Los Angeles Lakers Agree To Sign-And-Trade For Suns' Steve Nash, According To Report

The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that will send point guard Steve Nash to L.A. in exchange for a series of draft picks, according to John Gambadoro of 620 KTAR in Phoenix. The deal has since been confirmed by other sources, including Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

It's unclear what picks are exactly being given up by L.A. at this point, but the Lakers now have one of the league's best point guards despite Nash's advancing age. With a roster that already includes star-level players in Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, this move seriously boosts the Lakers' odds of competing for the title next year.

It had previously been reported that the New York Knicks were emerging as the top suitor for Nash, but it appears that the Suns wanted to send him somewhere that would allow him to stay closer to his family. The deal also removes another option from the market for teams like the Chicago Bulls that are seeking additional firepower.

NBA Trade Rumors 2012: Luol Deng Says Trade Wouldn't Surprise Him

With rumors swirling, Chicago Bulls small forward Luol Deng says that he wouldn't be surprised if the only team he's ever played for ultimately trades him this summer, as Ian Whittell of ESPN Chicago reports. While training in Texas with Great Britain's national team in anticipation of this year's Olympics, Deng discussed the possibility of a deal:

I believe there is always to some extent truth behind rumors. But as an athlete, if you get caught up in them, you are really wasting your time because it's not something you can control... As much as I want to stay on the team -- I love Chicago, I love the Bulls -- at the same time, I know the business part of it. Sooner or later, all the rumors are going to come up.

The 27-year-old has been a key part of the Bulls for years, but he's coming off a bit of an off year. Starting in 54 games, Deng averaged 15.3 PPG, 6.5 RPG and 2.9 APG, but he shot just 41 percent from the field, far below his career mark of 46 percent. The latest rumor has Deng going to Golden State for a package based around the No. 7 overall pick.
