When was the last time they signed a player to a contract that avg $20M/yr?

Sarver has always been about reducing salary. Even if it meant giving away players and 1st round picks. The Suns laid off the most staff in the NBA last season.

we need to plan for the future. right now nash is worth less to this team than brooks or lowry because when the team is ready to compete for the championship he will probably be retired.

Maybe a few years ago. But I am not so sure that still holds true.

Chris Paul, Dwayne Wade, Rondo - those are the guys people seem to want to play with. Steve Nash isn't really top of mind. Like I said, no one talks about dreaming of playing with Nash.

If he comes to Houston....it won't attract anyone.

One league source pointed to Houston as the team the Suns should keep on speed dial in the event that Nash wants out, since they have a bundle of assets that could hit the reset button for a rebuilding team. The Rockets can flaunt Yao Ming's expiring deal (with half the salary picked up by insurance), a 2011 first-rounder, the league's reigning Most Improved Player Aaron Brooks and another expiring deal in Jared Jeffries or Shane Battier.

can we actually trade our first rounder? I know you can't trade consecutive first round picks, and we've traded our 2012 pick to NJ for Terrence Williams.

I know we still have New York's pick, but still..

nash is a great ball mover and can hit the open jumpers. perfect for this team.

his defense is suspect though.

Nash is an amazing passer and all, but seriously if we have a back court of Martin and Nash, we would get murdered on defense every night, not to mention his around the same age as father time!

You can't trade two consecutive first round picks if those are the only ones you have.

Since the Rockets have New York's 1st round pick in 2012, they can trade their first round pick this year.

New York's 2012 pick is protected... Rockets can't trade their 2011 1st.

Just asking but why fix what ain't broke? Felton is playing awesome basketball. No way they get Nash. I would love Nash here, he never goes cold like th rockets, in an uptempo system, kmart way more open shots. Omg!!! Bring Nash!!!!!!!!!

I mean he can't be worse than Brooks on defense, but he is 2 times as better on offense. A leader. A veteran, in my eyes an all star. A scoring threat, an outside shooter.

+ lopez and you got yourself a deal pheonix.

Mental masturbation:

Jeffries + Brooks + 1st pick + J.Hill

for Steve Nash

Then:

3 team trade:

We give to that 3rd team Martin; plus Yao's contract + Chase + another pick going to Denver, who recieves also material from the 3rd team.

We recieve Carmelo + Nene

Nene - Miller - Hayes
Scola - Patterson - Hayes
Melo - Battier
Terrence - Lee
Nash - Lowry - Smith

And we sign Yao this summer, who is able to make a come back and contribute.

Champions, and anchel named executive of the year, thank u.
