New York Knicks Going After Two-Time MVP Steve Nash?

Last season the most valuable NBA franchise in the New York Knicks was able to rebuild with two prominent superstars in Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. During the summer, the Knicks were able to sign the free agent Stoudemire and during the regular season made a blockbuster trade for Melo. These moves were thought to be just what this storied NBA franchise needed to get back into the playoffs and contend for an NBA title in the next few years.

Unfortunately, despite some success in the regular season, the Knicks folded in the NBA playoffs. Coming into their series with the Boston Celtics, the New York Knicks were thought to give the defending Eastern Conference champions a run for their money, but that didn’t turn out to be the case as they were destroyed in a four-game sweep.

Even though the Knicks were a disappointment in the playoffs, the future looks bright in the Big Apple as this team could be very dangerous from here on out. The only problem the Knicks face right now is that they need one more piece to the puzzle in order to contend with the best of the best in the Eastern Conference.

Despite having one of the best point guards in the league in their backcourt with Chauncey Billups, the New York Knicks are going to keep their options open and might have their sights set on trading for two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash. Not only would Nash be the ideal fit with Stoudemire and Melo, but he would make the transition from Phoenix to New York seamlessly.

With his former head coach Mike D’Antoni calling the shots on the sidelines and former teammate Amare Stoudemire in the paint; this would be the best option for Steve Nash, but whether or not these two teams make a deal before the NBA trade deadline next season remains to be seen.
