Suns Unlikely To Offer Third-Year, Eight-Figure Annual Salary To Nash
The Suns appear unwilling to sign Steve Nash to a three-year deal, an offer he is likely to receive from the Raptors and Nets.
Nash earned $11.7 million last season, but the Phoenix offer is likely to be for less than that.
"He (Nash) will have many factors to weigh," Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby said. "Candidly, we will have decisions to make. If we can get together and reach a common ground, that's fine. Regardless of the outcome, the one thing I'm confident about will be that it'll be handled with grace and dignity on both sides. We'll see if there is a basis for the relationship to continue that's best for him and also best for us."
