UPDATE: 10:37am AEST – Reports circulating Nash has done a sign & trade and will be sent to the Lakers. In the Nash sign-and-trade, the Suns will get 2013 & 2015 first-round picks and 2013 & 2014 second-round picks. While it may not be the circus that Dwight Howard created with his trade request, the Steve Nash trade talk, rumor mill and hear say could certainly be compared with a Merry-Go-Around. Since Free Agency opened 5 days ago and teams were once again given the green light to talk trades with each other, the question of where Steve Nash, a 2 time MVP and perennial All Star will end up has been a favorite topic among fans online and NBA Journalists. We all knew that Steve Nash was as good as gone from the Suns. A team he had given 12 All Star quality years to (he also spent 7 season with the Dallas Mavericks), but where will he end up? That’s the sticking point. 4 teams have been chasing Steve Nash in the last week. Toronto Raptors, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks .. ...
ENBA News Update: - The Los Angeles Lakers have declined two trades from the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Toronto Raptors in light of the Pau Gasol saga. Obviously the decline at this stage of the year was mostly due to keeping him on the team for Steve Nash, however the players offered may have had some upside for the Lakers (let us know your opinion). - The Wolves offered former pick in Derrick Williams and Nikola Pekovic. While the Raptors offered Linas Kleiza, Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon. - No current update on whether Carmelo will play today against the Heat. Watch this space for more updates as we get them. However we can tell you that yesterday Carmelo had this to say about J.R. Smith's game winner: 'I was hurt, but J.R. made it feel better.' - In relation to Carmelo, the Heat expect him to play. While Chalmers (finger), Battier (knee), Cole (groin) and Haslem (hipe) are all game time decisions. - Kevin Durant grew up modeling game after Larry Bird, still watches his old tapes. - Andre Drum ...

The Los Angeles Lakers have been able to vastly improve their roster during the NBA off-season. With the addition of Steve Nash to the backcourt and Antawn Jamison off the bench, the Lakers will be a force to be reckoned with once again in the Western Conference next season and beyond. Even though the addition of Nash and Jamison seriously upgraded needs in different areas for the Lakers, Los Angeles still needs a viable option to backup Kobe Bryant at shooting guard. Unfortunately, the Lakers are limited in their pursuit of a Free Agent guard and will most likely only use the veteran’s minimum to bring in a backup for Kobe. With that being said, there are only a handful of options for the team to explore. Even with limited options, the Lakers still have the opportunity to improve the position with the veteran’s minimum. Arguably the best Free Agent option left at their disposal is Leandro Barbosa. The Brazilian Blur may not be the player he once was alongside Nash with the Phoenix Suns, but he’d be ...
