The Scoop:In his exit interview, he said this season was a "nightmare" and added the Lakers shouldn't be relying on him for next season because he doesn't know what he can bring. Nash did say he'll be back for next season, so the team will have to pay him whether he's healthy or not. He'll be one of the more talked about players in the offseason.
The Scoop:The 40-year-old Nash was never expected to return after taking over the third spot on the NBA's all-time assist leaderboard, and it's uncertain whether he'll retire this summer or attempt a return in 2014-15. Even if he does attempt to return, fantasy owners should be very leery of him on draft day.
The Los Angeles Lakers' Steve Nash, Chris Kaman and Pau Gasol will sit out Monday's game against the Utah Jazz. Gasol is out for the rest of the season with vertigo and will end the season averaging 17.4 points in 60 games. Kaman, his replacement, has a strained right calf, so Jordan Hill will start at center. Nash, plagued with an irritated nerve root, has played in two of the last four games but scored just seven points in a combined 32 minutes.
