The former Canadian professional basketball player, Steve Nash, who retired in March 2015, had earlier made it clear in the previous occasions that he had no plan at all to go into coaching. However, a recent update floated by Manila Bulletin revealed that the two-time recipient of the NBA Most Valuable Player Award Nash could make a deal soon with Golden State Warriors to become a part-time player development consultant.
The 41-year-old Johannesburg born Nash is no less in showing ability in the same line of work. As far as guiding the players is concerned, the outlet recalled his contribution in guiding Filipino-American player Jordan Clarkson, when he (Clarkson) was convalescing from injuries. If the agreement is fixed between Nash and Golden State Warriors, it will be a homecoming for the point guard positioned eight-time NBA All-Star, as he has a career history of spending two years with Phoenix Suns, six years with Dallas Mavericks, two years with Los Angeles Lakers and again eight years with Phoenix Suns.
However, Nash has received another offer from Dallas Mavericks, the team that had earlier dealt with him during his basketball career between 1998 and 2004. According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Dallas Mavericks are still looking to have a deal with Nash with an objective to reunite with the power forward 37-year-old Dirk Nowitzki. Nash was also tried to be persuaded by Cleveland Cavaliers in March this year to push for a buyout from the Los Angeles Lakers, the time when he was planning to take retirement. Cleveland Cavaliers actually wanted him to team up with LeBron James as a third point guard.

The outlet recalled Nash’s stubborn decision that he had taken since October 2014 that if he found himself physically perfect, he would only play for the Lost Angeles Lakers.
