Renting Steve Nash

I hate that I'm bringing up an idea which was inspired by Bill Simmons (at least this year...of course BE has always had cries for Steve Nash), but given the recent, drastic decline of this team it seems like we might as well 'rent' Steve Nash.

Everyone on BE knows what I mean when I say that so I'll try to keep this post short...Ideally, since Nash will be leaving Phoenix this summer (I'm assuming) we will be able to trade for him while giving up very little value. Even if we can't, since our team is mostly expiring contracts (Camby, Felton, Wallace, Batum, etc.), we can afford to give up a little more. I think the team should look to commit to Batum in the offseason so trading Wallace away wouldn't be (in my theory) too harmful. Here's what a trade for Felton and Wallace would make our squad look like...

PG- Nash/Nolan

SG-We$/Crawford

SF-Batum/Babbitt (lol)

PF-Aldridge/Smith

C-Camby/Thomas/Johnson

Having an elite PG would do wonders for this team. Looking at the Western Conference, it's very easy to declare we are the worst at the position and we can't expect to do well in the playoffs without a true leader in the backcourt. Of course, what do you guys think?
