08:12 AM ET 04.26 | Well, we know where Suns fans stand. Naturally and emphatically, a "We want Steve" chant spread through US Airways Center like lightning Wednesday night. It could prove to be Steve Nash's final game as a Suns player if he is not re-signed as a free agent in July. ... Nash said he has "no clue" about his future and remains flexible on contract length even though he wants to play three more years. To stay, he would want to see the Suns improve their roster. "I think the team could use more playmakers," Nash said. "It depends on your strategy. You could go for bigs. You could go for consistent 20-a-game scorer. Or you could go for a few more playmakers at different positions."

When it's all said and done Nash will get a decent contract from Phoenix, retire there and head straight into their front office. At this stage of his career what's the value of a championship to him? He won't be the main piece if he leaves to join a real contender so why even bother leaving? Get some more money for your descendants homie....y're an injury away from retirement anyway...

If he doesn't resign then he must go to a contender. 1. LA 2. OKC 3. NYK 4. MIA...Those are the only places I can see him moving forward with. I would say the Mavs but Cuban got rid of him once so no need to backtrack.

I've always liked Nash. If Riley Coyote had any sense at all, he'd give Nash anything he wanted to come to South Beach.

Sure he does.He has won every single accolade there is to win....except that shiny ring.If a contender is calling he will listen.And yes I think he would take less for the sake of winning.If the heat,OKC,spurs,clippers come knocking on his door, you better believe Steve will let either one in...

Spurs- Why would they sign him they have TP and Neal? Clippers- CP3, Mo, and the other kid, also the probability of CB coming back. He has a better chance going to LA- bc Sessions can be a serviceable backup, they can let go Blake and they still have the kid Morris. OKC- they can let go Maynor, slide Russell to the 2, they still have Fish, Ivy and Harden can play pg too or they can keep Maynor and release Fish & Ivy. MIA although they may have less $ to offer they need him bad they will have Chalmers & Cole as backups. #imo

they won't keep baron-he's turrible and broken

He's been the best point guard on the Knicks this season. He's the X factor. I expect a great series out of him against Miami. He's the one player that can make it all work. Hopefully he'll stay healthy and come back next year stronger.

Looking into next season.. we need to keep Novac at all cost and sign JR long term if he opts out. I don't think we can afford to Lin...hopefully we can get a decent point guard back in a sign and trade for him.

There'll be a lot of decent point ga

I trust Nash over Cole.Cole is good but he plays out of control too much.I think Nash would rather Miami too, then hopefully the heat draft smart and select Fab Melo...Heat should win back to back.

Lol... y're so sure Knicks will beat Miami in a seven game series...

Did you say contender? The only contenders in need of a PG is LA and MIA. OKC, SA, Chicago, Memphis and even Indiana do not need one. Even Boston who I don't think is a contender needs a PG.

NY like Orlando are not contenders. At least not this year and probably not next year as well.
