Raptors Offer Steve Nash 3-Year, $36 Million Deal
Sports


The Toronto Raptors have offered free agent point guard Steve Nash a three-year, $36 million deal, ESPN.com reported. Nash, 38, made $12 million this past year with the Phoenix Suns, so he would be making the same amount per year despite his advanced age.

Nash reportedly has interest in the Heat, Mavericks and Knicks, as well as the Suns and Raptors.

Nash is Canadian, and he is very popular in Canada, which accounts for much of the Raptors’ interest in Nash, who is the general manager of Canada basketball.

Nash averaged 12.5 points this past season, his lowest scoring average since the 1999-2000 season, but he also averaged 10.7 assists this year.

The Raptors already have a pretty good point guard in Jose Calderon.
