“Of course. He’s been a huge part of our team and our franchise. We want to see how good this team can be especially after playing so well lately. I’ve always been of the opinion that this trade situation is predicated on the math. On his wanting an extension, to have the maximum contract and our ownership group not feeling comfortable in giving out a max deal. I’m not really sure where it stands now and I’m not really sure where we’re gonna go but as far as if we’re talking about pure do we want Amar’e to stay and be a part of this basketball team? Of course we do.”
Nash said he wouldn’t mind the Suns bringing in a player, although he knows as well as anyone that the Suns are not taking on more salary at the deadline. He also admits that the team is not as good as its 14-3 start, but adds its not as bad as some recent outings might suggest.
Move or no move, the Suns are not a contender this year, they are a good but middle of the pack team in a deep West. But they remain a fun team to watch play, in part because Nash is just ridiculous.
