The Timberwolves are one of the teams that have called the Suns to check on the availability of Steve Nash, reports Marc Stein.

Minnesota is well aware that Nash has only one year left on his contract and would likely leave after the 2011-12 season.

Phoenix isn't inclined to trading Nash and blowing up their entire roster.

The Wolves won't offer Ricky Rubio to the Suns as part of any package for Nash because their ideal scenario would be to acquire Nash as a mentor to the Spanish point guard.
