 10.7 assists and 3 rebounds per game in 2011.
