Lakers News: Mitch Kupchak Believes Nash’s Future Will Be ‘A Challenge’

Steve Nash’s time in Los Angeles has been a disappointment. Struggling with injuries, Nash has rarely resembled the player he was during his time in Phoenix.

Nash is one of the few Lakers who will still be under contract after this season, but there has been speculation about whether or not he will play beyond this year because of the constant injuries.

General Manager Mitch Kupchak spoke to the media, and according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters, knows Nash’s situation is a difficult one:

Everyone loves Nash and admires how hard he is working to get back on the floor. Unfortunately, he just can’t seem to stay healthy.

With a very big off-season coming up, the Lakers are in position to make some major changes with the amount of cap room they have, but whether or not Nash will play next season plays a big role in what they will do.

Kupchak referring to Nash’s future as a ‘challenge’ is interesting wording as it could speak to a number of things. On Nash’s side, just getting back on the floor or deciding whether to retire after this year is a major challenge. On the Lakers side, Nash’s salary counting against the cap or deciding whether to use the stretch provision on his contract is also a challenge.

Nash is a very interesting case as he obviously wants to be on the floor helping the Lakers. What he and the Lakers decide will be very interesting to watch.

    What’s so challenging about retirement?

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Nash hung on and hung on,he might as well ask for a buyout and chase a ring this season.Maybe he can sign with a contender and then again just forget it.Hell no contender would sign Nash since he is injured and 40 years old.Lakers are stuck.

  • Elden Campbell

    I mean is it now safe to say that its time to hang up the boots. He seriously had the restrictions of no back-to-backs, and then he played half a quarter, and from now until whenever, he’ll be day-to-day and basically need to be checked up on and uncertain each and every game and possibly each quarter. IMO, I think he was selfish for the teams sake. Because not only did the Lakers have to give away Blake, who I think was probably the 2nd leader of this team behind Kobe, but I think if he called it quits sooner than later, then we could of added a body who could of actually played some minutes. Instead he’s a wasted space on an already depleted roster. And yeah we got 2 players in Brooks and Bazemore for 1, but for Nash’s spot, that could of been handed to someone like Williams or someone else.

      Williams would have been a great call-up. Nash knows in his heart it is over. What he is doing now to his team mates is worse than selfish.

  • Robert L. I.

    There’s a saying, and it applies.
    Stick a fork in him, he’s done!

    Maybe he should go play some soccer like last summer. Seems he had no problems doing that.

    Bucks need a veteran trade nash for mayo and henson then amnesty mayo re-sign young,marshall and hill and MOST OF ALL, FIRE THE COACH AFTER THIS SEASON!
