There have been rumors surrounding the Suns and the team possibly trading point guard Steve Nash [1]. President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby put an end to those rumors on Wednesday [2].

In an email to Sports Illustrated Babby wrote: “We are not trading Marcin Gortat, period. End of sentence. We are not trading Steve Nash, period, exclamation point.”

Nash does not believe he will be traded.

“They’ve told me plenty of times they don’t want to move me, so I don’t think they need to call me every day,” Nash said Wednesday. “I’m not up to date on all the rumors. Right now I have a contract with the Suns. I hope this year is better than last and I’m ready to keep playing in Phoenix and continue to build the team and win a championship.”
