If true, can Steve Nash look at this as anything other than disrespect?

Not that he was headed back to Phoenix anyway, but Paul Cavlvisi of KSTAR radio in Phoenix reports the Suns offer is two years, $6 million per year. (Via IamaGM.com).

Take that with a grain of salt. But the two years thing was expected from Phoenix, that I don’t doubt. On the money side, that would be about half what the Raptors have already offered if true.

The Knicks are still trying to do a sign-and-trade to bring in Nash to his summer home, while if Deron Williams stays in Brooklyn you can bet Dallas will jump in with a healthy offer for Nash to reunite him with Dirk Nowitzki.

Nash would be smart to be patient and let the market come to him. He’ll get both money and a good landing spot if he’s patient.
