Steve Nash Rumors 2012: Nash Says He'd 'Definitely Consider' New York Knicks

Free agent point guard Steve Nash said Wednesday that he will be interested in the New York Knicks if they pursue him this summer.

Nash, speaking at a promotional appearance in Manhattan, said the Knicks would appeal to him because they are a great franchise located in his hometown.

Via ESPN New York:

"The Knicks are a great franchise and I live in New York City (each summer), so I'd definitely consider them if they were interested," the Phoenix Suns' mainstay said.

Despite being 38 years old, Nash averaged 12.5 points and 10.7 assists this past year while shooting 53.2 percent from the field and 39.0 percent from the three-point arc. The two-time NBA MVP says he thinks he'll play for another two or three seasons.

The Knicks are unlikely to have much money to spend on Nash, as they will likely be limited to veteran minimum contract offers this summer.

The Dallas Mavericks, Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat could all show interest in Nash this summer, and several other contenders could be interested in adding the eight-time All-Star. Nash said he enters free agency open to all possibilities.
