NBA: Nash, Suns agree on extension


NBA: Nash, Suns agree on extension
Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns have agreed on a two-year, $22 million contract extension, said his agent, Bill Duffy.

The deal will keep the two-time MVP point guard under contract with the Suns through the 2011-2012 season. Nash, 35, had one year left on his contract that would pay him $13 million next season.

He will be 38 when his contract expires.

Warriors point guard C.J. Watson is close to signing an offer sheet with the Orlando Magic, according to a source close to negotiations.

Because Watson is a restricted free agent, the Warriors have the right to match any offer.

The Warriors also have Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry, Speedy Claxton and Acie Law as potential point guards.

On the same day that he left for Spain to discuss Ricky Rubio's buyout with DKV Joventut, Minnesota Timberwolves president David Kahn traded the only veteran point guard on his roster.

Was Kahn clearing room for Rubio by sending Sebastian Telfair and forwards Mark Madsen and Craig Smith to the Los Angeles Clippers for Quentin Richardson?

"This is not a precursor of any sort," Kahn said. "We have no feel yet as to whether Ricky will be joining us."

Rubio has a multimillion-dollar buyout of his contract with Joventut that threatens to keep him in Spain for another season, or possibly two. Kahn hopes to lower the number which could go as high as $6.6 million to make it easier for the 18-year-old point guard to join the Timberwolves this season.

Warriors forward Anthony Randolph is among 23 players invited to Las Vegas for USA Basketball's mini-camp, which is used to identify possible candidates for the 2010 world championships and 2012 Olympics.
