It's no secret that the Phoenix Suns are willing to move Steve Nash.
But finding trade partners has not been easy.
Portland, Boston, Indiana, Utah, Dallas, Orlando, New York and the Lakers have all expressed interest in acquiring the future Hall of Famer, but so far, nothing.
Reports out of Oregon and Arizona indicate the Wizards may explore a deal involving Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee. The Suns would be on the receiving end and would in turn ship Nash to the Lakers. Washington would receive Derek Fisher, Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) and perhaps both of the Lakers first round draft picks.
The Wizards would be dumping Blatche, and his long contract, along with free agent to be McGee. Fisher and Artest, and their expiring contracts would have a short stay in DC, with the key obviously the draft picks.
The salaries match up and it makes sense to me. The Lakers would love to add Nash, it would come down to Phoenix and their interest in adding two headaches to their franchise.
