Lakers announce Steve Nash deal
Hill: Allen, Nash Cross Lines
Ray Allen joining the Heat and Steve Nash going to the Lakers are the latest examples that rivalries among players and teams now seem to be as shallow as a Kim Kardashian marriage, Jemele Hill writes. Story
As part of the sign-and-trade deal, the Suns received first-round draft picks in 2013 and 2015 as well as second-round draft picks in 2013 and 2014.
Nash received a three-year deal for an estimated $27 million, sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein last week. The 38-year-old Nash, who spent the past eight seasons with the Suns, was a free agent but a sign-and-trade agreement was necessary for the Lakers to afford him.
The Lakers said in a statement that they have scheduled a press conference with Nash and general manager Mitch Kupchak for Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET.
