Hey so, I saw this on ESPN and was immediately intrigued. I'd make it a fanshot, but it's an insider thing.
One league source pointed to Houston as the team the Suns should keep on speed dial in the event that Nash wants out, since they have a bundle of assets that could hit the reset button for a rebuilding team. The Rockets can flaunt Yao Ming's expiring deal (with half the salary picked up by insurance), a 2011 first-rounder, the league's reigning Most Improved Player Aaron Brooks and another expiring deal in Jared Jeffries or Shane Battier. If the Suns' front office wants to save money, unload some contracts and build for the future, the Rockets need to be on their list of suitors. Replacing Brooks with Nash would instantly turn Houston into one of the NBA's most efficient and high-octane offenses. With Kevin Martin, Battier and Brad Miller, the Rockets already have a three-point arsenal to rival that of any other team in the league. And don't let the record fool you: Houston's point differential suggests that even though the standings say it's 16-18, it's more like an 18-16 squad.
I don't know about you all, but I have to say I think this would be pretty incredible. As much as I hate to admit it, the Rockets don't win with defense, we just don't. With that in mind, why wouldn't we be interested in bringing probably the best all around offensive point guard of the last decade? Let's say, theoretically, that we do the deal. I don't think it would negatively affect our chemistry too much, and I think that having Lowry to keep Nash from getting worn down would be a huge difference for him when it came to the playoff run. I don't know, I just think it's interesting. What do you all think?
