ESPN insider: Suns did the right thing by Steve Nash

How could the Phoenix Suns let Steve Nash go? And, to facilitate a trade of their franchise guard to the rival Los Angeles Lakers, no less.

While fans are understandably wrestling with emotions of bitterness and betrayal after Nash’s shocking departure, ESPN NBA insider Ric Bucher urges the Suns faithful to look at the bigger picture.

“I believe that while certainly, Suns fans, this is probably a tough thing to swallow, from a league perspective, there’s currency that [Suns Owner] Robert Sarver has gained in handling it this way,” Bucher told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Show Monday.

Bucher thinks the level of respect Sarver showed Nash in working with him to find the right landing spot is a quality other free agents will admire and could entice them to sign with Phoenix.
