Lakers News And Rumors Recap: More On The Nash Trade Rumors

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Sacramento KingsRumor has it that Steve Nash could be shipped off to Toronto, which could make a lot of sense for both teams. Although this isn’t what Nash fans might want to hear, Jordan Farmar has arguably outplayed Nash in the first few games of the season. Especially since Mike D’Antoni has been electing to stick with his bench to finish out games.

If Nash were to go to Toronto, his Canadian fan base would be ecstatic and it could spark Nash in a way Laker fan’s couldn’t. Also if the Lakers were to keep the soon to be 40 year old Nash, it would be to mentor a young guard that he could mold into a future starting point guard. This said, the youngest guard on the Laker squad is an NBA champion, 26 year old Jordan Farmar.

Nash is also owed a cold $9.3 million this season and another $9.7 million next season. If the Lakers were to follow their current trend of getting rid of bad contracts for low-level salaries or contracts that expire soon, they could go after the biggest name free agents next season.

After last night’s post game interview, Nash just didn’t sound confident that his body is responding to what he wants to do on the court. “He said he could still get to his spots, but just needs his body to respond better.” This could spell bad news as Nash isn’t getting any younger and we all know father time is still undefeated.

As much as the Lakers would hate to see such a hall of fame point guard go, it would just make sense for both parties if they parted ways and look toward the future.
