Steve Nash Free Agency Rumors: Knicks Trying To Workout Sign-And-Trade; Raptors Offer $10 Million Per Year

The New York Knicks may not have the best odds to land veteran point guard and free agent Steve Nash, but the Knicks are willing to try and do anything to make them competitive in negotiations. According to the latest reported rumor by New York Post writer Marc Berman, New York is trying to talk with Nash and his representatives to work out a sign-and-trade deal with the Phoenix Suns.

If all parties are able to make a sign-and-trade work, Nash will make $5 million per year with the Knicks. That offer, however, is well below the three-year, $36-million deal the Toronto Raptors are reportedly offering Nash.

All-in-all, if Nash were to choice the Knicks over the Raptors it will be because he feels New York is closer to winning a championship than Toronto and winning is more important than money. Whether that is the logic Nash is using is yet to be seen.
