Lakers News: Steve Nash Admits Trading Him ‘Makes Sense’
[new_royalslider id=”135″]

Heading into the 2014 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers are considering all options with the seventh overall pick. One of those options is to combine the pick with veteran point guard Steve Nash in a trade package.

At 40-years-old, Nash is entering the last year of his contract with the Lakers and is going with the realistic approach. Nash admits in an interview with Huffington Post that the Lakers trading him makes sense:

“If the opportunity came for them to package where they could get something for the future, that makes a lot of sense for them,” Nash said.

The most recent trade rumor involving Nash has the Lakers sending the two-time NBA MVP and the seventh pick to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Michael Carter-Williams and Thaddeus Young.

Obviously, no deal has come to fruition or progressed over the last week or so, but trade talks could resurface on Thursday. If the Lakers are intent on pursuing LeBron James and or Carmelo Anthony, something must be done in order to clear cap space and moving Nash’s contract will be a priority.

In the event that Lakers do keep their lottery pick, the team could have plenty of viable options with Joel Embiid, Marcus Smart, Julius Randle, Noah Vonleh and Aaron Gordon potentially available.

As of right now, the Lakers seem to be leaning toward keeping the pick, but that stance may change if other trade scenarios surface on Thursday night.
