The Lakers made a sign and trade today with the Phoenix Suns to acquire Steve Nash!
We get Lakers games on TV here in Las Vegas and I am really looking forward to watching the Lakers with Nash, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Andrew Bynum next season! This was a great use of the salary trade exception the Lakers got last season when they traded Lamar Odom to the Mavericks.
also, IMO (although Phoenix does get 4 draft picks out of the deal- but none of those should be higher than late first round picks) this was a classy move by the Suns in allowing Nash to go to a division rival so he could pursue a title while staying near to his 3 kids who live in Phoenix
people here in Phoenix aren't too happy about him going to the Lakers. for me it's probably a couple years too late. plus with his defense it's not like the Lakers are guaranteed a title or something. i'd still like to see Kobe defeat Lebron though.
