Steve Nash To The Timberwolves?

There have been rumors floating for months about a Steve Nash trade to the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Let’s face it: the Suns didn’t show up for the season!  Hey, I’m as ORNG as the next guy.  But, facts are facts.

Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby had an emphatic response to a Wednesday morning report that the Suns have discussed trading Nash to Minnesota in a package for the No. 2 pick in Thursday’s draft. It came on the heels of denying another report that the Suns explored sending Marcin Gortat to Minnesota.

“We are not trading Marcin Gortat. Period. End of sentence,” Babby said Wednesday morning. “We are not trading Steve Nash. Period. Exclamation point.”

The article did note how doubtful it is that Nash would be dealt to Minnesota, a 17-65 team last season, based on the presumption that Nash would want to play for a contender if he asked for a trade and that the Suns would abide. Babby said he never has initiated any Nash trade conversation.

The Suns steadfastly have said that they intend to bring Nash, 37, back for the coming season, which will be the final year of his contract. Nash continually has said that he wants to remain with the Suns and feels loyal to his contract, franchise, personnel and fans.

Nash is staging his fourth annual “Showdown in Chinatown” charity soccer game Wednesday in Manhattan. Suns teammates Grant Hill, Jared Dudley and Gortat also will play in the game.
