What would you give up to get Steve Nash

No, there's been no "according to reports" (meaning some media squawker making up a new rumor) news flash.

Just following along the lines of if Melo truly wanted to stay and the Nuggets organization (that means you Stan) truly committed to building up a contender rather than tearing down... if Melo said he wanted Steve Nash; would you make the deal and what would you give up.

We're not talking Rent-a-Wreck here; Nash is a hall of famer still operating at near peak form and has 1 1/2 years left on a reasonable ($11m) contract.

On the downside the Nuggets are weak in 2 of the 3 items the Suns would want back (young players and future 1st's). The Nuggets would have to take back 1, likely 2 bad contracts in return to get Nash for a 2year title run.

The other fly in the ointment is Phoenix may require any Nash trade partners to take Childress' bad contract.

I'd start with the following offer:

Denver sends:

  • KMart
  • Lawson
  • One future 1st Rd Pick (possibly 2 if absolutely necessary)

Phoenix sends

  • Nash
  • Frye
  • Lopez
  • Take back Warrick, in addition to Frye & Lopez, if necessary to make the deal (especially if the Nugs have to give up two future 1st's

Stay away from Childress at all costs

I'd be open to also send a future 1st, depending on what the Suns  give in return. I'd also try as hard as possible to avoid Childres' toxic contract (bad money, long duration). If Childress was a deal maker/breaker I'd at least try to make the Suns take Balkman and/or Anderson in return.
