I know it's early for Ray Felton as a Blazer and I do appreciate much of what he brings to the table. However, I think the time is ripe for the Suns
to deal Steve Nash
and I believe with his playmaking ability and his ability to stretch the floor, he would be a perfect fit for this team.
I know, I know Nash's one weakness is his defense but have any of you noticed how porous Felton's is? Felton is prone to silly turnovers, bad passes and errors in judgment. Nash is not...at least not the the degree Felton is.
Nash to Lamarcus anyone? Nash to Wallace/Batum on the break? Nash penetrating the lane at will on behalf of the Blazers instead of against the Blazers?
Who would I be willing to give up for Nash? Since the trade would not be a 1 for 1 trade, who I'd give up depends on who else is included in the deal. I'd give up either Batum or Wallace along with Felton depending on who else was returned to us. If it was Felton plus Batum or Wallace I'd want to get a big along with Nash in return. Gortat maybe? Lopez? I am not a salary guru and don't even know how to run trade machine or whatever it is called. Anyone else on board? Anyone care to run a couple scenarios along these lines to see if anything works for both teams?
Am I crazy? Is this simply NOT GONNA HAPPEN? Set me straight here folks.
