Report: Suns offer Steve Nash $12 million over two years

Jul 2, 2012, 5:28 PM | Updated: 7:12 pm

Reports are circulating that the Toronto Raptors have offered Steve
Nash a contract worth $36 million over three years
,
but
little has been said about what the Phoenix Suns, Nash’s
former current team have put on the
table.

Until now.

If both reports are true then, well, you can kiss Nash
goodbye, because an offer of $6 million per year by the
Suns will surely not be enough to keep him around.

To put it in perspective, that deal would put Nash behind
Josh Childress and about on par with Channing Frye.

Sure, Nash is 38 and not the player he once was. But he
still averaged 12.5 points and 10.7 assists per game last
season, the second number being good enough for second-
best in the NBA. While the point guard may have been
willing to take some kind of discount to stay in the
Valley, there is little chance he’ll find this offer to be
satisfactory.
