Knicks News, Rumors: Steve Nash A Target Next Summer?

The struggling New York Knicks could target Phoenix Suns' guard Steve Nash next summer with their $5 million mid-level exception money. Will Nash solve the team's problems in 2013?

The 2013 NBA offseason is still pretty far over the horizon. Nevertheless, the struggling New York Knicks are already making big plans to upgrade their lineup when the that time finally gets here. According to a report from NBC Sports, the Knicks plan to target Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash.

To pay for the acquisition, New York plans to use their $5 million mid-level exception. Their hopes are in part pinned on Nash's willingness to play a discounted rate to play for head coach Mike D'Antoni. That could be complicated by rumors of D'Antoni leaving when his contract ends following this season.

Besides Nash, the Knicks could target Jameer Nelson or Raymond Felton to fill their needs.

Nash scored 26 points and had 11 rebounds in a Wednesday night win over the Knicks at the Garden. Nash leads the Suns with an average of 10 rebounds per game. He currently averages 14.2 points per game.
