The Los Angeles Lakers are suffering through a lost season of pitfalls and injuries. One of the main reasons for all the frantic behind-the-scenes action has been the slew of injuries to the team’s point guards, including veteran Steve Nash. Since joining the Lakers a season ago, Nash’s game has declined significantly, so much so that he’s not batting an eye at the likelihood that he’ll be waived the first chance the Lakers get.
Nash doesn’t expect to be waived this season, and neither does anyone else given the nature of his guaranteed contract in 2013-14. But as for the future, Nash says his crystal ball is as broken has his body.
“I don’t know all the technical possibilities but obviously know that nothing is guaranteed,” Nash said when asked about being a stretch provision candidate. “Obviously right now I have a guaranteed contract, but the future is totally in flux and anything is possible in the NBA and frankly with my health.”
Nash isn’t giving up on this season though and is currently eyeing a return to the lineup next month. His return will be welcomed by Lakers fans just looking to get a peek at the team they all thought they were getting when Nash signed. Kobe Bryant is out, Pau Gasol might be traded and Steve Nash is uncertain about his future with the team.
Not really what anyone was expecting.
