Steve Nash says he would ‘definitely consider’ Knicks

Well, you can add another team to the list of potential
landing spots for Steve Nash.

The veteran point guard, who is set to become a free agent
on July 1, said the New York Knicks would be an option,
should they make an offer.

“The Knicks are a great franchise and I live in New York
City (each summer), so I’d definitely consider them if
were interested,” Nash told ESPN New York.

Unfortunately for the Knicks, though, they aren’t likely
to have much cap space this summer. Barring unforeseen
circumstances they’ll only have minimum contracts to offer
free agents, and while Nash is 38 and on the downside of
his career, he’ll certainly command more money than that.

After all, point guards who average 12.5 points and 10.7
assists per game while shooting 53 percent from the floor
and 39 percent from three-point range are valuable, and
some team with
money to spend will gladly give a good amount to Nash.

Who those teams are and how seriously Nash will consider
them remains to be seen, but at this point we know the
two-time MVP will at least listen to pretty much any

“I want to wait and see what’s actually on the table,” he
said. “I’m open and excited. I’m looking at every
possibility right now.”

The Suns, Knicks, Raptors, Nets, Trail Blazers and
Mavericks have all been mentioned as teams Nash could
join, with the Hawks and Jazz also being linked to the
point guard.

No one knows which one Nash will choose — or if it’s any
one of those teams to begin with — but we’ll find out
soon enough.
