Jared Zwerling: You play in the NBA to keep playing in June. In Toronto Nash will be done in April in next few years. At his age, go to a winning situation. about 20 minutes ago

This Jared Zwerling is pissing me off.

He's a Knicks acolyte. Those guys always think they're ready for a championship. I wonder how Nash feels about a 1st round exit in NY. Knicks are usually finished long before June.

If we can't sign Batum or acquire another SF via trade, would you guys last minute try to beat the Nets offer of 4 years 40 million for Gerald Wallace (assuming we sign Nash)?

I remember when we gave Hedo that extra 500 k per year he left the Blazers for us and everyone kept asking him was it because Toronto was a multicultural city and he said no. He just wanted that extra 500 k

It's been reported that he's agreed to re-sign with the Nets for around that price

Plus I think that Gerald Wallace's game is on the down-turn. His game is based on athleticism, but because he's put his body on the line for years, it's starting to break down.

Nash has made around $150 mil or more in his career. don't think a $10 mil difference will put him in the poor house.

Steve Nash meets with Knicks, Raptors :InsideHoops

Quote:
The Knicks met with Steve Nash on Sunday knowing that they face an uphill battle in their pursuit of the future Hall of Fame point guard.

Nash also met with the Toronto Raptors on the first day of free agency and the club reportedly offered the Canadian citizen a three-year contract worth approximately $36 million.

We don't have to spend all of our money this year. If we trade DeRozan and some other players, we will still have plenty of cap space next year even with Nash on board.

The Knicks can only offer Nash a contract starting at $3 million annually unless they can engage the Phoenix Suns in a sign-and-trade. Itís unlikely since the Suns seem more inclined to use the money freed up by Nash leaving to pursue other free agents. Phoenix president Lon Babby has set up meetings this week in Los Angeles with point guards Raymond Felton and Goran Dragic as well as shooting guard Eric Gordon.

The Suns have expressed interest in Landry Fields should Steve Nash want to sign with the Knicks, according to sources.

Fields would be just one part of a sign-and-trade for Nash.

Fields is a restricted free agent.

I'm being told Minnesota is Nicolas Batum's preferred destination. They have a great shot at coming to terms on an agreement. #Blazers

Actually I think Landry is an excellent player, in the right system.. NY is a mess. I'm impressed with the big names they can attract but seems they just throw them together without a real strategy and hope for the best.
