5 years, $65M.
1) that officially knocks Phoenix out of the Kobe-stakes.
2) the offically ends the era of this lovable duo:

    Bringing in Nash eliminates the Suns from the Kobe Bryant derby. On Wednesday night, it was reported that Phoenix was prepared to offer Bryant a six-year deal worth over $100 million.
I wonder if the Suns had already received confirmation from Kobe's camp that he wasnt interrested in them before they agreed to this deal. I have to assume it went down like that.

Furthermore, I wonder if the Mavs' letting Nash go had anything to do with them giving up on getting Shaq. Wasnt he supposed to be part of the package they were offering to get Shaq? They already werent offering up Dirk, now with Nash gone, I HAVE to assume their chances of getting Shaq are dead in the water. UNLESS They still have some other mysterious way of convincing the Lakers to give Shaq up that I'm just not thinking of???

Would Nash even be compatible with Payton?

(I think I mean that more in the reverse)

Well, while it's a technicality, it should be pointed out that Nash has simply agreed to sign with the Suns. He can't actually sign the contract until July 14.

It probably won't end up meaning anything, but I think it's important to point that out, just in case.

Makes sense. They can tell the fans "Well, we tried."

Stoudamire, Marion, Johnson and now Nash - you have to like the way things look from an offensive perspective in Phoenix - these guys could rival the Doug Moe era Denver Nuggets for scoring ability.

You got that right DJ. The only way Shaq goes to Dallas now is if Dirk is included in the deal. No Dirk, no Shaq.
