STEVE NASH WANTS TO PLAY FOR THE NEW YORK KNICKS
Thu, 28 Jun 2012 02:37 AM EDT

Set to become a restricted free agent July 1, Steve Nash announces he’s keeping his choices open.

“It seems rather like a company line, but my current position actually at this time is I’m open to everything,” the Suns point guard said on Monday, “and I will definitely look at every scenario that comes my way, and I’m not going to close myself to any opportunities.”

Nash is anticipated to have lots of suitors, including the N.Y Knicks. The 16-year veteran has voiced attention in playing in N.Y and wouldn’t be opposed to playing with Jeremy Lin or for Coach Mike Woodson. Basketball scores

“I wouldn’t have any fear of the fans perhaps having a love affair with Jeremy,” Nash said. “I think it’s fantastic. … That doesn’t really trouble me.”

Nash thrived in ex-N.Y Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni’s high octane run-and-gun offense.

“Everyone knows I like Mike. We had some good years together,” Nash said. “It would have been another factor, but what’s in the past is in the past. When Sun. (July 1) comes around, I am going to have to take a look at all with fresh new eyes and see what’s best for me.”

The N.Y Knicks are still waiting to see how much salary cap space they have to add a player like Nash. An arbitrator ruled that Lin and Steve Novak should be granted Bird rights, enabling the Knicks to go over the cap to sign them. But the NBA has appealed.

The Knicks are just one of several teams likely to be interested in Nash. The Miami Heat, L.A Lakers and Mavericks are also chances, as are the Brooklyn Nets if they are unable to re-sign Deron Williams. And Nash failed to disqualify staying in Phoenix.

Nash is 38, so his career is winding down. He wants to win a championship but also wants to be compensated as well.

Nash claimed he worries about the possibility of taking less cash to play for a team he believes is a challenger, just for one of its top players to get hurt — or worse, for him to be traded.

“I need to be really cautious and make a sound selection,” Nash claimed.

Nash, who averaged 12.5 points and 10.7 assists for the Suns last season, still considers himself an elite point guard in the NBA and feels he will play 3 more seasons at a high level.

So would he rather join the Miami Heat and win a title or be on the team that knocks them off?

“The reality is I am a little old school. For me, it might be hard to put on a Lakers jersey. That’s just the way that it is,” Nash claimed. “You play against them so frequently in the playoffs, and I just use them as an example, and I have the utmost respect for them and their franchise.

“I kind of have that inclination ( to try to beat the best teams ), so it is strange, but as a free agent you’re free to go where you would like, so I’d have to think about all regardless of the past or the future.”
