While reports have the New York Knicks getting closer to a sign-and-trade that will land point guard Steve Nash in NYC, the Dallas Mavericks and Toronto Raptors haven't given up on their respective pursuits yet, as Marc Stein of ESPN reports.
Beyond any sign-and-trade talks, Mavericks remain in talks w/Steve Nash as well, sources say. I'm told Raps aren't conceding yet, either— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 4, 2012
Current reports have the Knicks and Suns nearing a sign-and-trade that would send Nash, signed for three years at $25 million, to New York for a package centered on guard Iman Shumpert. It's unclear how much the Mavericks are offering Nash at this point, but the Raptors have reportedly offered $36 million over three years.
