The three teams with cap space in the best position to sign Steve Nash away from the Suns are the Blazers, Raptors and Nets, according to sources.
Brooklyn would be a suitor for Nash only if they were to lose Deron Williams.
The Knicks and Heat have been mentioned as landing spots for Nash, but neither team will have requisite cap room.
Sources say the Raptors are determined to make a run for Nash, bringing him back to Canada. The Blazers, meanwhile, would provide the closest proximity to his native Vancouver.
Nash hopes to sign a three-year deal that will very likely be his final NBA contract.
The Suns still hope to re-sign Nash.
The Bulls and Mavericks also could be longshot contenders for Nash.
