Steve Nash is going to the Los Angeles Lakers in a sign-and-trade deal with Phoenix.
The two-time NBA MVP agreed to a three-year, $27 million contract. In return, the Suns get four draft picks; first rounders in 2013 and 2015 and second rounders in 2013 and 2014.
The 38-year-old Nash spent the past eight seasons with the Suns. The free agent had to do a sign-and-trade agreement for the Lakers to afford him.
Nash says he wanted to go to the Lakers so he could remain close to his children, who live in Phoenix.
The deal will put Nash on the floor with Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, & Pau Gasol.
