Steve Nash signed an extension with the Suns last summer and has every intention of honoring it.
The Suns dealt Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Earl Clark to the Magic for Vince Carter, Mickael Pietrus and Marcin Gortat on Saturday.
Some speculate that Nash could be the next to leave Phoenix.
"I'm optimistic that it can help us short- and long-term," Nash said. "It sounds like it would've been tough to keep J-Rich in the summer anyway so it was a chance to take a move in a new direction.
"I think all three of those guys are good offensive players so I don't think that it's going to hurt us. It gives us more size that we needed. It should be a good opportunity for us."
Suns president Lon Babby has been clear Nash is part of the future.
"I signed the contract extension to stay," Nash said. "I did that for a reason. I wanted to play with these guys, some of them. At least some of them were here when I signed. I still think we have a chance to be a good team. You just got to roll with it. What are my options? Quit?"
He could demand a trade.
"I could be in a city that maybe doesn't have the guys we have," Nash said. "I want to be positive and make this a great opportunity and a great season. I know a lot of people are telling me to demand a trade. If I demand one, does that mean I get to pick my team? No. It's not that simple. Maybe somebody could explain to me the reasoning. You can't just go in and tell management where you want to go. I signed to play here and I want to make this team a really good one."
