Steve Nash: ‘I’m open to everything’
Set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, Steve Nash says he’s keeping his options open.
“It sounds like a company line, but my situation really right now is I’m open to everything,” the Phoenix Suns point guard told ESPN NewYork 98.7′s Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco on Monday, “and I will definitely look at every situation that comes my way on Sunday, and I’m not going to close myself to any opportunities.”
Nash is expected to have plenty of suitors, including the New York Knicks. The 16-year veteran has expressed interest in playing in New York and wouldn’t be opposed to playing with Jeremy Lin or for coach Mike Woodson.
“I wouldn’t have any fear of the fans maybe having a love affair with Jeremy,” Nash said. “I think it’s great. … That doesn’t really bother me.”
