article imageNBA Trade Rumors: Steve Nash to Toronto Raptors?

By Larry Seely     Nov 6, 2013 in Sports
Toronto - It figured the LA Lakers would be involved in trade rumors as the 2013-14 NBA season progresses, but the latest reports don't have Pau Gasol on the move, instead Steve Nash is the latest player to wear the Purple and Gold who could be moved.
Nash is in the twilight of his career and his play since arriving in Los Angeles has not been very good, but injuries and off court distractions on the West Coast could be a big reason for his poor performance.
Sports Illustrated has reported that the team could look to move the veteran point guard before the trade deadline and one team that could have some interest is the Toronto Raptors.
The move would have the 39 year-old returning to his home country of Canada, but it would also give the Raptors a veteran influence, something many basketball experts feel is holding this team back.
Toronto has some great talent on the roster, but the front office is looking to move players with big contracts, something that would be needed to move the former All-Star, but this potential trade would also free up cap space for the Raptors, allowing them to make a move for a big name free agent next summer.
While this might not be the biggest deal to happen in basketball this year, it would give Nash at least one year to play in Canada and possibly bring a player the LA Lakers can build around as they look to become younger and more athletic.
