According to reports, the Magic center has asked the Magic front office to pursue Suns point guard Steve Nash. Acquiring Nash could ensure that Howard doesn’t decide to force a trade at the deadline.

The Orlando Magic has made offers for Nash in the past and sources close to the situation say that they’ll attempt to acquire the 16-year veteran in the next two weeks. Dwight Howard has asked the front office to pursue Nash and sources close to Howard believe he won’t exercise his early termination option if the team is able to acquire Nash and re-sign him this summer.
But the Magic isn’t the only team after the point guard Vet.
Via Marc Stein, ESPN.com:
That’s despite the fact that the Blazers, sources say, are still trying hard to pry Nash away from the Suns. ….”Portland,” says one source close to the situation, “has been interested in Nash for a while.” Said another: “Because of his age and because he can leave in the summer, offers for Nash haven’t been as star-laden as you’d think.”
The fans of Phoenix should be worried. Both teams have very solid trade pieces and it doesn’t appear that Nash is loyal to the Suns. With a chance to get a ring, and move on a team with the #1 center in the league, there is a huge chance that Nash will weigh his options accordingly and take the best offer.
If Steve Nash is acquired by the Magic, I can say that Orlando fans can say their good byes to Jameer Nelson for sure.
