Steve Nash could join Knicks this summer

Steve Nash

Steve Nash could be the answer to the Knicks point guard troubles.

That is, if they’re willing to wait until next season to get him and Nash wants to play out his final years chasing a title in New York.

Nash refused to discuss his pending free agency but he reiterated his fondness for New York City and Madison Square Garden.

“It’s no secret,” Nash said after scoring 26 points with 11 assists in the Suns 91-88 victory over the Knicks on Wednesday. “This is the basketball capital of the world. I live here in the summer. I have a lot of friends here. My former coach (Mike D’Antoni) and teammate (Amar’e Stoudemire) play here so it’s a homecoming in some ways for me. It’s always fun to play here.”

Nash, who will turn 38 next month, believes he still has plenty of good years left in his body. He keeps himself in top condition and still has the burning desire to play.
