Nash to Possibly Reunite With D’Antoni & Amar’e?

November 5, 2010

From the New York Post:

CHICAGO — There are new rumblings out of Phoenix if the Suns falter, Steve Nash will on the trading block.

Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and Amar’e Stoudemire would give their left lung to reunite with the veteran playmaker. Nash lives in SoHo in the summer and has given vibes about being intrigued about ending his career as a Knick.

Steve Kerr, the former Suns president who worked last night’s Knicks-Bulls game for TNT, said he feels the Knicks wouldn’t have the pieces to land Nash. For that matter, he feels they couldn’t land Carmelo Anthony, either.

“In that situation where you want to start over, maybe rebuild, you got to get draft picks and the Knicks don’t have any. They gave them to Houston,” Kerr told The Post before the Knicks’ 120-112 victory. “I don’t see what you put together on that roster that makes sense for Phoenix. Or Denver.”

Kerr, who quit in June to go back to TV, said he can foresee Phoenix moving forward with a Nash trade if it believes it can’t win now.

“Nobody’s untradeable,” Kerr said. “I know a year ago no way we would’ve considered that. But if a team struggles and looks like it won’t be a playoff team, they have to consider all their options. But you can’t just do it for the sake of doing it. You have to hit a home run. The reality is I don’t see any deal put together for those two teams.”

Stoudemire said he would love play on the 2012 Olympic team and feels the Knicks will grant him permission.

The Knicks forbid him to play in the World Championships this summer because of insurance issues and concern over his surgically repaired left knee.

“You want to make sure you stay healthy and be ready for the regular season,” Stoudemire said. “But I think three years of staying in shape, I think it will all work out.”
